10 Blue Apron Dinners I Love Most When I Only Have 30ish Minutes

Smoky Vegetable Enchiladas with spicy guajillo sauce and melted Monterey jack cheese are a satisfying win stuffed with black beans, zucchini, and poblano peppers. Or go for Indian-Style Paneer & Creamy Curry with plenty of veggies and zesty ginger. And the Greek-Style Veggie Pitas stuffed with marinated feta, roasted carrots, olives, dukkah seasoning, and velvety tzatziki taste like a sun-kissed trip to Greece.
Versatility is what it’s all about in the One-Pan White Bean & Saffron Skillet, which simmers eggs, beans, spinach, and tomatoes in a saffron-scented broth. The best thing is it works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The same could be said of the Black Bean & Quinoa Bowls, which are studded with toasted pepitas, roasted sweet potatoes, and silky guacamole; or the Potato Hash & Eggs, with wholesome kale and a lovely kick of hot sauce.
For the omnivore who’s looking for lean proteins, Blue Apron’s Crispy Skin Salmon is an ace in the hole. In 30 minutes, you’ll serve up a restaurant-caliber fillet with a golden-raisin-flecked farro salad beneath a bright and tangy salsa verde. Or consider the Calabrian Shrimp & Couscous Skillet, which pairs juicy shrimp with poblano peppers, tomatoes, and a creamy drizzle of labneh over fluffy couscous, ready in just 25 minutes.
If you’re tired of your timeworn chicken breast recipes, give the bird a gourmet upgrade in the Shawarma Chicken Thigh & Farro Bowl, layered with bold spices and topped with both luscious tzatziki and a tangy cilantro sauce. And the easy, elegant combination of Dijon mustard and sherry vinegar on the Seared Trout & Shallot-Dijon Vinaigrette will have you wondering when you became an accomplished French chef.
Blue Apron’s Vegetarian and Wellness menus are good reminders that with a little help, doing something good for ourselves is totally within our powers.
