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.

From the Test Kitchen

We’re giving a medley of red, brown, and wild rice a bright, savory lift by stirring in a homemade miso-ginger dressing, then topping it with a variety of vegetables, including sautéed kale and mushrooms and crisp, sesame-marinated cucumber and radish. The velvety smooth yolk of a soft-boiled egg adds a final layer of rich flavor to each hearty bowl.

tips & techniques
Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Fill a separate, small pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once the medium pot of salted water is boiling, add the rice. Cook, uncovered, 30 to 32 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing
2 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the mushrooms. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Peel the radish; quarter lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar and sesame oil. Add the sliced cucumbers and sliced radish; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Peel the ginger; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). In a separate bowl, whisk together the grated ginger, miso paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and 2 teaspoons of  warm water. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the eggs
3 Cook the eggs

Meanwhile, carefully add the eggs to the small pot of boiling water. Cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the mushrooms & kale
4 Cook the mushrooms & kale

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the soy sauce and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
