Blue Apron April 2016 Meal Subscription Review + Coupon

Disclosure; I received this box for review.  This post contains affiliate links.


Blue Apron is a meal subscription box that sends you delicious recipes and all the ingredients you need to make the dishes.  There are two plans, a two-person plan and a family plan.  The two-person plan is $59.94/box or 9.99 per serving.  The two-person box includes two plates of three different meals.  The family box is $69.92/box for eight services or $8.74/serving.

When you sign up, you check all the kinds of food you like.  I choose not to get fish or shellfish.  Each week, you will be sent meals based on your preferences.

Korean Bao Sliders with Gochujang Mayo & Sweet Potato Tempura These little burgers are on a Chinese steam bun and have a great sauce.  As a side, there were some great sweet potatoes.

Information card

The front of each recipe has a list of all the ingredients in the box.

The back of the card has pictures and step by step instructions on how to cook the recipe


This is the finished meal.  The potatoes were a bit tricky to make, but the burgers were really easy.  I normally don’t like sauce on my burgers but I loved it.  Our whole family was able to share a two plate dinner.  The picture above is just one plate.


Creamy Lemon Pasta with English Peas, Mint & Garlic Breadcrumbs I think this was my favorite meal, pasta, peas, spinach and cheese.


This made two huge plates and there was more than enough for our whole family.  This is a meal will be making again.


Here is a closer look at the meal.

Za’atar Chicken & Pearl Couscous with Asparagus & Pink Lemon Compote This meal features a spicy and lemon chicken with couscous.

This wasn’t my favorite dish, but it was fun to try.  The chicken was really good, it has a nice spice and lemon flavor

Final Thought: This was a nice box and I enjoyed most of the recipes.  After you are a subscriber, you can skip any week in your account.  I love meal subscription boxes, because they help me and my family try new foods we wouldn’t try ordinarily.  if you want to try Blue Apron, use this link to save $20.00 on your 1st box.
