I first posted about my experience with Blue Apron back in January and Sunday night I made one of the most ambitious meals ever and honestly if it wasn't for them, I don't think I would have tried to make it! I don't normally eat Thai food nor would I think to try to make it! After following the recipe, I realized it actually wasn't that hard and couldn't wait to share with you!
The benefits of attempting this type of meal with the Blue Apron service is that these harder to find ingredients are already included and you can really taste the freshness in each meal.
1. After you have washed and chopped your fresh produce put off to the side - make sure the Gai Lan ends are chopped off.
2. Heat a large pot of water so that it starts boiling
3. In a medium bowl stir the coconut milk powder with 1/2 a cup of water until smooth
4. In a large pan heat 2 teaspoons of oil and add the garlic and ginger for about 1 minute - until you start to smell the aromas
5. Add in the gain lan, half the basil and 2 tablespoons of water and season with salt and pepper! About 2-4 minutes!
6. Once the water has boiled, place the noodles to cook for about 4 minutes...you want them to be a little firm to the bite - transfer them to the pan once done
7. Add the shrimp, coconut milk powder mixture, 1/2 a cup of water all together into the pan
8. Cook until the shrimp is thoroughly cooked - once done remove from heat and stir in the juice of two lime wedges!
Garnish with cilantro, peanuts and the other two halves of the lime wedges. All that's left to do is enjoy!
This recipe took about 30 minutes including prep time to make, as is the case for almost all Blue Apron meals and was under 600 calories! I'm already looking forward to the lamb meatball stew and blackened cod that's on their menu this week!
