Quiches always leave me feeling greasy and bloated. This one, my friends, is different. The crust is crunchy-chewy (healthy and gluten-free) quinoa, and the midsection is filled with garlicky chunks of broccoli and the sharp tang of Cheddar. And, as my 7-year-old daughter proved, this is a quiche kids love, too.

This coleslaw is super simple, crazy versatile, and so good I could eat the whole bowl by itself. Serve it on our Spicy Fish Tacos, as a side with poultry or as a kick-ass sandwich condiment.

Not everyone is an eggplant lover. But this may change that. Long, slender Asian eggplant are no-fuss, and soak up the spicy, sweet, sticky sauce they're doused with when creamy and tender. This is a hearty vegetarian main course paired with brown rice, quinoa, or even wheat berries, but would also make a terrific side dish.

Fregola is an Italian rolled pasta similar to Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully toothsome in this salad. If you can't find fregola (or wanted to go gluten free), millet would be a great substitute. Top with a few chunks of good quality tuna packed in olive oil and you've got a nice, hearty, nourishing meal.
