The Tastiest Instagrams of Your Blue Apron Meals

Hey, Blue Apron Chefs! Your instagram feeds overwhelm us with the amazing tastiness of your home-cooked meals, and we wanted to take the opportunity to show the world how you prep, cook, plate, and eat your Blue Apron dinners.

Scroll down to check out your incredible photos of Shrimp & Asparagus Fried Rice, Roast Beef with Horseradish Sour Cream & Heirloom Carrots, Fried Green Tomatoes with Crunchy Vegetable Slaw–plus a puppy.

Want your meals shown off in the next round-up? Add photos of your ingredients, cooking, or dinner to instagram, tag @blueapronmeals and #blueapronmeals, and make sure your account’s not private. We’ll highlight the absolute yummiest in our next edition of Tastiest Instagrams.

In the meantime, follow us on instagram.

And the winner is….

Thanks to all of you who participated in our first photo contest! We loved seeing your creative plates and delicious renditions of Hanger Steak with “Creamed” Spinach & Lemon-Butter Purple Potatoes,  Steak Fajitas with Guacamole, and Blood Orange Roasted Salmon with Chickpea & Cucumber Salad. It was tough to narrow it down to a top 20, let alone top 3, but after much team deliberation, we’ve selected our winners!

First prize, the Kikuichi chef’s knife, a spot on our wall, and a free week of Blue Apron,  goes to @giselitapr and her pup Lola!

Enter to Win: Our First Photo Contest!

Dear Blue Apron Chefs,

Each week, we love seeing all of the photos you all post on social media. We’ve even begun decorating our office with your artwork! We love seeing our customer’s cooking skills in action, and we’d like to see more of your handiwork on our wall — so we’re rounding up the best photos on Instagram for our latest office improvement project.

What’s in it for you? We’ll pick three winners for a spot on our wall and to receive a free week of Blue Apron! One grand prize winner will receive a Kikuichi chef’s knife, valued at over $250. These knives are handcrafted in Japan, forged by master sword makers.  They are preferred by our chef — you might even notice one on the back of the recipe cards!

To enter, just post photos of your culinary creations to Instagram, and tag it with #BlueApronContest. Each recipe is a new chance to win!  We’ll pick our favorites and announce the winners on April 1, giving you 3 full weeks to show us your stuff.

Thanks for cooking with us,

The Blue Apron Team
