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.

From the Test Kitchen

ORIGIN
Canard à l’orange (simply “duck with orange”) is a classic French dish that has been prized for centuries for its incredibly rich, sweet, and citrusy flavor combination.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
Once you finish cooking the duck, you’ll drain off the rendered fat into a small bowl to solidify. We highly recommend storing the fat in your refrigerator for future use! Swap it in for other cooking oils for added richness and deep, savory flavor.

tips & techniques
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. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Halve the orange crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl. Thinly slice the chives. Roughly chop the pistachios. Roughly chop the peppers. Pick the mint leaves off the stems.

Roast the vegetables
2 Roast the vegetables

Place the potato pieces and broccoli florets on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook the duck
3 Cook the duck

Meanwhile, pat the duck dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a large pan (nonstick, if you have one) on medium until hot. Add the seasoned duck, skin side down. Cook 9 to 11 minutes, or until browned and the skin is crispy. Flip and cook 4 to 5 minutes for medium (145°F), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board, skin side up, and let rest at least 10 minutes. Carefully drain the duck fat into a small bowl. (Set aside to solidify. Cover and refrigerate for future use, or discard if desired.) Wipe out the pan.

*The USDA recommends cooking duck and all poultry until an instant-read thermometer registers a minimum temperature of 165°F.

Make the sauce
4 Make the sauce

While the duck rests, in the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), orange juice, and orange marmalade. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the butter and sliced chives until combined and the butter is melted. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired

Slice the duck & serve your dish
5 Slice the duck & serve your dish

Flip the rested duck to be skin side down on the cutting board (to easily cut through the skin). Thinly slice crosswise. Serve the sliced duck (skin side up) with the roasted vegetables. Top the duck with the sauce. Garnish the vegetables with the chopped peppers, chopped pistachios, and mint leaves (tearing just before adding). Enjoy!
