Blue Apron is teaming up once again with Disney and Pixar (like they did for Luca and Soul) to celebrate the newly released Lightyear, in theaters now. These four limited-time recipes are designed to be kid-friendly and will blast your tastebuds out-of-this-world!
Blue Apron was gracious enough to send a box full of ingredients with recipes so that we could create our own Lightyear-inspired meals at home. We received the following meals,
- Intergalactic Honey Mustard Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli
- Mission Control Turkey Meatloaf Sandwiches with Roasted Green Beans & Date Ketchup
Although we did not taste-test all four recipes, these options are also available.
- Space Ranger Chicken Enchiladas with Cilantro Sauce & Caramelized Onion
- Star Command Shrimp & Orzo with Vegetables & Almond Breadcrumbs
The only recipe we felt was missing was the “meat sandwiches” from the film, you know meat-bread-meat – ha!
If you’re anything like us, our weekly meal planning is very predictable as we tend to keep making the same meals over and over again! Thanks to Blue Apron we have a few new recipe ideas to throw into the mix as both recipes we were sent were fantastic!
Our favorite Lightyear-inspired recipe was the Mission Control Turkey Meatloaf, our entire family thought it was fantastic, even our 8-year-old son was wowed! From the seasoned green beans to the date ketchup spread — this was the recipe that we all wanted more of. Keep in mind that each Blue Apron recipe is crafted by a certified nutritionist to ensure healthy eating habits for not only kids, but for everyone.
