Quinoa-Cilantro Tabbouleh with Flake Salt
The delicate crunch of flake salt is a beautiful finishing touch in this quinoa riff on tabbouleh; you can use easy-to-find Maldon flake salt or--for real drama--try black flake salt such as The Meadow's Black Diamond. A splash of citrus bitters wakes up all the flavors; if you can't find lemon bitters, try orange or grapefruit.

A bowl of gorgeous grits and hearty mushrooms makes for a delicious and filling dinner. Add parsley for a pop of color.

Roasted Fennel with Rosemary Breadcrumbs
Instead of roasted root vegetables or Brussels sprouts, try roasted fennel. Fennel has licorice notes that mellow in the oven, becoming slightly sweet. A splash of cider vinegar at the end brightens the dish.
Roasted Fennel with Rosemary Breadcrumbs Recipe
Use your favorite citrus for this refreshing salad. We love the colorful mix and flavor combination of two navel oranges, one blood orange, and Ruby Red grapefruit. No matter what fruit you choose, buy an extra navel orange to juice for the dressing.

Rye and Butternut Squash Dressing
Cube the bread a day or two ahead and leave it out on the counter to dry, so it will fully absorb the flavors of the dressing. (If you forget, you can dry it in a 375° oven for a few minutes.) For a moister dressing, use the larger amount of broth. This makes a good main dish for vegans (use kosher rye, which excludes dairy). But it's good with sausage too; add about 1 pound, casings removed, browned and crumbled.
