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.

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.

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

    Mexican-style flavors abound in these burgers thanks to a cooling sauce of sour cream mixed with guacamole that tops beef patties—elevated with classic spices like paprika, ancho chile powder, and more.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 28 to 30 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced  with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Prepare the remaining ingredients
    2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Halve the buns. Halve the lime crosswise. In a bowl, combine the sour cream, guacamole, and the juice of 1 lime half; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

    Cook the patties
    3 Cook the patties

    Sprinkle both sides of the patties with all but a pinch of the spice blend. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned patties. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through* (the center will still be red or pink). Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

    Make the lime mayo
    4 Make the lime mayo

    In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, remaining spice blend, and the juice of the  remaining lime half; season with salt and pepper.

     Toast the buns & serve your dish
    5 Toast the buns & serve your dish

    Working in batches if necessary, add the halved buns, cut side down, to the same pan. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and creamy guacamole. Serve the burgers with the roasted sweet potatoes on the side. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with the lime mayo and garnish with the cheese. Enjoy!
