Lemony Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad

Elegant and delicious, this salad will win raves. The method for roasting canned artichoke hearts to rekindle their flavor was suggested by a chef and friend, Tina Miller. This salad tastes and looks best on the day it’s made.

Oven-Baked Turkey Meatballs

These turkey meatballs are one of those simple recipes I get asked to make again and again for the families I cook for. They are certainly kid-friendly. These meatballs are tender (not always easy to do with turkey) and easy to cook because they bake in the oven rather than fried in oil in a pan. I’ve included my favorite, go-to tomato sauce as well.

Mee Goreng

This Malaysian noodle dish is from Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi, and quick enough to make on a weeknight. This cookbook, a recent favorite, features vegetarian recipes. He’s a restaurant chef so the recipes can sometimes be more involved, but they are also expertly flavored and not run of the mill.
