    Pasta With Mushrooms and Citrus-Beet Salad

    Chef and television personality Frankie Celenza is joining TODAY to share a couple of his favorite budget-friendly seasonal recipes. He shows us how to make a citrus and beet salad with walnuts and homemade cavatelli pasta with mushrooms and sage. Courtesy Frank Celenza I’ve always loved beets. Their color is incredible and their flavor is deep, sweet and peppery. This “salad,” which can be served warm or cold, is a celebration of wintertime fruits and veg, which saves money if you make it this winter. It’s tasty, filling, healthy and elegant, sure to elevate so many main dishes. Courtesy Frank

    Mandy Yin’s recipe for anchovy fried rice | Food

    This is a variation of the perennial favourite, fried rice. It is a take on nasi goreng kampung (village fried rice), a dish I have often had at Malay hawker stalls where ikan bilis (dried anchovies) are a key component. Eating this always takes me back to the Malay uncle pumping out nasi goreng like there’s no tomorrow at the hawker centre at Batu Ferringhi, Penang. To make the recipe vegetarian, simply leave out the ikan bilis and add salt, to taste, at the end of the cooking process. Serves 1oil 3 tbsponion 50g, finely choppeddried

    Tamal Ray’s recipes for winter pulse freezer meals | Food

    After weeks of a diet whose main food groups comprise paté, cheese and Ferrero Rocher, I’ve started the new year with mind and gut crying out for a change. I won’t be indulging in any crash dieting, though. Instead, I’ll be shifting my focus to foods that nourish and satisfy and, in particular, feed the gut microbiome. These dishes rely on pulses, which are naturally full of fibre, to provide sustenance to all the microorganisms that make a home in our digestive system and help to keep us healthy. Both are also great to make in bulk and freeze,

    Padma Lakshmi Shares Her Favorite Ways to Cook With Kale

    I love using kale because it’s a very hearty and versatile green — it stands up well to heat and is more nutrient-dense than regular lettuces. When I’m preparing a meal, I always like to stack the deck with as many nutrients as possible, especially when I’m cooking for my daughter. There are several types of kale, which can sometimes be used interchangeably. My favorite types are lacinato (also called dinosaur or Tuscan), curly and red. The health benefits of kale: Kale has lots of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin A, which is good for eye and bone health and

    ‘I get the rowdiest crowds in Australia’: Yotam Ottolenghi on touring and risk-taking recipes | Food

    “Australia is on a different scale,” says Yotam Ottolenghi, a chef who needs little introduction. A household name, to cook his recipes has almost become its own cuisine. Preparing a tour that will take him away from the British winter to large theatres and convention centres across Australia’s east coast, I ask, does he find this experience strange: taking to the stage not the kitchen? “I pinch myself all the time, I’m blue all over,” he says with genuine bemusement. “I don’t really do that kind of size in other parts of the world.” And the audience? “I get the

    25 Essential Healthy Recipes That Are Also Great for Meal Prep

    Reality TV shows like Chopped have turned cooking into a competitive sport, but it doesn’t have to be quite so high stakes. Getting a handle on a few healthy recipes can go a long way. (There’s nothing wrong with takeout or delivery, but most of us can’t afford to outsource every single meal!) It also takes some of the guesswork out of weeknight meals, because it means you have several easy dinners to fall back on when you don’t feel like ordering in or getting creative. The best part is that simple, healthy meals are often the easiest to throw
