Crunchy Popcorn Cauliflower
A cunchy, savory pretzel-pecan coating turns roasted, caramelized cauliflower into an irresistible appetizer or kids’ snack that mimics flavored popcorn. Serve this popcorn cauliflower straight from the oven with a dipping sauce and watch these tasty little bites disappear……

Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas
Soaking chickpeas in vinegary hot sauce gives them a mouthwatering tang before they crisp up in the oven. The result? An addictively crunchy snack that’s actually good for you……..

Edamame with Aleppo Pepper

Good Skin Foods: Healthy Recipes for Glowing SkinEatingWell2

Keep your skin looking younger and smoother with these healthy skin foods.
Sunscreen helps keep your skin healthy and beautiful, protecting it from the outside in—but key nutrients in certain foods can shield your skin from damage from the inside out: vitamin C, lycopene, omega-3s, caffeine and isoflavones in soy. Better yet, many of the same foods that can boost your defenses against skin cancer (the most common type of cancer) will also help keep your skin smoother and ward off wrinkles. These recipes are packed with foods that are good for your skin.



Peanut Tofu Wrap
Baked tofu tossed with storebought Thai peanut sauce makes a quick and healthy sandwich filling. Finish the sandwich with your favorite crunchy vegetables for added nutrients and fiber…..

Sesame Tuna Salad
Toasted sesame oil transforms a humble staple like canned tuna into an elegant supper. We love the crunch of napa cabbage in this salad, but romaine lettuce would also work if you happen to have that on hand…..

Corn & Tomato Sauté
This simple sauté combines two summer stars—corn and tomatoes. If you don’t have fresh basil or tarragon, use whatever is best out of your herb garden….

Edamame Succotash with Shrimp
We give succotash—traditionally a Southern dish made with corn, lima beans and peppers—an update using edamame instead of limas and turn it into a main dish by adding shrimp. To get it on the table even faster, purchase peeled, deveined shrimp from the fish counter instead of doing it yourself. Make it a meal: All you need is a warm piece of cornbread to go with this complete meal…..
