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.

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 & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Place on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast, flipping halfway through, 23 to 25 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the potatoes roast, peel and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Remove and discard the stems of the collard greens; roughly chop the leaves. Using the flat side of your knife, smash the olives; remove and discard the pits, then roughly chop.

Cook the chicken:
3 Cook the chicken:

While the potatoes continue to roast, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken, skin side down. Cook, occasionally pressing down with a spatula, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Loosely cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Make the sauce:
4 Make the sauce:

Add the sliced onion to the pan of reserved fond; season with salt and pepper. (If the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil.) Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic and collard greens; cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the collard greens are slightly wilted. Add the tomatoes, chopped olives, capers, Italian seasoning, and 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 6 to 8 minutes, or until the collard greens are wilted and the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste.
