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.

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Add the sliced cucumber. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each snap pea pod. Halve the peas crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. In a bowl, combine the halved peas, chopped garlic, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped bok choy stems. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), black bean sauce, and 1 tablespoon of warm water. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the rice
2 Cook the rice

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup 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.

Cook the steak
3 Cook the steak

Meanwhile, pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Cook the vegetables
4 Cook the vegetables

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the prepared pea mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped bok choy leaves. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until wilted. Turn off the heat.

5 Slice the steak & serve your dish

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steak; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked vegetables, sliced steak, and marinated cucumber (including any liquid). Drizzle with the sauce. Garnish with the sesame seeds and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
