  1. 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 […]

  2. 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 […]

  3. 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 […]

  4. Healthy Recipe, Broiled Salmon with Romesco Sauce

    Romesco is a vivid and versatile Spanish sauce made of roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, almonds, olive oil, and a few other bright flavoring that’s as good for you as it is delicious. It’s an exceptional match for fish, as this simple dish adapted from “Watermelon and Red Birds” shows.  Save the extra sauce to liven […]

  5. Healthy Recipe, Poached Chicken Salad

    Chicken salad often conjures images of that ladies’ tearoom standby of yesteryear: compact mounds of blandness bound with mayo, flecked with sweet pickle bits, and perched atop iceberg lettuce leaves. This modern rendition, adapted from “Salads Are More Than Leaves” by Elena Silcock, radically departs from that stereotype. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are first poached in a […]

  6. Healthy Recipe, Lamb Chops

    Dainty, tender rib chops command the kind of prices that put them in the special-occasion category. But don’t overlook the cuts from the shoulder, which also deliver big on flavor for a fraction of the price. These chops are plenty tender with no more than a seasoning of salt and pepper and quick sear. A […]

  7. Healthy Recipe, Sesame Chicken Meatballs

    Tahini, that rich-tasting paste of ground sesame seeds mostly associated with hummus, is blended with soy sauce and a few other Asian staples you very well might already have in your pantry or fridge. A package of ground chicken, a head of broccoli, and a splash of olive oil are the only other essentials. If […]

  8. Healthy Recipe, Chia Pudding

    Chia seeds have been called a “superfood” — and for good reason. These tiny seeds are packed with protein, fiber, minerals, and omega-three fatty acids, and have been touted for all kinds of health benefits: lowering cholesterol, balancing blood sugar, controlling hunger, even boosting exercise performance. When added to liquid and allowed to soak for […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Lamb Meatballs with Zucchini and Basil Yogurt

    Most homemade meatball recipes owe their distinction to an array of herbs, spices, and various chopped bits of this and that. This rendition, adapted from “Food52 Big Little Recipes,” significantly reduces the mess-making. The trick is to blend assertive-flavored ground lamb with a substantial amount of water-soaked breadcrumbs, which give them an extra-crusty exterior while keeping the […]

  10. Healthy Recipe, Frittata

    The open-faced Italian omelet better known as frittata is an easy technique to master, and once you have the basic formula down the possibilities are endless. Here, a layer of thinly sliced, well-seasoned potatoes mixed with handfuls of fresh spinach form a crispy nutrient-rich crust to support the quiche-like filling — no pastry required! Sliced […]
