Onion Broth

This broth gets its flavor from two members of the onion family, Spanish onions and leeks. Be sure to wash the leeks well, since they often come with quite a bit of sandy soil hidden among the green leafy tops.

Roast Turkey Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Using frozen juice in its concentrated form makes a delicious low-fat vinaigrette for this turkey and sweet potato salad. The dressing also supplies an impressive amount of vitamin C.

Sesame Asparagus & Snow Peas

Toasted sesame seeds and toasted sesame seed oil give a rich, dark flavor to this steamed vegetable dish.

Toasted Sesame & Carrot Muffins

The heady flavors of dark sesame oil and cardamom give these muffins a decidedly Indian flavor.

Tuna-Tomato Salad

Tuna salad is one of those things that's hard to resist, so this recipe makes a single serving to help you with portion control. If you are making this for more than one person, just multiply the ingredients times the number of servings you need.

Lemon-Dill Beans & Peas

A very small amount of butter added to the dish at the end softens the lemon sauce and gives the beans a very rich flavor. However you can omit the butter for a tarter, more lemony sauce.

Pineapple-Peach Smoothie

Nectars are fruit juices that are thicker than most juices because they have pulp in them. They are also usually sweetened.

Chicken Curry with Wide Noodles

In this comfort food dish with an Asian flair, chicken, sweet potatoes, and carrots in a velvety curry sauce are tossed with noodles.

Ginger Lemonade

Adding ginger to lemonade considerably ups its health quotient. This recipe calls for a full pound of ginger, which makes a moderately strong-tasting beverage. For an even more potent "hit" of ginger, use an additional 1/4 to 1/2 pound. Fortunately, you don't have to peel all that ginger, just slice it.
