Blue Apron Vegetarian Recipes

May 15, 2016

Blue Apron is slowly becoming one of the best meal kit services for vegetarians. Not long ago, it only featured one or two veggie dishes on its 2-person menu, with no vegetarian options for families. Now, nearly half of the dishes on its weekly menus are vegetarian-friendly.

Those who have already browsed Blue Apron’s offer know that this company brings you some of the most creative, exciting, and delicious recipes for vegetarians. They are all incredibly quick and simple and make perfect use of all the seasonal goodness that regularly arrives at the Blue Apron kitchen. For those of you who have not yet had the chance to try out Blue Apron vegetarian recipes, we have decided to tickle your fancy with a couple of our favorites.

If you want to take the meal to the next level, serve it with a bottle of Riesling or Pinot Gris.
