Rio Star grapefruits are at their peak now, so this is the best time to tuck into this liqueur-infused frosty treat. The Campari helps the sorbet stay scoopable, but if you want to substitute it with orange juice (or grapefruit juice), or omit it entirely, that is fine.
This unique take on dal is loaded with broccoli and warm spices.
If you find yourself with a lot of broccoli on hand, try making a double batch of this pesto - it keeps beautifully in the freezer.
Here’s an unusual pȃté that would be an excellent addition to a vegetarian riff on a charcuterie platter.

This is a hearty dish that vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters will all appreciate, making it ideal for a potluck or dinner party. For a wheat-free dish, you could even swap the couscous with quinoa.

This recipe for ajiaco is by no means authentic, but it is a good approximation of the traditional Colombian chicken and potato stew, warming and filling, a comforting soup for chilly winter days. Authentic ajiaco calls for an herb called guascas, but we’ve substituted it with oregano in this recipe. If you’re able to find guascas though, by all means use it here.

Golden, crunchy, and salty-sweet, these latkes can be served with applesauce or sour cream, or both, or nothing at all (they’re that good!). You might even try smoked salmon or caviar. Squeezing as much moisture as possible out of the apple-potato-onion mixture is the key to crispy pancakes.

To develop deep, rich umami taste, this recipe has you initially cook the onions on the stove, then transfer them for some time in the oven, and back on the stovetop to simmer with thyme, tamari, and balsamic vinegar. A lid of toasted baguette and homemade “mozzarella” take this to another level.

This comforting meal makes enough to feed a crowd, and its sweet-sour combination of caramelized onion, beer, and vinegar gives it distinctive character. Note that the short ribs will need to sit, seasoned, for eight hours in the refrigerator, but almost all of the preparation time is hands-off. Excellent served over buttered noodles or mashed potatoes.
These lightly sweet, golden, and fluffy pancakes are topped with a simple citrus-y cranberry sauce.
