I am so excited to be working with Blue Apron, a fresh ingredient and recipe delivery service that helps chefs of all levels cook incredible meals at home. Even though I am a food blogger and I cook a lot, some days I do get too busy that I simply don’t have time to plan a meal and go to the grocery store…that’s when I turn to Blue Apron for dinners, and you can too! I have a special offer from Blue Apron for $50 off the first two weeks of orders for the first 50 readers to order using this link HERE!
Why do I choose Blue Apron over dining out or take outs? My answers are pretty straight forward. First of all, with Blue Apron, I am always guaranteed farm fresh, healthy, and high quality ingredients. The chef-designed recipes are top notch and absolutely delicious. There are plenty of unique recipes to choose from: 8 recipes per week, so I can practically eat like a queen, with different flavors every single day if I choose to, for example: this delightful one-pot chicken stir-fry with udon noodles.
Blue Aprondelivers all the farm-fresh ingredients, nicely packaged in the signature Blue Apron box, in exact proportions (no wastage of extra ingredients!), right to my doorstep. All ingredients are so fresh, there were two ice packs placed in the delivery box!
After I got the box, I started prepping the fresh ingredients. Look at the fresh and vibrant colors! The ingredients were as fresh as the ingredients from grocery store, except that I didn’t have to go to my store and shop. Some days, I need a day off from grocery shopping.
I am very particular when it comes to protein. The chicken was of high quality. It didn’t smell, wasn’t sticky to the touch and very fresh. The chicken breasts were already chopped up to bite-sized pieces; I just had to season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Easy peasy!
A good recipe calls for an amazing sauce. I was blown away by the perfect balance of flavors in the sauce of this stir-fry chicken with udon noodles. This is certainly a chef-designed recipe.
The recipe card offers clear and detailed step-by-step instructions, even a novice cook will be able to cook and turn the ingredients into a gourmet meal. I love this recipe as it’s a one-pot recipe, so I just have one utensil to clean after dinner. Instead of a pot, I used my stir-fry pan to cook.
The finished dish in the pan with fresh vegetables, chewy udon in a sweet, savory and mildly spicy sauce. I topped the chicken udon with some roughly chopped cashew nuts and chopped scallions per the recipe instructions, it was absolutely delicious!
All in all, Blue Apron is an amazing ingredient-and-recipe delivery service. There is no commitment when you sign up Blue Apron. You can skip or cancel the service at any time.
