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.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the pork
1 Prepare & roast the pork

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on all sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Transfer to the sheet pan. Roast 36 to 38 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Prepare the ingredients
2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel and roughly chop 3 cloves of garlic. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the piquante peppers. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove the cores, then small dice. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; finely chop the leaves.

Cook & mash the potatoes
3 Cook & mash the potatoes

Add the diced potatoes and chopped garlic to the pot of boiling water. Cook 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the cream, grated cheese, chopped piquante peppers, and half the butter; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork (or potato masher), mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Make the cranberry relish
4 Make the cranberry relish

Meanwhile, in a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped shallot and diced sweet peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the cranberries, sugar, and 3/4 cup of water; stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally and mashing the cranberries with the back of a spoon, 7 to 8 minutes, or until the cranberries have broken down and the mixture is thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Make the gravy
5 Make the gravy

In a small pot, heat the remaining butter on medium-high until melted. Add 1 tablespoon of the flour (you will have extra). Cook, whisking constantly, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and thoroughly combined. Add the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and demi-glace. Cook, whisking frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, or until thickened. Add the chopped sage leaves and stir to combine. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Slice the pork & serve your dish
6 Slice the pork & serve your dish

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested pork; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced pork with the mashed potatoes, cranberry relish, and gravy on the side. Enjoy!
