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.

From the Test Kitchen

No need to call for takeout, chefs. Tonight it’s all about easy, gourmet Chinese fare, prepared right at home. We’re coating cod fillets in rice flour, searing them, and then glazing the crispy fish in a delicious, sweet and sour mixture of soy sauce, sweet chili sauce and fresh lime juice. Those same flavors also brighten up our hearty fried rice, cooked with egg and seasonal vegetables like carrot and tatsoi (a Chinese cabbage variety with mild, tender leaves).

tips & techniques
Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Set aside in a warm place.

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and mince the ginger. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut off and discard the tatsoi roots; roughly chop. Peel the carrots; thinly slice into rounds. Crack the eggs into a bowl; beat until smooth. Quarter the lime. To make the sweet and sour sauce, in a bowl, combine the soy sauce, sweet chili sauce and the juice of all 4 lime wedges; whisk to combine.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the ginger, tatsoi, carrots and white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.

Finish the rice:
4 Finish the rice:

Add the eggs to the pan of vegetables; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined and the eggs are just cooked through. Add the cooked rice and half the sweet and sour sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, or until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and set aside in a warm place. Wipe out the pan.

Cook & glaze the cod:
5 Cook & glaze the cod:

Place the rice flour on a plate. Pat the cod dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Coat 1 side of each seasoned fillet in the rice flour (tapping off any excess). In the pan used to finish the rice, heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the fillets, coated sides down. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until golden brown. Flip and add the remaining sweet and sour sauce. Cook, occasionally spooning the sauce over the fillets, 2 to 3 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from heat.
