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.

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
We’re calling on the bold, zesty flavors of Louisiana’s Cajun cuisine by searing chicken in a blend of traditional spices, then topping it with a creamy take on the briny olive salad found on the region’s beloved Muffuletta sandwich.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
To remove the pits from olives, start by placing them on a sturdy work surface. Working one at a time, use the wide, flat side of your chef’s knife (and a careful push of your hand) to gently press down and release the pit.
