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.

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.

tips & techniques
Press the tofu
1 Press the tofu

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Drain the tofu, then place on a paper towel-lined work surface. Place several layers of paper towels on top, then place a heavy-bottomed pot (or pan) on top of the paper towels. Set aside to release the excess liquid at least 10 minutes. 

Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
2 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra); toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 23 to 25 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare & marinate the cabbage
3 Prepare & marinate the cabbage

Meanwhile, cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Place in a large bowl. Add half the vinegar 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.

Make the sauce
4 Make the sauce

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the honey (kneading the packet before opening), tomato chutney, and 1/4 cup of water. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the tofu & sauce
5 Cook the tofu & sauce

Remove the paper towels and transfer the pressed tofu to a cutting board; medium dice. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced tofu in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened and the tofu is coated. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

Warm the tortillas
6 Warm the tortillas

Meanwhile, if you prefer to use the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. If you prefer to use a microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.

Season the sour cream with salt and pepper. Assemble the tacos using the warmed tortillas, seasoned sour cream, cooked tofu and sauce, and marinated cabbage. Serve the tacos with the roasted sweet potatoes on the side. Enjoy!
