A friend of mine started the Blue Apron service and when you get to a certain point, you get to send free meals to friends, and she gave me one. My delivery was this week came on Wednesday —>
It is 3 meals where all the ingredients are delivered and you make the meal.
On top of the box are the recipe cards. The 3 recipes were Spring Onion Tart, a Cauliflower Indian meal and a Greek salad.
On the back of the card are the steps for the recipe and everything is pre-portioned but not ready to use.
You have to cut up what you need. Everything was included except olive oil, salt and pepper.
First I made the onion tart. Start to finish, it took about 30 minutes. I was thinking that I would like all the stuff cut up, less work!
It was delicious, and my house smelled wonderful!! I liked all the fresh herbs!
Next I made the salad. Honestly, the salad and tart could go together as one meal.
A salad as a meal that I would be paying for -ehhh.
Even though it had olives, feta, cucumbers, and more, and served with pita chips (came with fresh pitas that I put in oven with olive oil), I wouldn’t be happy if I was paying for the service.
Everything was delicious! I didn’t make the 3rd meal yet, but making each one was about 30 minutes (even the salad).
The service is $60 (each meal is $10 a person) so for 2 people, $60/week. With 3 kids, I felt like the serving sizes were large enough to just get the service for 2. You can get it for more people (and pay more).
I selected the vegetarian menu but it seems like it should be cheaper than the meat menu. Next time if I tried it, I would do the meat menu to get more for my money!
Have you tried it? Would you be interested in trying it?
Happy Friday! Friday is our only morning with no school and my favorite morning (no rushing!) of the week!
