The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population.

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.

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.

    From the Test Kitchen

    This take on the classic Mexican dish (whose name is a reference to its flute-like shape) features flour tortillas stuffed with a spicy, cheesy filling, then tightly rolled and lightly pan fried on all sides for satisfying crunch. A zesty yogurt dipping sauce and a vibrant side of radishes and roasted carrots add bright flavor to this dish.

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Grate the monterey jack on the large side of a box grater.

    2 Roast & finish the carrots

    Place the carrot pieces on a sheet pan; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to the bowl of sliced radishes. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.

    3 Make the filling

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the patties; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the patties apart with a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and the patties are crumbled. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined, the liquid has cooked off, and the Beyond Burger™ is cooked through. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the grated monterey jack. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    4 Assemble & cook the flautas

    Place the tortillas on a work surface. Evenly divide the filling among the centers of the tortillas (you may have extra filling ); tightly roll up each tortilla around the filling. 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.
