Tips for using leftover Blue Apron spice blends
Rub them on proteins
Any of our custom spice blends will work well as a rub on proteins like chicken, pork loin, or fish. Try using any leftover Weeknight Hero spice blend on chicken thighs. Just coat your protein with the spice blend, season with salt, and then cook as directed by your recipe.

Mix them into grain bowls
Stir leftover spice blends into rice, farro, or fregola sarda to create a flavorful base for a grain bowl. After your grains are flavored, top them off with roasted vegetables, proteins, or toasted nuts. Use whatever is in your pantry!
