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.

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
Our new rack of lamb comes already frenched—a common technique for trimming the excess fat and meat connecting the rib bones, which results in a much cleaner, elegant looking dish (that’s easier to eat!).

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
When slicing the lamb racks, use the rib bones as a guide. Place your knife between two bones and gently slice through the meat, following the direction of the bones so you don’t hit them.

Dijon & Panko-Crusted Lamb Chops with Salsa Verde Carrots & Garlicky Purple Potatoes
Title
  • 2 Frenched Racks Of Lambs
  • ¾ lb Carrots
  • 1¼ lbs Purple Potatoes
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 bunch Thyme
  • 1 bunch Oregano
  • ⅓ cup Salsa Verde
  • 1¼ cups Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsps Dijon Mustard
  • 0.7 oz Grana Padano Cheese
  • 4 Tbsps Crème Fraîche
  • 1 oz Castelvetrano Olives
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then halve crosswise. Halve the potatoes lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Pick the thyme leaves off the stems. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out the seeds. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Pick the oregano leaves off the stems; finely chop. Pit and roughly chop the olives. Grate the cheese on the small side of a box grater. In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, thyme leaves, half the garlic paste, 1 tablespoon of the mustard, and 2 teaspoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. To make the garlic dressing, to the bowl of lemon juice, add the chopped oregano, chopped olives, remaining garlic paste, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the crème fraîche and salsa verde.

2 Prepare & roast the lamb

Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the lamb dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. Place on the sheet pan, bone side down. Evenly spread or brush the remaining mustard onto the top side of each lamb rack (opposite of the bones), then top with the breadcrumb mixture (pressing to adhere). Roast 27 to 29 minutes for medium (125°F), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes.

*The USDA recommends cooking lamb until an instant-read thermometer registers a minimum temperature of 145°F.
