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.
Diabetes Friendly
Our diabetes friendly offering allows you to enjoy wholesome options while adhering to the guidelines set forth by the nutrition experts at our partner at the American Diabetes Association. 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. See nutrition information on your current page or at blueapron.com for sodium “as packaged”.

From the Test Kitchen

In this rustic Italian recipe, pork chops are generously coated with a blend of herbs beloved in the cuisine like fennel seeds, rosemary, and sage, then served with an irresistible side of cannellini beans, whose naturally creamy texture is enhanced with a bit of crème fraîche, plus crushed red pepper for a pleasant kick of heat.

This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

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

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Combine in a bowl. Roughly chop the capers and peppers. Combine in a separate bowl. 

Cook the pork:
2 Cook the pork:

Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

Cook the beans:
3 Cook the beans:

Meanwhile, in a small pot, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the drained beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt, pepper, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat; stir in the crème fraîche. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm. 

Cook the kale:
4 Cook the kale:

While the pork rests, heat the pan of reserved fond on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared garlic and kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the demi-glace (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat and stir in the vinegar. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Make the relish & serve your dish:
5 Make the relish & serve your dish:

Add 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil to the bowl of chopped capers and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Slice the rested pork crosswise. Serve the sliced pork with the cooked beans and cooked kale. Top the pork with the relish. Enjoy!
