Recipes for Health

by Susan Littlefield


Have you fallen into a meal-time rut when it comes to preparing healthful vegetables and fruits? Find inspiration and delicious recipes in the Recipes for Health section on the New York Times website.

From apricots and artichokes to unusual greens and winter squash, you'll find lots of mouth-watering suggestions for including these high-nutrition foods in your diet. Also included are recipes using whole grains like buckwheat, bulgur, and quinoa, as well as fish, tofu, tahini -- even gluten-free pasta.

Enjoy seasonal produce like kale and cabbage in recipes like Provencal Kale and Cabbage Gratin, a delicious main dish casserole that includes rice, Gruyere cheese, garlic, and sage. Or how about taking advantage of abundant butternut squash in soft tacos with sauteed winter squash and chipotles?

The recipes, by noted cookbook author Martha Rose Shulman, include a color photo of each dish, along with nutritional information. There is also general information on the nutritional benefits of each type of food and tips on preparation. Recipes are conveniently searchable by theme, such as budget meals, dinner for one, and do-ahead dishes, as well as categories like entree salads, appetizers, and soups.
