Cutting fish into escalopes (thin slices)—as the famous Troisgros restaurant family in France does—facilitates fast cooking and delicate searing. Serve with sautéed veggies such as Soy-Glazed Vegetables (find this recipe and other recipes here). Use white pepper on the fish for an earthy flavor with less heat. Black pepper adds specks of color and a hotter taste.
We turned this popular appetizer into a quick, diet-friendly dinner solution for two. It's a fresh, low-calorie alternative to takeout. In place of bottled peanut sauce, you can instead try our Miso-Chili-Garlic Sauce.
Just in time for fall, this dish combines juicy tomatoes with hearty whole-wheat pasta, sausage, and kale. Try Bionaturae or Barilla whole-wheat spaghetti; both have a light color and mild wheat flavor.
Start with canned fire-roasted tomatoes to give the soup some smoky depth. Serve with sliced toasted sourdough and steamed broccoli from your list.
Love sushi rolls, but feel intimidated by the rolling technique? Then sushi sandwiches--actually a traditional Japanese dish called onigirazu--will be right up your alley. They require simply layering ingredients onto a piece of nori (seaweed) then folding the nori around to form a packet.
This classic movie theater treat has taken on a sweetly spiced persona just in time for cozy nights during cool weather. The popcorn is coated in a pumpkin maple sauce that forms a crispy, candy-like crust on the outside of popcorn for a glossy finish. This method includes a tried-and-true method that involves heating the oil prior to adding the popcorn and removing it from the heat for a short break and placing back on the heat. This yields evenly-popped popcorn with no burnt or un-popped kernels.
