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.

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

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
This colorful dish features our Australian yellowtail fillets, which boast a light, buttery texture and deliciously mild, slightly sweet flavor.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
For extra richness, you’ll make this delightful pan sauce by cooking mustard, cream and demi-glace together in the reserved fond from the fish, which adds even more deep, savory flavor to the dish.

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to a boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Roughly chop the onions. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems.

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pancetta.

Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
