For a warm, comforting salad to devour during the chilly months, this hearty kale situation is just what you need. Brimming with sweet apples, hearty wheatberries, toasted walnuts, and a hefty crumbling of goat cheese, it has all the necessary components for a filling and flavorful salad. Double the vinaigrette and save some to douse on roasted veggies or meats.
Mild-flavored, flaky cod is delicious with this crispy topping. Chewy English muffins make for divinely crunchy breadcrumbs, but feel free to use any odds and ends you have in your kitchen--toasted sourdough and pecans are a delicious combo. Serve with lightly dressed greens.
What could be easier than pasta for dinner? Cooking the pasta right in the sauce, saving time and cleanup and infusing the noodles with more flavor. The pasta is also endlessly adaptable, thanks to a short list of ingredients that are likely already in your pantry. Change up the spinach for any vegetables you have on hand (such as sliced zucchini and mushrooms), or add leftover diced cooked chicken thighs or cooked and crumbled sausage. We’ve happily embraced whole-wheat spaghetti as an alternative white pasta; it works especially well in this one-pot application.
If broccoli rabe is a bit bitter for your family or if you have trouble finding it, chopped broccoli would be a delicious substitute. Serve with extra lemon for more zip.
Fresh salmon in its simplest form, roasted with salt and pepper. Serve it over a kale salad with citrus dressing.
Fresh raspberries give the classic s'more a fresh summertime flavor. This after-dinner treat can be made under the broiler or by the campfire.
