600 Calories Or Less

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
    Cook the farro
    1 Cook the farro

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

    Dry & roast the chickpeas
    2 Dry & roast the chickpeas

    Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with a layer of paper towels. Drain and rinse the chickpeas; spread onto the paper towels. Using a second layer of paper towels, gently pat or roll the chickpeas to thoroughly dry; discard the paper towels and any loose chickpea skins. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 4 to 5 minutes, or until completely dry. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Add a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; carefully stir to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Return to the oven and roast, stirring halfway through, 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and crispy (be careful, as the chickpeas may pop as they roast). Remove from the oven.

    3 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Combine the halved tomatoes and sliced pepper in a medium bowl. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Cut the zucchini into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. To the bowl of prepared tomatoes and pepper, add the vinegar, up to half the garlic paste (you will have extra), and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the zucchini
    4 Cook the zucchini

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini rounds in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and softened. Turn off the heat.
