Food & Wine recipes

Intrigued by the a-photo-with-every-recipe cover story, this month's Food and Wine magazine had me flipping past the story on eating pig head to reach their color-coded spread on "The Twenty+ Best Healthy Recipes Ever." The feature offers up how-to recipes ranging from Chicken Curry with Squash (yellow) to Black-Sesame Salmon Balls; an overwhelming number of the dishes were gluten free.
2 of the dishes called for wheat-based ingredients (linguine and panko bread crumbs) but they could easily be modified. A few more included soy sauce - easily swapped out for wheat-free tamari. 18 out of 20 recipes, being gluten-free, not bad!

Admittedly the Sake-Steamed Halibut with Ginger and Cabbage - also with shaved cauliflower- was a weird, bland white on white on barely green dish that made me want to turn the page not run out to the fish monger, but the majority of the dishes were quite the opposite. The grilled Asian Eggplant with Ginger Sauce was smartly plated atop a purple platter and the Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard both made me rethink sitting home on this dreary day.
