Vietnamese Meatballs And A Blue Apron Review – I’ve teamed up with Blue Apron to share with you their delicious meals.
Vietnamese Meatballs with sweet potato noodles and daikon radish- full of wonderful flavors, made with wholesome ingredients and very easy to prepare, following Blue Apron’t instructions.
Trying Blue Apron’s meals was one of the most exciting things I’ve done during this past month.
I’ve been hearing about Blue Apron (a meal delivery service) for a very long time. I often watch their TV commercials. I thought, this sounds perfect. I need to try it one day. And this day finally came! I’m glad I had this opportunity, because I have so much to say out their food delivery service.
Of course I love to cook and come up with recipe ideas. But even though I’m a food blogger and my job is to share simple and delicious recipes, I sometimes run out of fresh ideas…
Or, I’m sometimes missing some of the ingredients necessary for a recipe. Going back to the store for something I forgot and don’t have a substitute for with a young baby is not fun… As much as I enjoy meal planning, I’ve been so tired lately, that I find it difficult to do.
Also as a food blogger, I have my niche, but I love exploring new cuisines. Blue Apron has helped me with this. Two of the three recipes were Asian. I love Asian food, but almost never cook it, so I was extremely happy to prepare these.
This was my first time making dumplings… And the spices, that are conveniently included with all meat/produce – this is perfect for me! No need to search for exotic spices and buy bottles of them – with Blue Apron, you get just the right amount of spices you need for the recipe.
For example, one of the recipes in my meal delivery called for lemongrass. While I love its flavor, not many stores around here carry lemongrass… With Blue Apron, I got a stalk of it for my recipe.
Fresh ingredients, showing right at your door, for less than $10 a meal. Recipes included. Blue Apron is just so much fun!
Blue Apron is convenience. Blue Apron is all about excellent quality ingredients. Blue Apron is all about cooking. Teaching people how to cook.
There are recipe cards with step by step recipes (pictures included, too!) and nutrition information included with each recipe. How can I not love it?
Everything I cooked tasted delicious!
It was quick to prepare, following their instructions.
Recipes were diverse and perfect for me!
Simple, seasonal ingredients. Classic cooking techniques. Very delicious meals, that are cooked in your home, cooked by you!
I made these Vietnamese meatballs. My husband loves Asian meatballs.
He often orders them at a Vietnamese place, we go to. I would never think of making them at home, because I need to buy all the spices and they might not turn as good as the restaurant ones. Well, with Blue Apron’s ingredients and recipe, these turned out even better. The aromas in my kitchen, while cooking these were amazing!
Juicy meatballs with a trio of aromatics: ginger, scallion and fragrant fresh lemongrass. Serve atop deliciously springy sweet potato noodles (made from the starch of the vegetable), tossed with a unique saute of celery and daikon radish.
I also made :
Seared Chicken with Roasted Honeynut Squash & Garlic Rice
Shrimp & Shiitake Dumplings with Sautéed Bok Choy & Soy Dipping Sauce (the yummiest of the three for me!)
