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. See nutrition information on your current page or at blueapron.com for sodium “as packaged”.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and small dice the onion. Peel 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop 1 clove. Using a zester, finely grate the other clove into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Thinly slice the cheese. Halve the buns

Caramelize the onion:
2 Caramelize the onion:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the balsamic vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated and most of the liquid has cooked off. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

Blanch & shock the green beans:
3 Blanch & shock the green beans:

While the onion cooks, fill a medium bowl with ice water; add a pinch of salt, then set aside. Add the green beans to the pot of boiling water. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until bright green and slightly tender. Drain and immediately transfer to the bowl of ice water; let stand until cool. Drain thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels.

Cook the patties:
4 Cook the patties:

Sprinkle both sides of the patties with enough the Italian seasoning to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and top with the sliced cheese. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the patties are browned and cooked through (the center will still be red or pink). Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

* An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

Toast the buns:
5 Toast the buns:

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the buns, cut side down, and toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. 

Dress the green beans & serve your dish:
6 Dress the green beans & serve your dish:

In a large bowl, whisk together the apple cider vinegar, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Add the shocked green beans and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and caramelized onion (you may have extra onion). Serve the burgers with the dressed green beans on the side. Enjoy!
