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.

From the Test Kitchen

The star of this dish is our togarashi seasoning—a vibrant blend that highlights paprika, poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more—which lends bold flavor to the medley of zucchini, carrots, and cabbage we’re serving underneath juicy seared chicken. We’re bringing it all together with a bright, savory mix of citrusy ponzu and creamy ranch dressing.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Place in a large bowl; add half the vinegar and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a separate bowl; add the remaining vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Medium dice the zucchini. Peel the carrots. Halve lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Peel and finely chop the ginger. In a bowl, combine the ponzu sauce and ranch dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

2 Cook the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F

3 Cook & finish the vegetables:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced zucchini and carrot pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped ginger and half the togarashi; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of marinated cabbage; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
