What comes in each delivery?
Blue Apron meals deliveries contain all the seasonal produce and specialty ingredients you need to create unique, flavorful meals for the week. In each box, we’ll send detailed recipe cards with step-by-step instructions to make dinner easy and delicious. Just bring salt, pepper, olive oil and an appetite!
Additionally, our team works hard to carefully package each ingredient, ensuring that your delivery arrives ready to enjoy.
Can Blue Apron accommodate food allergies?
All of our ingredients are packaged in a facility that also processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. Because of this, we don’t recommend ordering Blue Apron if you have a severe food allergy.
We also provide allergen information on our nutrition labels for each recipe, which are available online up to 1.5 weeks in advance. We also recommend checking the ingredient labels in your box for the most up-to-date allergen information, as we occasionally need to replace an item with an alternative to ensure high quality.
Do you provide nutritional and caloric information?
We always want to help our chefs make informed decisions when cooking with us, so we provide nutritional information for each recipe up to 1.5 weeks in advance. These labels include the recipe’s ingredient list, nutrient breakdown, daily values and allergen information.
Because every chef’s style of cooking differs, the caloric values of prepared meals may vary slightly depending on any added ingredients (such as olive oil) used in the process.
Do you offer vegetarian recipes?
We’re happy to offer 3-4 vegetarian recipes every week on our Signature for 2 meal plan.
When you select our Signature for 2 plan, you’ll be given the option to select 2 or 3 of the vegetarian recipes available each week.
Additionally, we''re now offering vegetarian Blue Apron x Beyond Meat® recipes on our Signature plans! Please note that although the Beyond Burger patties themselves are 100% plant-based, our Beyond Burger™ recipes may include ingredients that are not plant-based (such as cheese). Visit your Upcoming page to see recipe details and add them to your box.
If you currently have a Blue Apron account, you can head over to the ‘Dietary Selections’ section of your Account Settings and check the ‘We’re Vegetarian’ box. We’ll automatically default you to vegetarian recipes each week, but you’ll still be able to customize your menu. Please note, we’re unable to accommodate individual food allergies.
At this time, a fully vegetarian box is only only available on our Signature for 2 plan.
How does Blue Apron define a vegetarian recipe?
We always want our chefs to have a variety of choices each week regardless of dietary preferences, so we provide three vegetarian recipe options on our weekly Signature Plan for 2 menu. Blue Apron vegetarian recipes are made with fruits and vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds and are created with or without dairy products,* honey and/or eggs for you to enjoy as part of your vegetarian preference.
*Select artisanal cheeses may contain animal derived rennet.
What are Premium Recipes?
Blue Apron Premium Recipes are recipes that introduce home cooks to specialty protein combinations, advanced culinary techniques, and unique flavor twists. These recipes deliver the experience customers know and love from Blue Apron, with an added emphasis on teaching home cooks how to create more elaborate meals.
Each week, one Premium recipe will be featured on both our Signature for 2 and Signature for 4 menus. Pricing for Blue Apron Premium meals will vary between $14.99 and $19.99 per serving on our Two-Serving menu and between $13.99 and $19.99 per serving on our Four-Serving menu, depending on the recipe.
Look for the ‘Premium’ badge on your Upcoming page to see our scheduled Premium recipes for the coming weeks!
How can I learn more about your Beyond Meat® recipes?
We’re excited to partner with Beyond Meat® to feature their products on our Signature meal plans!
Quality and discovery will always be central to the Blue Apron experience. We know a growing number of customers are interested in plant-based proteins, whether as an alternative to meat, a desire to explore a new ingredient or an opportunity to make more sustainable food choices.
We’ll consistently feature Beyond Meat products on our Signature menus and look forward to collecting feedback from our customers. We’ll still offer our three usual vegetarian recipes on our Signature for 2 plan, with the addition of one Blue Apron x Beyond Meat recipe on featured weeks, and at least four selections that feature traditional proteins, such as pork, chicken, seafood, or shellfish.
