Blue Apron is a service that sends you all of the fresh ingredients you need to make three delicious meals a week for $9.99 per person per meal (with free shipping). All ingredients are delivered right to your doorstep in a refrigerated box and come with three chef-designed recipes that are easy to follow thanks to beautiful pictures of each step of the recipe. An added bonus? All meals can be prepared in 40 minutes or less!
Merri signed up for Blue Apron to improve her cooking skills and she raved about how much she and her husband loved every single meal they made. After trying my first Blue Apron meal with Merri, I signed up for one week of Blue Apron meals myself because I loved the idea of skipping out on some grocery shopping and meal planning. Plus, I wanted to get out of my cooking rut and experiment with different cuisines and ingredients I might otherwise never try!
Ryan actually surprised me with a few weeks of Blue Apron meals for Christmas and I decided to opt for the vegetarian meals to try to help me expand my meatless meal ideas. As many of you already know, I loved this gift and raved about the Blue Apron meals I made on this blog more than a few times! (The white chili with rainbow chard and tri-color quinoa recipe was probably my all-time favorite!)
When Blue Apron reached out to me this month to host a giveaway and try another batch of meals, I was 100 percent on board! From the comments I received on past Blue Apron posts, I know the service interests a bunch of you, so I figured a giveaway would be a great opportunity for someone to try the service for free. (Blue Apron currently delivers ingredients for meals for two, four or six people.)
In the vegetarian box I received last week, I received ingredients for the following three recipes:
- Three Pea Salad with Farro and Goat Cheese
- Trofie Pasta with Golden Garlic
- Roasted Poblano and Quinoa Sopes
Blue Apron ingredients are fresh and sourced from quality local suppliers and artisans and come packaged with labels so you can easily identify which ingredient you need for each recipe. The preparation, cooking and eating is up to you!
The three meals I made this week were all absolutely fantastic. I truly have not made one Blue Apron meal I haven’t adored. The only downer is that sometimes the recipes call for the use of a lot of bowls, pots and pans, so the plethora dishes that are leftover after cooking can be a bit of a pain to clean.
But when you sit down to a fresh and flavorful dinner that was basically planned for you, it’s hard to complain!
I really like the way Blue Apron incorporates cuisines from various cultures (like the Bangaladumpa Upma Koora I made in the past <— so good!) so I feel like I am truly learning about different spices and flavor combinations as I cook. And let me reiterate one more time how delicious these meals taste!
Okay, enough from me! Now it’s your turn to give Blue Apron a try. One PBF reader will win a free week of Blue Apron meals for two!
