Artichoke-Scrambled Eggs Benedict Menu Artichoke-Scrambled Eggs Benedict Menu
Roasted artichoke bottoms stand in for English muffins in this quick yet elegant supper, saving calories while adding filling fiber. Look for them near other canned vegetables; if unavailable, use two 14-ounce cans artichoke hearts. For a vegetarian option, substitute roasted mushrooms for the pancetta.
Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza Menu Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza Menu
Topping the hot-out-of-the-oven crust with fresh greens and diced tomatoes gives this white pizza a summery twist, while the little bit of prosciutto and fontina cheese make it taste like a splurge.
Asian-Style Grilled Tofu With Greens Menu Asian-Style Grilled Tofu With Greens Menu
Here's a dish that will turn you into a tofu-and-greens lover! Try Asian greens (tatsoi, mizuna and/or pea shoots) packaged as a salad mix; their slightly bitter flavors stand up well to this aromatic, vinegary dressing. We use carrot juice in the dressing for a touch of sweetness—look for it in the produce section of the supermarket.
Autumn Chicken Stew Menu Autumn Chicken Stew Menu
This simple chicken stew stars three of fall's best crops—apples, carrots and parsnips. Serve with toasted whole-grain baguette and a glass of white wine.
Baby Greens With Spicy Mediterranean Vinaigrette Menu Baby Greens With Spicy Mediterranean Vinaigrette Menu
Watching your weight doesn't mean you're stuck with Spartan salads. This one feels positively indulgent, with sweet-tart cranberries, smoky cheese, crunchy croutons and a spicy-sweet dressing.
Baja Butternut Squash Soup Menu Baja Butternut Squash Soup Menu
This silky-smooth butternut soup gets a hit of spice from chipotle, cloves and cumin. It's perfect when you're craving something warm and creamy (and you'll swear it's made with real cream, though there's nary a drop). Adapted from Chef Jesús González, La Cocina Que Canta at Rancho La Puerta.
Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas Menu Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas Menu
The smoky mushroom filling in this quesadilla is reminiscent of pulled pork, but with a fraction of the calories.
Beef & Bean Chile Verde Menu Beef & Bean Chile Verde Menu
Chile Verde, usually a slow-cooked stew of pork, jalapenos and tomatillos, becomes an easy weeknight meal with quick-cooking lean ground beef and store-bought green salsa. It's even more delicious a day later and freezes well; make a double batch and store in single-serving portions for easy lunches to go.
