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.
Diabetes Friendly
Our diabetes friendly offering allows you to enjoy wholesome options while adhering to the guidelines set forth by the nutrition experts at our partner at the American Diabetes Association. A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium. For those chefs following ADA guidelines, it is recommended that no additional salt be added to this recipe when prepared and for chefs to skip all salting steps of a recipe. See nutrition information on your current page or at blueapron.com for sodium “as packaged”.

Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

Make the salad:
2 Make the salad:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice. Combine in a large bowl. Add the vinegar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

Cook the dumplings:
3 Cook the dumplings:

While the rice continues to cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a dumpling sizzles immediately when added, working in batches, add the dumplings in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until the dumplings are heated through and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Loosely cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Make the dipping sauce & serve your dish:
4 Make the dipping sauce & serve your dish:

While the dumplings cook, in a bowl, combine the soy-miso sauce and 2 tablespoons of water. Serve the cooked dumplings with the cooked rice, salad, and dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
