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.

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.

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.

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.

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional pub dish. It’s made with lamb cubes, some vegetables, and a tomato-based sauce and topped with mashed potatoes and cheese.
