  1. Healthy Recipe, Roast Chicken Thighs with Spiced Cauliflower, Cranberries, and Herbs

    Roast chicken seems to cry for potatoes, rice, or some other starchy side. But cauliflower can stand in as a hearty nutrient-packed companion for a fraction of the calories and carbs. In this recipe adapted from Ruby Tandoh’s “Cook as You Are” (Knopf, $35), the florets roast in a pan with skin-on thighs rubbed with […]

  2. Healthy Recipe, Tuscan-Style Shrimp with White Beans

    This classic Mediterranean combo is as simple and healthy as it is delicious. A green salad and a loaf of crusty bread are all you need to turn this 30-minute one-skillet meal into a company feast. Variations abound; this one is adapted from “Milk Street: Cook What You Have” by Christopher Kimball (Voracious, $35). Serves […]

  3. Healthy Recipe, Beef & Broccoli

    Even those of us leaning more toward a plant-based diet these days feel the need to give in to our carnivore cravings now and then. This recipe, adapted from one in Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Fast” (Harvest, $40), balances that iron-rich animal protein with an ample quantity of hearty, vitamin-loaded broccoli in one quick, […]

  4. Healthy Recipe, Skillet Shrimp Scampi with Corn, Tomatoes, and Peas

    The classic sauce that makes shrimp scampi so sinfully delicious consists of butter, garlic, and wine, which meld in the pan with the juices from the shrimp while they cook. Quite often, it arrives on a platter in a mountain of pasta, with plenty of crusty bread for sopping up every buttery drop. This recipe […]

  5. Healthy Recipe, Yogurt, and Frozen Berry Breakfast Parfait

    Use frozen blueberries, raspberries, or cherries here. All are packed with flavor and nutrients. And they begin to thaw to a sorbet-like consistency almost immediately. Combining them with thick, creamy Greek yogurt gives you the sensation of eating ice cream — plus protein and calcium. Choose plain so you can control the sweetness. Make it […]

  6. Healthy Recipe, Pork with Blueberries and Rosemary

    Here’s an impressive centerpiece for a dinner party that’s low in fat and high in flavor yet easy and economical enough to serve on any weeknight. It’s lightly adapted from one in “The Red Truck Bakery Farmhouse Cookbook: Sweet and Savory Comfort Food” by Brian Noyes (Potter, $28), which calls for pork tenderloin. But if […]

  7. Healthy Recipe, Watermelon-Coconut Cooler

    Coconut water is a more flavorful alternative to plain water that’s also loaded with potassium and other essential nutrients. Watermelon is another hydration superstar with these added benefits. Here they’re blended with a splash of citrus into one all-natural rejuvenating drink with just the right balance of tart and sweet. Top it off with a splash of […]

  8. Healthy Recipe, Mediterranean Tuna and White Bean Salad

    When it’s too hot to cook and you’re not in the mood to dine out, a couple of pantry staples can be your salvation. Dump a can of tuna and one of white beans into a bowl with sliced onions, toss with good olive oil and a splash of vinegar or squeeze of citrus, season […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Chickpea-Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

    After an intense workout, you’ve earned a little indulgence. That reward need not come in the form of empty calories, however. Consider these rich-tasting, just-sweet-enough cookies adapted from “The Miller’s Daughter: Unusual Flours & Heritage Grains”  by Emma Zimmerman ($29.99). Chickpea flour, now available in most supermarkets, replaces most of the refined wheat flour here, adding […]

  10. Healthy Recipe, Peach Salad

    In Mexico, unripe mangoes and papayas are commonly sliced and sprinkled with lime juice and chile salt and sold as street snacks. In Atlanta, chef Eddie Hernandez, a native of Monterrey, Mexico, and co-owner of Taqueria del Sol restaurants, finds that this technique works equally well with rock-hard peaches that are crisp, tart, and full […]
