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.

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.

A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium.

From the Test Kitchen

In the 20th Century, a new entrée began to turn heads in the United States: moo shu pork. As a Northern Chinese dish, it shook up the scene of American Chinese food, most of which reflected the culinary traditions of the Southern provinces. This recipe puts a vegetarian spin on classic moo shu. We're sautéing shiitake mushrooms, carrots and cabbage­—then wrapping the vegetables up in moist, delicate Chinese pancakes. Served on the side, sweet plum sauce puts the dish over the top.

Thinly slice the celery on an angle. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves crosswise.

2 Start the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned and slightly crispy. Add the carrots and celery; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened.
