Great even late – part one: chicken-a-thon

Blue Apron recipe/rating: turkey steam buns

My parents have given Blue Apron a shot, and they let me try one of the meals.

If you aren’t already aware, companies like Blue Apron and Plated deliver refrigerated boxed meals along with the recipe straight to your home. All of the ingredients in the exact proportions you need.

This is turkey steam buns with quick cucumber-radish kimchi, recipe here.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Chinese steam buns

  • 1 1/4 tbsp gochugaru

You will also need a little bit of olive oil, and salt and black pepper.

Keep in mind, these ingredients were delivered on a Wednesday, and I received them Saturday – they still look insanely fresh.
