Kung Pao Broccoli Black Rice Noodles with Blue Apron

This post is sponsored by Blue Apron, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Deciding what to prepare for dinner is probably harder than actually making dinner. I enjoy cooking but most of the time, I end up making the same dishes and they often lack creativity. I tried buying cookbooks to spruce up my menu selections but I never got around to making any of the dishes. Part of the problem is that I rarely have the necessary ingredients in my home.

Enter my solution:  Blue Apron!

Blue Apron is a service that delivers a box filled with groceries and detailed recipes right to your door! No more having to go to the grocery store or going back and forth on what to make for dinner.

Blue Apron does all the hard work for you. All you need to do is follow the easy step-by-step instructions and enjoy! 

One of my favorite items that comes with box, is the nutrition facts for each of your meals. Perfect to keep track of what you're consuming, especially if you're on a restricted diet. 

Every Blue Apron recipe is between 500-800 calories.

All the ingredients come perfectly portioned and packaged in the Blue Apron box.

One of my meals was Kung Pao Broccoli with Back Rice Noodles. As a pasta lover, I was excited to try out and make this recipe. I've never had or even heard of black rice noodles before opening my box.

That's one of the many reason why I love Blue Apron. I get to make dishes I normally wouldn't make or even know how to attempt to create. Expanding my knowledge of different ingredients is also helpful in becoming a better cook. I enjoy introducing my palate to new flavors and cuisines!

I ordered the two person plan which comes with 3 meals that each serve two people. All meal can be customized to fit your dietary preference. They also have a family plan that serves 4 people.

Since my meal was for two, I decided to invite my grandma to not only join me for dinner but to also help me prepare the Kung Pao Broccoli.
