Check out our newest recipes from Better Homes and Gardens magazine: healthy dinners from Ellie Krieger, a budget-friendly dinner, and recipes to kick off a new year!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Nutritionist Ellie Krieger's Butternut Squash Risotto gets its velvety texture from the squash and short-grain rice, not butter.

Sesame Chicken with Broccoli Stir-Fry

A Chinese restaurant favorite, sesame chicken "hits the spot in terms of feeling indulgent, but this version is so much healthier because I add a generous amount of broccoli and serve it with fiber-rich brown rice," cookbook author Ellie Krieger says.

Open-Face Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

TV personality Ellie Krieger makes even the much-loved Philly-style cheesesteak sandwich healthier by starting with a lean cut of beef. "By serving them open-face with a light cheese sauce and lean meat, you can cut calories down to a third of the typical sandwich."

Minestrone Soup

Minestrone is the quintessential vegetable soup, already healthful. Nutritionist Ellie Krieger pairs the soup with a good-for-you panini filled with arugula, part-skim mozzarella, and a touch of prosciutto.

Green Salad with White Beans, Apples, and Walnuts

This protein-packed salad from cookbook author Ellie Krieger could be dinner in itself.

Brown Sugar Pork Chops with Onions

For $1 per serving, these pork chops are delicious with this onion sauce spooned over and fresh steamed green beans served on the side.

Vegetable-Loaded Pasta Bake

This hearty casserole features cauliflower, carrots, celery, kale, peas, and corn, but you can substitute with your favorite veggies.

Baked Asiago Hummus

For a warm twist on hummus, try this creative dip. Rosemary, sesame oil, and garlic add a punch of flavor.
