Seafood Paella
Paella (which translates into Spanish as "pan") is a Spanish rice dish that varies from person to person and region to region—in Spain and beyond. It is traditionally cooked in a large, shallow pan over an open fire, but any large oven-proof sauté pan and a regular oven will work. Depending on your choice of stock, meat, and vegetables, you can come up with your own version. While seafood paella is probably the most popular version worldwide, you can even make a completely vegan paella using vegetable stock and substantial vegetables like artichoke hearts or mushrooms.

Kale & Wild Mushroom Ragout

This delicious ragout works with any type of kale you find at your market, whether it's red, green, Italian, curly, or flat. Serves 6 More

This is one occasion where ignorance is bliss! I have had people who would otherwise never venture close to tofu within their lifetimes compliment me on their second, even third, piece of "cheesecake." Ingredients More

According to the World's Healthiest Foods, "when it comes to three basic categories of nourishment—protein, fiber and anti-oxidant related substances—few foods have as solid a nutritional profile as black beans.
