Quick Mongolian Beef Stir-Fry Traditional recipes

Quick Mongolian Beef Stir-Fry

This speedy stir-fry, ready in just 20 minutes, achieves everything we love about Chinese takeout with just a few wholesome ingredients; no special equipment required. The trick is to get a good sear on the beef without cooking it all the way through, then adding it back into the mix after the vegetables become nicely crisp and the sweet-savory sauce, made from just 4 ingredients, has reduced into a thick, glossy sauce.

Peach-Glazed Pork Tenderloin Traditional recipes

Peach-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

YieldServes 4 (serving size: 3 oz.)ByJulia LevyAugust 2017A sweet-and-savory peach glaze caramelizes on the pork as it cooks to perfection in a grill pan. We tent the pork loosely with foil during the cooking process to hold in more heat so that the meat gets done in a flash; cutting the tenderloin in half crosswise also helps it cook faster and makes turning it frequently more manageable.

Salmon Salad with Cherry Vinaigrette Traditional recipes

Salmon Salad with Cherry Vinaigrette

Salmon, tart cherry juice, extra-virgin olive oil, dark leafy greens, edamame, and almonds are all anti-inflammatory foods. Cherry juice is a convenient, year-round alternative that delivers the same anti-inflammatory effect as fresh cherries. Canned salmon is another convenient option (especially for packing an easy lunch), providing plenty of DHA and EPA, which are omega-3 fatty acids that not only suppress inflammation but also increase production of anti-inflammatory compounds.

Steak, Feta, and Olive Quesadillas Traditional recipes

Steak, Feta, and Olive Quesadillas

We first tried a Mexican-Italian quesadilla mash-up with pizzadillas—quesadillas with melty mozzarella and a marinara dipping sauce. Now we head to the Mediterranean with a steak, feta, and olive quesadilla filling and a dollop of cool Greek yogurt on top. Instead of layering meat, vegetables, and cheese inside the tortilla, we make one filling of steak and vegetables to save time.

Umami Popcorn Traditional recipes

Umami Popcorn

If you’re worried that this crunchy snack will taste like fish, rest your fears. The anchovy paste simply lends rich umami depth and a good salty kick. We use a fair amount of fresh thyme here, too, for even more savory notes; it adds a woodsy, earthy flavor that other herbs just don’t quite have. If you would rather start with prepopped corn, opt for one with little or no seasoning, and use 8 cups.

Rigatoni with Kale Pesto

YieldServes 8 (serving size: about 1 cup)Whole-wheat pasta would be a tasty option here, complementing the earthy flavor of kale. Beyond tenderizing the kale, a quick blanch helps preserve its deep-green color in the pesto, even as it coats hot pasta.
