Portobello Chard Sauté with Whole Wheat Pasta

Highly nutritious and much prized, Swiss chard is not only tasty but surprisingly beautiful, whether dark green or wearing stalks of many colors as the rainbow variety. It’s also not from Switzerland at all, but keep its secret and enjoy. The flavor of the chard, halfway between spinach and collards, sets off against the nutty whole wheat pasta and meaty mushrooms nicely, and the sautéed stalks add extra dash of fiber and flavor.

Black Bean and Salsa Breakfast Egg Burrito

The dark, rich and smoky flavor of black bean spread, the zing of jalapeño and lime-accented fresh tomato salsa, and the comfort food that is scrambled eggs, all wrapped together. Here’s a combination of individual recipes that will be welcome in any cook’s repertoire. Together they are a spectacular hand-held meal. The black bean spread provides essential fiber, protein and minerals. Warm the tortillas in the oven or on a dry skillet briefly to bring back just-made freshness.

Stove Top Cinnamon Cranberry Sauce

It might be tempting to buy that perennial can of jellied cranberries—there might be one left over from Thanksgivings past in your cupboard right now—but there’s really no comparison between that and this handmade supper trimming. Just watching the magic as it jells might be enough. And don’t limit its uses to a turkey dinner or leftover sandwich; the tart character of cranberry sauce lends itself to experimentation. Spoon it over yogurt for a morning pick-me-up; mix it into a pound cake recipe; use it as a topping for burgers or waffles or add it to ketchup for a tangy dip for barbecue.

Simple Catalan Tomato Sauce for Fish

Barcelona is known for architecture, late-night entertainment, and food that is simple, fresh and very, very good. The Catalan diet depends on the staples of north-east Spain; olives, plump tomatoes, and some of the best olive oil in the world. This simple but very flavorful (and healthy) tomato sauce will complement any firm, white fish, adding a savory, tangy dimension to what might otherwise be a bland dish. Go the extra step and use the best, smooth-tasting olive oil you can find!
