Walnut-Horseradish Cheese in Endive Petals

Walnut-Horseradish Cheese in Endive Petals

Cottage cheese stands in for the thick, fresh cheese used in Austria to make a piquant horseradish spread that’s usually served with chilled white wine. We’ve paired it with endive leaves, walnuts, and cranberries for a festive look and taste.

Mini Sesame-Cucumber Hand Rolls

Mini Sesame-Cucumber Hand Rolls

Easy to make and eat, hand rolls, or temaki, make a party-friendly sushi option. These are seasoned with gomashio (a Japanese condiment made with toasted sesame seeds and salt) and sushi seasoning (a mix of vinegar, sugar, and salt). Serve with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger.

Caldo Verde Stuffed Potatoes

Caldo verde, a soup of collard greens and potatoes that is a traditional favorite in Portugal, inspired this recipe. Soy sausage gives the filling a kick.

Tandoori Broccoli Jacket Potatoes

Tandoori Broccoli Stuffed Potatoes

Broccoli is such a beloved baked potato topping that we wanted to include it somewhere—only without the usual Cheddar cheese. Here, it gets spiced up with a prepared tandoori marinade you can find in any well-stocked supermarket.

Berry-Apricot Salsa

Berry-Apricot Salsa

Masa Harina Cream Cheese Dough

This rustic dough has the delectable flavor of corn tortillas. If fresh or dried masa harina is not available, increase the flour to 1 1/4 cups—the dough will still be supple and delicious without the toasted corn flavor. To shape crusts that are perfectly uniform and round, use a small salad plate as a guide to trim your rolled dough. For a more rustic look, leave the rough edges.

Tunisian Eggplant Tacos

Serve this filling in warmed flour tortillas, which are surprisingly similar in taste and texture to some Tunisian flat breads.

Sparkling Lemonade

Sparkling Lemonade

The acidity of the lemon juice slows the yeast activity for this soda, so start it about a week before you plan to serve it.
