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.

    Honey-Sambal Turkey Lettuce Cups with Sweet Peppers & Mushrooms
    Title
    • 2 Tbsps Soy Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
    • ½ lb Cremini Mushrooms
    • 2 heads Butter Lettuce
    • ½ lb Sweet Peppers
    • ⅓ cup Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics
    • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
    • 3 Tbsps Roasted Peanuts
    • 4 tsps Honey
    • 1 lb Plant-Based Ground Beyond Beef™
    • 1 cup Sushi Rice
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 3/4 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey (kneading the packet before opening), vinegar, sesame oil, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    3 Make the filling

    In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Add the Beyond Beef™; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the Beyond Beef™ apart with a spoon,  2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Add the sliced peppers, sautéed aromatics, and half the sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the Beyond Beef™ is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
