Cauliflower-Chorizo Tacos

Turns out cauliflower was made for tacos! Top the spiced-up veggie with chorizo, beans, and jalapenos.

These candied chickpeas will have you craving salad. Toss them on top with plenty of fall flavors like Honeycrisp apple, dried cranberries, and clementines.

Lemon-Potato Soup with Feta

Our thoughts on cheese: For the best flavor, opt for the full-fat feta. You use just a bit, and it's worth it for the big boost of flavor.

Spanish-Style Gigante Beans

This recipe will change the way you think about lima beans. A flavorful crunchy topping of Marcona almonds, parsley, and garlic freshens up stewed beans.

Grilled Pork and Veggie Salad

Yes, the pork here is flavorful and juicy, but it's the charred lettuce that steals the show. (Trust us!)

Chicken and Sausage White Bean Pot

French-inspired food doesn't have to be complicated. No fancy technique here -- just one pot and some pantry staples.

Lemon-Cauliflower Rigatoni

Serving pasta over cauliflower may be a new idea, but the flavors here are old favorites like garlic, rosemary, and lemon.

One-Pan Sausage and Roasted Roots

A comforting fall dinner doesn't have to mean heavy, hearty meat. Swap in chicken sausages with roasted seasonal veggies for a lighter take.

Test Kitchen Tip: Don't skip the sauce! Our spicy-tart horseradish-yogurt sauce brings the whole dish together.

Cauliflower-Parmesan Pizza

Coating the cauliflower with panko bread crumbs before roasting gives this pizza major crunch. Finish the pie with chopped green olives and basil.

Stewed Fava Beans with Fennel and Sweet Potato

This vegetarian dinner is so hearty (beans + sweet potatoes), you won't miss the meat at all. Finish the pot with plenty of orange zest and butter.

Salmon Patties with Parsley Mayo

This is the place for super convenient prepackaged salmon pouches. Simply open them and you're halfway there. Brighten up the crisp cakes with our simple five-ingredient parsley mayo.

Roast Beef with Beer-Braised Pinto Beans

Beef, beer, and beans ... what's not to like? We prefer wheat beer in this recipe, but amber ale is just as good.

Califlower Samosa Nachos

You're looking at our new favorite way to use piecrust. Top the buttery pieces with a spicy-sweet cauliflower topping and finish with mango chutney.

Cauliflower-Pesto-Peanut Salad

Take that jar of purchased pesto in a new direction. Toss it with cooked cauliflower, peanuts, and chile peppers.
