Do you hate the grocery store or sometimes feel too tired to shop after work? If you need a break from the store and still want healthy and great tasting home cooking I suggest you try Blue Apron. I had such a fun experience this past week cooking with Blue Apron and want to thank them for sponsoring this post. Blue Apron is a meal delivery program and so much more. Think of Blue Apron meals as a beauty box or subscription service that delivers fresh ingredients and recipes right to your door weekly.
To get started you simply sign up and submit your meal preferences (vegetarian, meat, no fish, fish, ect.). Once that’s done, sit back and wait for your meals to arrive. Once my box arrived, I unpacked it and checked out the menu; Filipino – Style Beef Picadillo, Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur and Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote were the meals I made.
Blue Apron has a special offer for Horses & Heels readers – New Blue Apron Meal subscribers can receive their first two meals for FREE! You must click on this special link to take advantage of the offer. Questions? Feel free to ask.
Up first was the Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur. All of the ingredients come pre-measured and with step by step instructions for preparing your meal. Blue Apron meals plans, shops, measures and delivers for you. After about 30 minutes of cooking Adam and I had an amazing dinner and a glass of wine. Blue Apron makes cooking easy and cooks on every level can learn something here.
My only experience with bulgur wheat was in a warm cereal and it tasted great with the shallot, garlic and parsley.
Up next was the Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote. Pattypan squash was a vegetable I never tried before and cooking with parchment paper was new to me so I really enjoyed making this meal.
In case you were wondering En Papillote means food cooked and served in a paper wrapper. While the term sounds fancy (blame it on France), it’s actually very simple to cook with the parchment paper.
The cod topped with the fresh herb salad and tricolor quinoa was so good! Am I making you drool with some of these recipes? Blue Apron does have a summer cookbook that you can purchase from them online.
And finally, the Filipino – Style Beef Picadillo with Chayote Squash and Jasmine Rice.
Again I tried something new, chayote squash! It was a fantastic meal that I would definitely make more of.
