    Tofu Saag | Saran's eye-opening technique here is to pat the tofu dry very briefly, rather than for 20 or 30 minutes. This keeps it moist and creamy inside, and the outside still gets browned. Look for ghee--clarified, toasted butter--at Indian or Asian markets.

    Slow Cooker Turkey Mole | Serve over rice or with corn tortillas.

    Olive Oil-Poached Salmon with White Beans #fish #healthyfamilydinners

    Crispy Rice with Ham and Bean Sprouts | Toasting half the rice in this recipe yields warmth and crunch that takes this ultra-comforting 5-ingredient entrée from ordinary to exceptional. For an added kick, serve with a drizzle of Sriracha.

    Shrimp 'n' Grits Skewers | Try shrimp and grits in skewer form. These skewers feature polenta cubes, shrimp, and grape tomatoes.

    Glazed Salmon and Rice Bowl | A soy sauce, honey, and vinegar mixture doubles as a marinade for the salmon and a drizzle over the finished dish.

    London Broil with Mushroom Sauce | London broil actually refers to a cooking method rather than the specific cut (top round or flank steak).

    Flank Steak with Herb Dressing and Charred Broccolini | Adding the steak's juices into the dressing it's served with boosts savory satisfaction.

    Beer-Braised Top Blade Roast | You can also cook the roast in a slow cooker. After adding the stock, transfer to a 6-quart electric slow cooker, and cook on LOW for about 8 hours.
