This bright, colorful salad does not need any added dressing or seasoning. You can substitute oranges for the grapefruit, if you like. Get the recipe.

Hearty and satisfying, this is almost a chili—except that there are more root vegetables than beans. Get the recipe.

Roasted Stuffed Winter Squash

Preparing squash this way—stuffed with a savory filling and roasted—puts that sturdy shell to good use. The flavorful rice provides good contrast to the squash and helps the stuffing mixture stay together without becoming chewy or dry during baking. Get the recipe.

Herbed Fingerling Potatoes
