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.

These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

    From the Test Kitchen

    For this vibrant dish, you’ll sear marinated tofu and glaze it in the pan with a sweet and savory mix of fresh orange juice, orange marmalade, spicy sambal, and more, then serve it over sautéed vegetables and hearty brown rice. A garnish of roasted cashews lends a bit of nutty flavor and crunch to each bite.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off the top and bottom of the kohlrabi to create a flat surface; using a knife, cut down along the curve of the kohlrabi to remove the green skin. Halve lengthwise; if present, remove the core, then small dice. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the orange crosswise; squeeze the juice into a medium bowl. Add the soy-miso sauce, orange marmalade, sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Roughly chop the cashews

    Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl; add the coconut aminos and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate at least 5 minutes.

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced kohlrabi in an even layer.

Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and snow peas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl.
