We’ve made some darn good healthy recipes in 2014. Here are my top picks of the year:
1. Nutty Baby Kale Chips
I am still high on the kale bandwagon. Instead of buying those crazy-expensive chips at the store, try making your own by rubbing the leaves with a little almond butter and roasting until they’re super crispy and totally addictive.
2. Giardinera-Style Roasted Vegetables
This is one of those dishes that’s just so smart it makes you pause and wonder why somebody didn’t think of it sooner. Food & Wine’s Kay Chun roasts pickled vegetables and then combines them with classic giardinera ingredients like peppers and olives, creating an amazing plate of vegetable goodness.
