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.
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.

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

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges, separating the layers. Halve the grapes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic.

Cook the farro:
2 Cook the farro:

Add the farro to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

Roast the vegetables & grapes:
3 Roast the vegetables & grapes:

Meanwhile, place the halved brussels sprouts, onion wedges, and halved grapes on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Cook the chicken:
4 Cook the chicken:

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za’atar to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 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.

Make the pan sauce:
5 Make the pan sauce:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat.

Finish & serve your dish:
6 Finish & serve your dish:
