This version of the Passover classic is packed with the bright flavors of pistachios, sweet apricots and pomegranate. Charoset is traditionally served with matzoh, but it’s also delicious as a condiment in sandwiches or as a filling for endive leaves.

Use this light and delicious salad as a sandwich filling or serve alongside slices of fresh mango. Add more veggies if you like: diced red bell pepper or thinly sliced cooked asparagus are colorful additions.

Elegant and comforting, these fresh strawberry scones are ideal for spring brunches and Mother’s Day gifting. We love the herb-flecked lemon glaze on the scones, but feel free to skip it for an equally delicious traditional treat.

Baking halibut (or any fish for that matter) in parchment paper packets is a fantastic way to create a tender, moist fillet with no added fat. Serve over a simple whole grain pilaf or alongside steamed spinach.

Try blending up an easy batch of this mango, cherry and sake drink for your next cocktail hour.

Enjoy this simple vegetarian version of classic Spanish paella. We added lima beans and peas for extra flavor and protein. Topping with grilled tempeh would provide an even bigger protein boost. Rice in paella should be al dente, so take care not to add too much...

Gluten-free flours combine with apples, carrots, zucchini, raisins and walnuts in these satisfying and nutritious muffins. You can also try our Whole Grain Morning Glory Muffins...

Traditionally, smoked or fresh southern pork sausage, known as Andouille, is the centerpiece of this Cajun-inspired dish. Pinto beans, onions and green peppers get a kick from fire roasted tomatoes and green chiles in this deceptively simple yet filling meal.
