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.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the vinaigrette

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges, keeping the layers in tact. Peel 1 clove of garlic. Halve the baguettes lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the poblano peppers; remove the cores, then quarter lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the shishito peppers. Throughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board  immediately after handling the peppers. Combine the onion wedges, quartered poblano peppers, and prepared shishito peppers in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oregano, and mayonnaise; season with salt and pepper.

To the bowl of prepared onion and peppers, add a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Reserving the bowl, transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer on one side. Place the halved baguettes, cut side up, on the other side of the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast 7 to 9 minutes, or until the baguettes are lightly browned. Leaving the oven on, carefully remove the baguette from the oven; transfer to a cutting board. Return the vegetables to the oven and roast 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a cutting board.
