Cheesy Broccoli Baked Potatoes

Cheesy Broccoli Baked Potatoes

Our family-style cheesy broccoli baked potatoes are a winning solution for families divided by dietary differences. Starting with naturally gluten-free russet potatoes baked to perfection, each person can top their potato based on what they like! The easy cheesy sauce is vegan, and carnivorous eaters can add crispy bacon. For a full meal, serve with your favorite pre-made soup (we love Amy’s Organic Chunky Vegetable!).

Spinach Shakshuka with Feta

Spinach Shakshuka with Feta

Traditionally tomato-based, this shakshuka calls for spinach instead. Designed to turn out a delicious dinner from pantry staples—eggs, frozen greens, garlic, onion, and bread—the recipe can be tailored to what you have on hand. No spinach? Substitute Swiss chard or any green, really. No feta? Used crumbled cotija or even finely grated cheddar. The bread, however, is essential for mopping up the saucy mixture of eggs and greens. Shakshuka is usually served with pita, but we’ve opted for multigrain gluten-free toast. Try it with warm corn tortillas or crusty bread. We find it suitable for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This recipe is great for a weeknight dinner or for meal-prepping for the week—it can easily be scaled up for more portions!

Chicago Dog with an East Coast Twist

Who doesn’t love a Chicago dog? An icon with particular acclaim in the Midwest, we’ve made our own East Coast version using all-beef Brooklyn hot dogs, fermented dill pickles, jalapeño relish and, our most radical change, blistered shishito peppers in lieu of the traditional celery-salted sport pepper. Don’t knock it till you try it!
