Squash stands in for rice in this remake of the traditional Spanish dish. You can use butternut squash or yellow squash — we recommend spiralizing the veg first, then cutting or pulsing in the food processor to get rice-size pieces. If using yellow squash, cutting it is a safer bet since the veg is so delicate. Check the labels when you are purchasing chorizo as some brands contain sugar.
Quinoa doesn’t have to be relegated to being a base, it can also be a topper! Here, it’s broiled until crisp then sprinkled over the salad.
This textured, complex salad is lightly dressed with our sweet and pungent Russian dressing, but feel free to add a little more if you like. Fennel gives it a gentle licorice note, while the Parmesan adds a satisfying umami touch. Don’t skip the Crispy Quinoa Topper, it adds a crunch that you won’t want to miss.
This recipe features black rice – a good source of fiber and antioxidants – and more veggies than the fried rice you’ll find in a takeout container. Cooking can dampen the benefits of probiotics, so a bit of uncooked kimchi is added as a boost just before serving.
Mint gives this recipe a wonderful freshness and simply seasoned chicken bumps up the protein content, making this a filling main dish.
Pulsing cauliflower in your food processor turns the veggie into a versatile rice substitute that’s lower in calories and carbs than rice. Here, we sauté it with Indian spices and serve with crispy chickpeas and a rich curry sauce.
Asparagus is a rich source of the B-vitamin folate (also known as vitamin B9), a water-soluble vitamin that is key for red blood cell formation and the prevention of anemia. Folate also supports DNA synthesis and repair as well as nerve function.
No beet goes to waste in this sweet salad that combines warm beets and candied grapefruit zest. Wild rice and chopped almonds add bite and pull the dish together.
