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.

3 Cook the patties

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface.

Add the onion rounds to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook on medium-high 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until the onion rounds are softened and lightly browned. Leaving any fond in the pan, transfer to a work surface.
