Tomatillo Pizza-Dillas

Tomatillo Pizza-dillas

Provolone cheese holds pairs of corn tortillas together for quesadilla-style pizza bases. If you can’t find tomatillos, use thinly sliced Roma or cocktail tomatoes.

Kale and Cauliflower Alfredo

Eat without guilt or regrets. This rich, comforting pasta is lightened up with a cauliflower “cream.” For a more filling dish, stir in 2 cups small, steamed cauliflower florets before serving.

Cheese Mushroom and Swiss Chard Torta

Cheese, Mushroom, and Swiss Chard Torta

A torta is a free-form, double-crusted pie that requires no special pie dish. Serve with steamed carrots or roasted root vegetables. For more robust flavor, you can substitute kale or collard greens for the Swiss chard.

Three Sisters Savory Cobbler

Spinach-Artichoke Mini Lasagnas

Spinach-Artichoke Mini Lasagnas

This recipe, by Lisa Lyn Adkins, was awarded "Best Entree" in VT's 2014 Reader Recipe Contest. "I come from an Italian family, but I had a couple of issues with lasagna—it can be laborious and the end product is messy,” says Adkins. “Building the lasagna in muffin tins makes it easier to assemble, cuts down on cooking time, and creates a neater presentation for guests.” The elementary school teacher and mother of four (“Every night is like a small dinner party!”) uses dumpling wrappers in lieu of pasta, plus plenty of veggies. “Spinach and artichokes are one of my favorite combos."

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.
