As excitement builds for the Disney film, Lightyear, many families are looking to bring those adventures onto the family table. The new Blue Apron Lightyear recipes make dinner time an out of this world food experience that everyone will want to explore.

Over the years, Blue Apron has partnered with various Pixar films to offer recipes inspired by the stories and characters. While there is fun in each bite, parents are boosted by the knowledge that every dish is nutritionally dense. When a family dinner blends fun and function, everyone wins.

From the ingredients in each recipe to the serving size, the Blue Apron Lightyear recipes have a family friendly focus. More importantly, the cooking process is meant to engage the whole family. By having the kids help from start to finish, they become more excited about digging into that out of this world flavor.

What are the Blue Apron Lightyear recipes?

Available throughout the summer, the Blue Apron Lightyear recipes have a touch of comfort food favorites with modern twists on those old favorites. For example, one of the first offerings is Mission Control Turkey Meatloaf Sandwiches.

While grandma’s meatloaf recipe might be a classic, this version upgrades the flavor with a naturally sweet date syrup with ketchup. That nuanced sweetness will have people’s tastebuds soaring. It goes to show that comfort food can blend the past and the present in a single bite.

Also, the Space Ranger Chicken Enchiladas have just the right amount of spice. That ancho chile paste gives a glimpse of that craving those astronauts  have they are soaring around the cosmos.

Each one of the recipes pushes the palate a little yet doesn’t venture too far outside of the plate. From the Star Command Shrimp & Orzo with Vegetables and Almond Breadcrumbs to Intergalactic Honey Mustard Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli, these dishes can help families start an inspired food journey.

While Blue Apron always offers the convenience of having all the ingredients prepped and ready to cook, the service gives families confidence in the kitchen. The whole process invites cooks to learn about flavor combinations, quality ingredients, and nutritional components. More importantly, it can be that first step towards a lifelong love of cooking together and creating memories around the table.
