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.

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.

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.

These juicy, mustard-infused pork burgers, served between two delicious layers of barbecue sauce, show off a uniquely satisfying topping: homemade onion rings. With a quick trick—soaking the onion in cold water first, to soften its flavor and help the flour stick—you’ll achieve restaurant-quality crispiness. On the side, buttery, garlicky corn on the cob and tangy pickle chips round out our updated summertime classic.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel the onion and thinly slice into rings; separate the layers and place in a bowl of cold water. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems. Remove and discard the corn husks and silks; halve the cob. Halve the buns.

Make the garlic-herb butter:
2 Make the garlic-herb butter:

In a bowl, combine the butter, garlic paste and parsley. Using a fork, mash and stir to thoroughly combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the onion rings:
3 Make the onion rings:

Thoroughly drain the onion; pat dry with paper towels. Transfer to a bowl. Add the flour and toss to thoroughly coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. Once hot enough that a pinch of flour sizzles immediately when added to the pan, working in batches, add the coated onion in a single, even layer. Cook, turning occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt and pepper. Set aside in a warm place. Carefully discard the oil and wipe out the pan.

Form & cook the patties:
4 Form & cook the patties:

While the onion cooks, in a medium bowl, combine the ground pork (removing and discarding the paper lining from the bottom) and mustard; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into two ½-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate. In the same pan, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook, loosely covering the pan with foil, 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Loosely cover the cooked patties with foil.

Cook & dress the corn:
5 Cook & dress the corn:

While the patties cook, add the corn to the pot of boiling water and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bright yellow and slightly softened. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Off the heat, add the garlic-herb butter and toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside in a warm place.

Toast the buns & plate your dish:
6 Toast the buns & plate your dish:

Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the buns, cut sides down, and toast 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Spread half the barbecue sauce onto the toasted bun bottoms. Top with the cooked patties, remaining barbecue sauce and onion rings. Complete the burgers with the bun tops. Divide the burgers, dressed corn and pickle chips between 2 plates. Enjoy!
