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. The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
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.
Mediterranean Diet
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.

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Drain the tofu, then place on a paper towel-lined plate. Place several layers of paper towels on top, then place a heavy-bottomed pot (or pan) on top of the paper towels. Set aside to release the excess liquid at least 10 minutes.

2 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the vegetables

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut into small florets. Quarter the lime. Small dice the cucumber. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.In a bowl, combine the diced cucumber, sliced radishes, mirin, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and soy glaze

Cook the rice
3 Cook the rice

Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, 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.

Roast the broccoli
4 Roast the broccoli

Meanwhile, place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Top with the juice of 2 lime wedges and carefully stir to coat.

5 Prepare & coat the tofu

Meanwhile, transfer the pressed tofu to a cutting board. Cut the tofu in half horizontally, then halve each piece crosswise. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Crack the egg into a bowl; add the soy sauce and beat until smooth. Place the flour and breadcrumbs on two separate large plates. Season each with salt and pepper. Season the breadcrumbs with all but a pinch of the togarashi. Working one piece at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned tofu in the seasoned flour (tapping off any excess), then in the egg-soy sauce mixture (letting any excess drip off), then in the seasoned breadcrumbs (pressing to adhere). Transfer to a separate plate.

6 Cook the tofu & serve your dish

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of breadcrumbs sizzles immediately when added, add the coated tofu in an even layer. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of oil before flipping), or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately season with salt. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked tofu, roasted broccoli, and marinated vegetables (including any liquid). Drizzle the tofu with the soy mayo. Garnish with the remaining togarashi. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
