600 Calories Or Less
All of these delicious recipes come in at 600 calories or less per serving, ideal for those who choose to monitor their caloric intake, without sacrificing flavor. The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.
Mediterranean Diet
Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Plant-Forward
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

Our diabetes friendly offering allows you to enjoy wholesome options while adhering to the guidelines set forth by the nutrition experts at our partner at the American Diabetes Association. A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium.

instructions
Make the batter
1 Make the batter

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Wash and dry the lemon; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 2 teaspoons. In a small pan, heat the butter on medium-high until melted (or melt in a medium bowl in the microwave). Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the eggs, ricotta, brown sugar, and lemon zest. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Add the almond flour and cornbread mix; whisk to incorporate. 

Bake the cake
2 Bake the cake

Lightly grease an 8-inch square (or 11-inch by 6-inch) baking dish. Transfer the batter to the baking dish; spread into an even layer. Bake, rotating the baking dish halfway through, 18 to 22 minutes (for 8-inch) or 20 to 24 minutes (for 11- by 6-inch), or until the cake is set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool about 1 hour, or until room temperature (for quicker cooling, place in the refrigerator).

Make the glaze & serve your dish
3 Make the glaze & serve your dish

Meanwhile, quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, the juice of 2 lemon wedges (you will have extra), and 1 teaspoon of water. Whisk to combine (if the glaze seems too thick, gradually add 1 teaspoon of water at a time to achieve your desired consistency). Top the cooled cake with the glaze and spread into an even layer; cut into 9 equal-sized pieces. Enjoy!
