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.

This dish owes its incredible depth of flavor to the sauce, which we’re using both to roast the vegetables and to finish the dish. It’s made with soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin and sweet white miso paste. In the oven, the natural sugars of the mirin and miso paste caramelize, enhancing the natural sweetness of the carrots. The complex, savory-sweet sauce also works its magic on the Tokyo turnips, a mild and juicy variety we’ve sourced specially for this recipe.
