600 Calories Or Less

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.

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.

From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
For incredible depth of flavor, we’re using a savory-sweet mix of coconut milk, yellow curry paste, peanut butter spread, and tamarind paste to create this rich, silky smooth curry.

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
A staple of Thai cuisine, vibrant yellow curry paste is a concentrated blend of hot chiles, lemongrass, turmeric, and more, beloved for its delightfully bold, spicy flavor.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the leaves and stems. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the tamarind paste, sugar, peanut butter  spread, the juice of 2 lime wedges, and 2 tablespoons of water. Whisk until smooth. Pick the mint leaves off the stems. Roughly chop the peanuts

2 Start the curry

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped bok choy stems, diced pepper, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt  and pepper. Cook, stirring  occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the curry paste. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined.

To the pan, carefully add the coconut milk (shaking the can before opening) and sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. Using your hands, remove and discard the tough side muscle from each scallop. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned scallops in an even layer. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished curry and noodles topped with the cooked scallops. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions, mint leaves (tearing just before adding), and chopped peanuts. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
