    Anyone have ideas for other simple sides? I've done the asparagus and potatoes several times now and my kids love them (well, my daughter doesn't really like asparagus). I'm curious about trying some other things to mix it up. I've served it with steak and chicken... I may try the salmon sometime. But I'm looking for some simple sides like these. Any ideas anyone?

    Made the potatoes and asparagus with grilled chicken. Really good. Kids even liked it. Potatoes I got were some Honey Gold thing and they were quite good. The asparagus was perfect.

    This was like an anti-plug for Blue Apron. I can't believe the amount of plastic. We get basically the same thing (in Germany) called Hellofresh and it's all brown paper bags. Why do you need tomatoes to be packaged in plastic when they're guaranteed to be eaten in the following days?

    I think the only good thing about blue apron is that if you live in a food desert, you can get fresh/unique food. They had a recipe for squid ink once or twice. I know I'm not getting that near central PA (the most we have is water chestnuts in a can). There are probably plenty of other places that could benefit too.

    bruh Blue Apron uses so much single-use plastic, it's not asking too much of people to properly shop and buy their own ingredients. pass.

    My main problem with Blue Apron is that it's overpriced. Good for someone that has the money to burn but if you're tearing through $200 a week on this even for a family of four then you need to seek a cheaper, just as good alternative.

    People watching this: Blue Apron ships by FedEx, and they don't have refrigerated cars or scheduled deliveries, so odds are those normally refrigerated boxes are gonna be sitting outside at room temperature or hotter for hours on end. They're bacteria farms by the time you bring them inside, so you're wasting money on overpriced food that's likely to get you sick anyways. Just buy your own food, save money, get what you want in your meal, and don't get sick.

    I made the first dish and my gf and I loved it! Only mistake I made was to dice everything too small (1/2in squares) this ended up in mushy apples, the sweet potatoes were just slightly overcooked. Live and learn, very flavorful nonetheless!

    In response to various critical comments on this video-

    Some people have incredibly busy lives and families, some people are mobility impaired, and some people simply don't know what to get yet because they may be new to cooking and may benefit from an expert of some kind just giving them the stuff they need with some instructions.

    Not everyone is a dumb, lazy asshat by default, and talking about them that way isn't going to change their behavior for the better.

    Also, you can recycle plastic bags. Prevention is better, but you have other options than just trashing them.

    Honestly looking to this. I'm a college student and my meal card was 2.4k a semester for the BASIC one.... :( For the same span of thyme, blue apron was more than fifty percent cheaper. Also, takes away the stress from having to shop for food considering I do not have a car as well.

    Babish, can you stop promoting blue apron (and not promote other meal kits). The amount of plastic required to individually package all of the ingredients is ridiculous and contributing to the plastic waste epidemic we have. I'm sure you have plenty of other potential sponsors that you can promote that don't damage the planet to the same degree as blue apron.

    I m also pretty confused by the use of garlic.
    Pesto is done with garlic, but maybe not this particular one,
    but anyway that pasta looks like 3 servings and 3 garlic cloves are quite too much.
    I usually use 1/2 garlic each serving

    • Nemo TheEight
