Save yourself some time in the kitchen and craft a delicious dish with an ingredient that's already sitting in your fridge.
Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend of savory dried herbs like oregano or thyme, and earthy spices like cumin, coriander and sumac. Here, we use it as rub over salmon and roast it for an incredibly flavorful recipe that your family will want to keep on repeat.
Squash stands in for lasagna noodles in this hearty, vegan-friendly dish that makes both ricotta and béchamel out of cauliflower.
Maple-roasted pears and cashews adorn this hearty kale salad with chicken and a rich buttermilk dressing.
Our peri peri-roasted chicken employs Portuguese cooking techniques but uses African ingredients. You'll love the tangy, spicy sauce served alongside sweet potatoes and kale.
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.

To keep your prep quick, here we roast the salmon at the same time as red grapes - and we do it all on one baking sheet for quick cleanup. The cooked fruit gives the salad a sweet-tart tang that balances the richness of the cheese and fish. Sprouts or microgreens make a nice garnish on this dish.
Sweet strudels tend to steal the spotlight, but it's time to take this flaky pastry to the savory side. We've used a store-bought phyllo dough for the easiest prep – look for it in the freezer section of your supermarket. To keep the pastry sheets from drying out and make them easier to handle, cover them with a damp towel when not in use.
A cheesy quinoa crust makes a delicious, higher-protein swap for the traditional flour and butter quiche crust. Swap out the Tuscan kale in the filling for baby kale or spinach if you prefer a milder flavor.
Apple cider and Dijon mustard give this chicken dish the ultimate sweet-and-savory flavor, while a colorful mix of kale, carrots and parsnips makes it extra-hearty and nutritious. To save money, buy skin-on chicken thighs and simply remove the skin yourself.
A traditional English dish, bubble and squeak was created as a way to use up Sunday's mashed potatoes along with just about any other leftover veggies. We put a healthy, Indian-inspired spin on the classic with these potato and kale patties subtly spiced with a blend of ginger and curry powder.
Creamy, zesty and filled with good-for-you greens, these lobster bites are the ultimate summer appetizer or snack. Serve with a warmed all-natural jarred tomato sauce on the side for dipping. For a kick of heat, try adding a pinch of ground cayenne pepper to the mixture.
Millet has a mild, corn-like flavor and fluffy texture that’s perfect for hearty grain bowls. The quick-cooking ancient grain is rich in iron, B-complex vitamins and calcium. If you can’t find it, just double the quinoa. Tuscan kale is much more tender and sweet than common curly kale, which makes it a great candidate for enjoying raw.
This lighter take on chili is made without tomatoes, leaving room for fiber-rich greens. We’ve kept the spices mild to please many palates, but you can easily add more chile powder if you prefer a spicier dish – here at the CE office, we love this meal smothered in hot sauce!
