Kale, Mushroom, and Caramelized Onion Pizza
Fresh kale means this pizza packs an antioxidant punch!

Ingredients
1 package (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 package (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups packed coarsely chopped kale
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup pizza sauce
3/4 cup (3 ounces) finely shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions
Yield: 4 servings

1 – Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with nonstick cooking spray. Unroll pizza dough on prepared pan. Press dough evenly into pan and 1/2 inch up sides. Prick dough all over with fork. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

2 – Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 8 minutes or until golden brown. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook and stir 4 minutes. Add kale and red pepper flakes; cover and cook 2 minutes to wilt kale. Uncover; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

3 – Spread pizza sauce over crust. Spread kale mixture evenly over sauce; top with cheese. Bake 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Note: Kale has tough stems that should be removed before cooking. To trim away tough stems, make a “V-shaped” cut where the stem joins the leaf. Stack the leaves and cut them into pieces.

BROCCOLI SALAD WITH PEANUT DRESSING
This recipe takes a tip from Thai cuisine and the peanut dressing is a healthy substitute for high-calorie, high-fat cheese sauces (or butter) that many use to top their broccoli. It is a great tasting topping for this cool salad, and the red onion and red bell pepper provide added nutrition, flavor and color.

Ingredients

4 cups broccoli florets
1 medium red bell pepper, cut in thin strips, about 1 cup
1/3 cup red onion, cut in thin crescents
3 Tbsp. smooth peanut butter, natural and unsweetened
2 tsp. roasted sesame oil
1-2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp. agave syrup
Pinch of salt
Ground black pepper
Red pepper flakes, optional

Directions

1 – Place steamer basket in large saucepan. Add water to depth of 1 inch. Cover and bring the water to boil. Add broccoli, cover and steam over medium-high heat until tender-crisp, 3 minutes. Transfer broccoli to mixing bowl. Add bell pepper and onion.
2 – In small bowl, combine peanut butter and sesame oil. Add vinegar, lime juice, soy sauce and agave and whisk until dressing is smooth. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over vegetables and use fork to toss until salad is well coated. Sprinkle on red pepper flakes, if using, and mix to combine. Cover, and refrigerate the salad for 1 hour before serving, or up to 24 hours. Toss well before serving.
