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.

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.

In this Thai-style dish, tender bites of shrimp, chickpeas, and zucchini are cooked alongside a flavorful mix of sweet coconut milk, spicy curry paste, and savory dried shiitake mushrooms (plus the flavorful water they rehydrate in). We’re serving it with fluffy jasmine rice, which is perfect for soaking up the curry’s vibrant flavors.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

 Place the mushrooms in a medium bowl; add 1/2 cup of hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Wash and dry the zucchini; quarter lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

In a small pot, combine the rice and 1 cup 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.

Brown the zucchini:
3 Brown the zucchini:

While the rice cooks, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini pieces in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Start the curry & cook the shrimp:
4 Start the curry & cook the shrimp:

While the rice continues to cook, reserving the mushroom water, transfer the rehydrated mushrooms to a cutting board; roughly chop. In the same pan, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped mushrooms and garlic and sliced shallot. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add as much of the curry paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the chickpeas, coconut milk (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), and reserved mushroom water. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Add the seasoned shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the liquid is thickened and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. 

Finish the curry & serve your dish:
5 Finish the curry & serve your dish:

Add the browned zucchini to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and heated through. Turn off the heat and stir in the vinegar. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished curry with the cooked rice. Enjoy!
