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.
Diabetes Friendly
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. For those chefs following ADA guidelines, it is recommended that no additional salt be added to this recipe when prepared and for chefs to skip all salting steps of a recipe.

In this Asian-inspired twist on a classic, sweet and smoky black garlic (an aged variety) mixed into our juicy pork burgers gives them a savory boost and results in a deliciously charred exterior. A unique spin on potato salad seasoned with kombu and a tangy slaw complete the meal.

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot with water; add a big pinch of salt. Heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Peel and finely chop the ginger to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Peel and finely chop the garlic. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze and soy marinade

Cook the potatoes & make the potato salad:
2 Cook the potatoes & make the potato salad:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the mayonnaise, ketchup, kombu, and half the vinegar; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Make the slaw:
3 Make the slaw:

While the potatoes cook, in a large bowl, combine the sliced cabbage, sugar, remaining vinegar, half the chopped ginger, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

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

While the slaw marinates, in a large bowl, combine the pork, chopped garlic, and remaining chopped ginger; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the patties and loosely cover with aluminum foil;  cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

5 Toast the buns & serve your dish:

To the pan of reserved fond, add the buns, cut side down. Cook on medium-high, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and sauce. Serve the potato salad and slaw on the side. Enjoy!
