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.
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

To balance the rich, creamy corn topper we're making to for our juicy USDA Prime beef burgers, we're studding the pimento cheese-style mix (loaded with sharp cheddar, mayo, and fresh lime juice) with two kinds of pickled peppers—peppadew and jalapeño—for piquant and spicy flavor, respectively.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Quarter the lime. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. In a large bowl, combine the sliced radishes, sliced cucumbers, and halved tomatoes. Grate the cheddar on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the peppadew peppers. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling. In a large bowl, combine the grated cheddar, chopped peppadew peppers, mayonnaise, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Make the cheesy corn
2 Make the cheesy corn

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced scallions and corn kernels in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Season with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat; stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges. Transfer to the bowl of cheese-pepper mixture; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the patties
3 Cook the patties

Place the beef in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to incorporate. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.

Make the salad
4 Make the salad

Meanwhile, to the bowl of prepared vegetables, add the cilantro sauce, arugula, the juice of the remaining lime wedges, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; gently toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

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

Add the halved buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and cheesy corn. Serve the burgers with the salad on the side. Garnish the salad with the cotija. Enjoy!
