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.

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 dish, we’re elevating hearty brown rice by tossing it together with browned butter (or butter toasted until it develops an especially nutty flavor) and a quick sauté of sweet corn. It’s the perfect companion to simply seared chicken topped with juicy tomatoes and fresh parsley marinated with cider vinegar for deliciously bright flavor.

tips & techniques
Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the rice. Cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm. 

Prepare the ingredients & marinate the tomatoes:
2 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the tomatoes:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine in a bowl. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; finely chop the leaves. Halve the tomatoes. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. In a separate, medium bowl, combine the halved tomatoes and half the chopped parsley. Add half the vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the corn:
3 Cook the corn:

While the tomatoes marinate, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared corn, shallot, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the chicken:
4 Cook the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

Finish & serve your dish:
5 Finish & serve your dish:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat the butter on medium-high until melted. Add the chopped rosemary. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the foam subsides and the butter is fragrant (it should smell nutty and toasted). Turn off the heat and stir in the remaining vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Add the browned butter and cooked corn to the pot of cooked rice; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Slice the cooked chicken crosswise. Serve the sliced chicken over the finished rice. Top with the marinated tomatoes (including any liquid). Garnish with the remaining chopped parsley. Enjoy!
