This hearty vegetarian soup is loaded with fiber and plant-based protein. For a bigger nutrient boost, stir in one 10-oz bag of baby spinach, kale or arugula during the last 20 minutes of cooking. Thawed frozen broccoli, cauliflower or winter squash are other good last-minute add-ins.
This salad is bright, slightly sweet, pleasantly bitter and even a touch spicy – all in all, a great accompaniment to the rich flavors of roasted turkey.
