North African Shakshuka (Love Shack-shuka)

Shakshuka is a popular breakfast in North Africa and the Middle East. If you don’t have time for a breakfast that takes 30 minutes, try this flavorful and savory dish for dinner. No zucchini? Use bell peppers or eggplant. This recipe is adapted from Melissa Clark's version in The New York Times.

Baked Chicken with Maple Butter Glaze

This scrumptious chicken cooks so quickly because of the high heat and the chicken’s proximity to the oven’s heating element. It’s adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe.

Super Foods Salad

The salad tastes not only super nourishing, but is also bursting with flavor. Boost the flavor even more by adding 4 tsp dried cranberries, 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds or a diced orange. Or choose baby arugula for the greens.

Pear, Ricotta and Pine Nut Cake

The combination of golden raisins, pine nuts and orange zest gives this cake a uniquely Sicilian flair. Keep in mind that those same flavors make a great addition to savory whole-grain rice pilafs as well.

Fresh Tomato Sauce

Try making large batches of this sauce in summer and freezing or canning the excess so that you’ll have fresh, homemade sauce on hand all year long. If good-quality fresh tomatoes are not available, substitute approximately 24 oz good-quality jarred or boxed strained Italian tomatoes.

Classic Meatballs

This recipe calls for 95% lean ground beef, but you can use ground turkey or chicken if you’d like. These meatballs can be added to sauces, soups or other recipes.

Spinach Sautéed in Garlic and Oil

This “recipe” is so simple, but it’s an easy, healthful and tasty way to cook fresh spinach. Vegetables of any kind—cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, potatoes and/or green beans—can be blanched until just tender, and prepared the same way.

Chinese Five-Spice Kale Chips

Chinese five-spice powder is a mixture of five spices: star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Sichuan pepper and fennel. It gives a sweet, salty, sour, bitter and pungent taste to dishes. Don’t have it? Try a simplified Asian three-spice powder: mix equal parts ground cloves, ginger and cinnamon.

Thai-Style Halibut with Mango Relish

The balanced use of “sweet” and “heat” is notable in Thai cuisine. The “heat” in this dish comes from the Thai chile peppers and the “sweet” from mango.

Green Juice Smoothie

This recipe makes a vivid green, fragrant beverage. By whirling the whole vegetables and fruits into a smoothie rather than juice, you’re still getting the full nutritional benefit of each, including all of the fiber.
