Now and Then: A Year in Blue Apron Recipes

Right around this time last year, we were shipping out the first-ever Blue Apron boxes. We crafted our recipes, spec’d out ingredients, and sent you boxes. Those were delicious recipes–time-tested favorites our chef had perfected over the years. Since then, we’re created hundreds of incredible new recipes, stir-fries, sandwiches, salads, and spaghetti

Now that time has magically propelled us back to the beginning, we’re re-sending you some of our favorites from early on. That means you’ll get to enjoy the Sweet Miso Cod and Seared Hanger Steak we love so much.

In celebration of how far we’ve come, we thought we’d share a few flashbacks with you! Take a look at how we’ve updated five of the yummiest recipes from this time last year.

Sweet Miso Cod with Snap Peas, Farro & Lime Beurre Blanc

This dish combines the sweet, earthy essence of miso with the citrus bite of lime. The roasted cod is accompanied by crisp sugar snap peas and farro, an Italian whole grain. Farro’s nutty, chewy texture is versatile enough to pair with almost any other flavors. Not only is this recipe super fast, but it also explodes with a unique combination of flavors and textures.

Seared Hanger Steak with Rosemary Fingerling Potatoes & Green Bean Salad

Prized for its flavor, hanger steak is the choice cut of beef for those in the know. It has even earned the nickname “butcher’s steak” because butchers would often reserve it for themselves rather than offering it for sale. In this dish, we highlight the hanger steak’s incredible flavor by serving it alongside jewel-like potatoes and a crisp green bean salad.

Barbecue Cornish Game Hen with Coleslaw & Sautéed Corn

Barbecue chicken with slaw and corn is traditional across the American South. Flavors of the sauce itself can vary from state to state. Ours has a terrific balance of sweet and tangy notes and coats a Cornish game hen in place of chicken. We spice up the typical coleslaw and corn with sesame oil and cilantro. It’s a flavorful twist on an American classic!

Lemongrass Shrimp with Soba Noodles & Chinese Broccoli

Lemongrass is an ancient herb from Southeast Asia used for a variety of purposes the world over. Interestingly, it repels most insects but attracts bees, and is known throughout the Philippines and Indonesia as a beekeeper’s friend. In this recipe, the bright citrusy notes of this exotic herb pair beautifully with shrimp and buckwheat soba noodles.

Thai Chicken Burgers with Hoisin Mayo & Potato Wedges

This recipe for one-of-a-kind burgers, flavored with a unique blend of Eastern herbs and seasonings, is a longtime Blue Apron favorite. The special sauce, a simple combination of hoisin sauce and mayonnaise, is also perfect for dipping the rustic, roasted potato wedges. All in all, it’s the ideal meal for a casual night in with your favorite show. Relax and enjoy!
