    Next time you’re stuck on what to bring to a potluck, offer to bring this salad.

Loaded with protein, fiber, […]

  2. Healthy Recipe, Korean-Glazed Tofu and Broccoli 

    This stands an excellent chance of winning over even the most die-hard carnivore. Tofu is first cut into planks, then patted dry and dredged in cornstarch and roasted at a high temperature to ensure an extra-crispy coating. It gets a savory-sweet, umami-loaded sauce made with the Korean condiment called gochujang (found in Asian sections of […]

  3. Healthy Recipe, Mango Shrimp

    Mangoes are low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins A and C, and other nutrients. In this recipe, adapted from one in “Milk Street 365,” mango plays a prominent role in a quick entrée that tastes like summer. Chunks of fresh or frozen fruit are added to a panful of sauteed aromatics and punctuated […]

  4. Healthy Recipe, Spanakopita Dip

    Triangles of the traditional savory Greek pie known as spanakopita are familiar at fancy cocktail parties.

This recipe, adapted from one in “Big Dip Energy,” blends the spinach and feta filling with Greek yogurt and […]

  5. Healthy Recipe, Charred Zucchini and Scallion Pasta 

    It’s amazing how much depth of flavor can be achieved from basic ingredients with a few tweaks in the cooking, as Yasmin Fahr demonstrates in this recipe from “Cook Simply, Live Fully.” Here, summer squash, which tends to be bland, is charred first in a dry skillet with thin slivers of lemon and scallions. Olive […]

  6. Healthy Recipe, Spiced Meatballs

    Here’s a fun idea for your next outdoor get-together that’s more exciting than burgers and hot dogs and has more nutritional value. It’s adapted from a recipe inspired by a Moroccan chef on the French Riviera in Rosa Jackson’s “Nicoise: Market-Inspired Cooking from France’s Sunniest City.” Made with ground lamb or beef, the cumin-spiced meatballs […]

  7. Healthy Recipe, Indian Okra

    Okra is a staple of the American South: fried, pickled, and stirred into gumbos. It’s also the primary component of a popular North Indian dish called bhindi (okra) masala, the inspiration behind this recipe lightly adapted from William Stark Dissen’s “Thoughtful Cooking: Recipes in the New South.” Bursting with bright curry spices and fresh herbs, […]

  8. Healthy Recipe: Corn Salad with Cherry Tomatoes  

    At its height of freshness, local sweet corn is delicious straight off the cob. Here, those kernels are tossed together with other summery ingredients and a simple dressing of olive oil and lime juice for a colorful, refreshing salad that’s portable for picnics and potlucks and infinitely adaptable. This recipe is lightly adapted from one […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Chicken Thighs with Limes 

    Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are a low-fat, low-cost protein source that’s convenient to have on hand. But without the skin and bones to keep them moist and hold them together, they can use some extra TLC in the prep. Here’s one fast and easy idea worth keeping in your back pocket, adapted from a recipe […]

  10. Healthy Recipe, Vegan Four-Bean Chili

    It’s hard to believe a pot of chili could be filling and flavorful without a speck of meat or added fat.
