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.

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

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up 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; thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. In a large bowl, combine the tahini, soy sauce, sugar, 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 until the sugar has dissolved.

Marinate the vegetables
2 Marinate the vegetables

In a large bowl, combine the sliced bok choy, grated carrots, sesame oil, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the eggs
3 Cook the eggs

Meanwhile, carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water. Cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Leaving the pot of water boiling, using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the cooked eggs to a strainer and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs; season with salt and pepper.

Cook & cool the noodles
4 Cook & cool the noodles

Add the noodles to the same pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking and cool the noodles.

Finish the noodles & serve your dish
5 Finish the noodles & serve your dish

Add the cooled noodles and marinated vegetables (including any liquid) to the bowl of sauce; stir to thoroughly combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished noodles topped with the seasoned eggs and as much of the togarashi as you’d like. Enjoy!
