Spiced Squash Broth with Toasted Fideos

This is it, folks. This is the perfect, unexpected, amazing vegetable soup, adapted from Michael Solomonov’s beast of a cookbook Zahav. This recipe is the perfect example of his brilliant and unusual use of commonplace spices and other ingredients.

Rosemary Onion Jam

This is one of my favorite kinds of dishes -- one that’s made up entirely of ingredients that are likely part of your rotation of pantry staples, but which, when combined and cooked in just the right way, make a dish that feels truly luxurious.

Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt Tahini Harissa Sauce

So, you made harissa, that beautifully-spiced sauce that’s sweet, smoky, and packs a nice heat. What next? Mix it into everything! Mix it into hummus or stir a dollop into soup.

Tilapia & Black Bean Rice Bowl With Butternut Squash & Two Salsas

Rice bowls are starting to be a big thing these days, and there's a good reason. Take something a little saucy, something with some great texture, something with protein or some bite to it, arrange on top of rice, add the condiments of your choice, and enjoy your healthy, delicious, and filling meal!

Orzo with Cinnamon, Brown Butter, and Parsley

This recipe is ridiculously simple, but also completely unexpected. A savory pasta dish with cinnamon, parsley, and brown butter? Don’t knock it til you try it.

Caramelized Onion Dip

Thanksgiving may be the #1 food holiday that we celebrate in America, but Super Bowl Sunday isn't far behind it. This grown-up version of French Onion Dip is perfect for your Super Bowl potluck party.

Rosemary and White Bean Soup

This soup falls into the category of “Total Classic” and deservedly so. The silky bean and vegetable soup and the woody aroma of rosemary make for perfect complements to each other, the starch of the beans standing up to rosemary’s strong flavor, and the flavor of the rosemary bringing out depths of flavor in the beans that otherwise might remain hidden.

Shakshuka!

It’s going to be a cold one on the East Coast this weekend — time for a warming breakfast that gives you the power and energy to get through the day. Here’s one amazing option — Shakshuka! Not only is it fun to say, it’s a delicious, savory, healthy egg dish that makes for an exciting and comforting meal.

Pumpkin Tea Cake

Are you sick of pumpkin-flavored things yet? Yes? No? Either way, this tea cake is for you. Rather than the standard mix of spices that linger in the background and provide a general warmth to a pumpkin-flavored treat, this tea cake goes big and bold with the spices, incorporating a whopping 5 teaspoons of Vanns Ground Cinnamon, 2 tsp.

Turkey Meatloaf With Herbs & Cheeses

“Turkey Meatloaf’ isn’t exactly an inspirational title, I know. It conjures up something bland and dry, something healthy, but without joy.

Delicious Harissa Sauce

What do you call something that’s a sauce, a paste, a flavor-adder, a spark of heat and a touch of earth, a zing to be stirred into soups and pilafs, mixed with yogurt and hummus, spread on sandwiches and mixed into marinades?

Roasted Carrot Salad With Avocado, Cumin Seed, Lemon, & Cilantro

This is just one of those recipes that, when you suddenly realize that you have all the simple ingredients sitting in your fridge, you’ll be really excited to make. It’s just good, healthy, satisfying food.

Spiced Cranberry Cake

This is our go-to cake. It looks humble -- just one layer, no icing, the fruit on top kind of burst open and starting to get jammy -- but once people take a bite, they’re hooked.
