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.

tips & techniques
Prepare the mushroom-braised greens ingredients
1 Prepare the mushroom-braised greens ingredients

Place the dried mushrooms in a large bowl; add 3 cups of hot water and set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the fresh mushrooms. Separate the collard green or kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves.

Braise the greens
2 Braise the greens

Reserving the liquid, drain the rehydrated mushrooms. Transfer to a cutting board; roughly chop. In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion, sliced mushrooms, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped rehydrated mushrooms, reserved liquid, chopped collard greens or kale, and soy sauce. Cover the pot and cook, without stirring, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the greens are wilted. Uncover the pot and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 18 to 20 minutes, or until the greens are tender and the liquid is reduced in volume by half. Turn off the heat and stir in the vinegar. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Enjoy!

Prepare & roast the carrots
3 Prepare & roast the carrots

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then halve lengthwise. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 30 to 32 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the remaining ingredients
4 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Roughly chop the pistachios. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems

Make the syrup & finish the carrots
5 Make the syrup & finish the carrots

Once the carrots have roasted about 25 minutes, in a small pot (or pan), combine the chopped ginger, raisins, honey (kneading the packet before opening), a pinch of salt, and 1/4 cup of water. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until thickened to a syrup-like consistency. Transfer to a large bowl. Immediately add the roasted carrots; toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt  and pepper if desired. Serve the finished carrots garnished with the chopped pistachios and chopped parsley. Enjoy!
