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.

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.
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.

Prepare & start the carrot fries
1 Prepare & start the carrot fries

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise, then halve crosswise. In a bowl, combine the carrot pieces, all but 1 teaspoon of the spice blend, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Reserving the bowl, transfer to one side of the sheet pan  and arrange in an even layer. Roast 7 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the dipping sauce

Meanwhile, thinly slice the cucumber into rounds; place in a bowl. Add the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper; set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, remaining spice blend, and  1 teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Roast the peppers & carrot fries
3 Roast the peppers & carrot fries

In the reserved bowl, combine the peppers and 1 teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Carefully transfer to the  other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted carrots and arrange in an even layer. Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Reserving the sheet pan, carefully transfer the roasted peppers and carrot fries to a serving dish. Discard the foil.

4 Make the filling

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the turkey; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Add the chopped garlic and tomato paste; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add the barbecue sauce and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 8 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened and the turkey is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

5 Toast the buns & serve your dish

Place the halved buns, cut sides up, on the reserved sheet pan. Toast in the oven 3 to 4 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and transfer to a work surface. Assemble the sandwiches using the toasted buns, filling (you may have extra filling), and marinated cucumber (discarding any liquid). Serve the sandwiches with the roasted peppers and carrot fries and dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
