My New Favorite Thing About Blue Apron
If you follow me on Instagram, last week I talked about Blue Apron’s new customization feature which I just think is so cool. How many times have you gone to select a meal and thought “oh well this dish would just be perfect if it just….”
- had vegetables instead of potatoes…
- a different fish…
- let me pick chickpea pasta instead of traditional pasta…
You get the point! Well now, you can do it.
Blue Apron launched customization this month and I absolutely love it. You know by now that I’m a huge huge fan of their service. I had it in Brooklyn (see my first blog post here!) and now again in Charleston. I love their service so much. And I feel like it’s made me a better cook! I’ve learned to pair ingredients I wouldn’t usually think to pair together, I love that the kits have everything you need so that you don’t waste food but also get exactly what you need and don’t have to spend time trying to track down more difficult to find ingredients, and… it’s FUN. I’ve said this before: I am not a bad cook but I am not a creative cook… this puts the fun and creativity back into it.
This week, I made their Tilapia with Brown Butter, Swiss Chard, and Garlic Rice – except, I swapped it for salmon. To be honest, every time I make tilapia I mess it up… it just gets a little too dry. Salmon is (for me) easier to cook, and probably my favorite fish.
I think this may have been one of my favorite things I’ve ever made. Garlic rice… and that sauce is DELICIOUS!
Note: not every meal is customizable. After you sign up you will want to check out the meals available and look for the customization arrows to see how and if a meal can be customized! This is such a thoughtful, smart new feature!
