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.

A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium. For those chefs following ADA guidelines, it is recommended that no additional salt be added to this recipe when prepared and for chefs to skip all salting steps of a recipe.

In this Japanese-style dish, flaky tilapia fillets get bold flavor and a hint of crunchy texture from a coating of togarashi—a staple of the cuisine that highlights poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more. For cooling contrast, we’re topping it with crisp marinated vegetables, then drizzling it all with an irresistible combo of creamy mayo and citrusy ponzu sauce.

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

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Medium dice the cucumbers. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. Combine in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and half the ponzu sauce (you will have extra).

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

In a small pot, combine the rice, chopped garlic, 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. Stir in the mirin. Cover to keep warm.

Marinate the vegetables:
3 Marinate the vegetables:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the sugar and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved. Add to the bowl of diced cucumbers and peppers; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the fish & serve your dish:
4 Cook the fish & serve your dish:

Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the togarashi. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked fish, marinated vegetables, and ponzu mayo. Garnish with the remaining togarashi. Enjoy!
