Healthy Turmeric Chicken Stew

Rating: Unrated

This is one of my favorite 30-minute weeknight recipes. Turmeric (curcuma) is a bright yellow spice primarily found in India and Indonesia, and is one of the main ingredients in curry. It adds an exotic color and flavor to any dish.

This is the perfect romantic dinner for two when served with an Oregon Pinot Noir, crusty bread, wild rice, and salad.

Heart Healthy Blueberry Smoothie

This is a fantastic smoothie if you're searching for something that is heart-healthy and antioxidant-rich!

Roasted Iowa Root Vegetables

A sworn lover of parsnips, this is but one more way to fix them. The use of celery root, a.k.a. celeriac, was an accident since I thought I was buying a rutabaga but it was an excellent addition. I've served this to company with rave reviews and it's fairly healthy if you use the oil sparingly. Great way to enjoy fall and winter produce.

Vegetable Birdseed Pilaf

A savory vegetarian pilaf of millet and vegetables, flavored with rosemary and wine. My daughter loved that it was made with 'birdseed' and she gave it the silly title. Serve with additional fresh grated Parmesan.

Whole Rice and Lentils (Majadara)

Rating: Unrated

One of my 'Israeli' recipes that I've adapted for whole rice (that in my opinion needs more seasoning). Good as a whole meal or as a side dish. Freezes fairly well, too.

White Beans and Peppers

Any sweet pepper will work in this side dish, but I love the delicate spiciness of the long, pointy gypsy pepper. I use organic beans, and serve alongside a veggie burger.

This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

Hearty lentil soup, chock full of veggies and very yummy. Serve with warm cornbread.

Roasted Vegetables

A casserole dish of seasonal vegetables that is so easy to prepare. It can be made a day ahead - just reheat before serving. Lemon juice can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, and you can use baking potatoes if you don't have any Yukon Golds on hand.
