Colorful vegetables and fruits—baby greens, eggplant, squash, dates, pomegranate, and more—offer delicious ways fill half your plate with produce. For whole grains, quick-cooking, fiber-rich bulgur gets dressed up with tomatoes, walnuts, and herbs. Try these six new recipes:
- Cozy Red Lentil Mash
- Thai Eggplant Salad with Coconut Tofu Strips
- Garlic-Braised Greens
- Roasted Squash with Pomegranate
