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.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter the lime. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream and half the tomatillo-poblano sauce; season with salt and pepper.

2 Make the slaw

In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime zest, and the juice of 2 lime wedges. Add the sliced cabbage and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

3 Make the filling

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the drained beans and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add the remaining tomatillo-poblano sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water. Cook, stirring frequently and mashing the beans with the back of a spoon, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thickened. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the grated cheese and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

4 Assemble the flautas

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Evenly divide the filling among the centers of the tortillas; tightly roll up each tortilla around the filling.

5 Cook the flautas & serve your dish

In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium until hot. Carefully add the flautas, seam side down. Cook, without turning, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, turning occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned and crispy on all sides. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt. Let cool at least 2 minutes before serving. Serve the cooked flautas with the slaw. Serve the tomatillo sour cream and remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
