Tofu and Rice Veggie Bowl

Did you know that black rice is packed with antioxidants? Delicious, too, especially topped with crispy tofu and an addictive miso ginger dressing.

Spicy Turkey and Zucchini Burger

This is no ordinary burger. It’s adapted from a recipe by the famous Yotam Ottolenghi and boasts his signature Middle Eastern flavors. On the side try these roasted sweet potato “fries, which are excellent for lapping up any yogurt sauce off your plate.

Steak Salad

Steak cooked the way the Italians do! Grilled, sliced, and piled onto a bed of lightly dressed peppery greens. If outdoor grilling isn’t a possibility this time of year, cook your steak under the broiler or in an oil-slicked skillet or grill pan.
