Niños Envueltos Dominicanos (Dominican Stuffed Cabbage Rolls)

Rich with the flavors of sofrito and three types of ground meat, these savory cabbage rolls are irresistible—especially in this version, which comes from Gravalese’s Dominican grandmother. The name of the dish, which translates to “swaddled children,” comes from the shape of the cabbage rolls themselves, but also nods to their deeply comforting nature.

Vigorón (Nicaraguan Cabbage and Yuca with Chicharrones)

Inspired by Mandy Baca's love of Sedano's, a Miami-based Latin grocery store, contrast is king in this refreshing Nicaraguan snack starring mildly sweet, tender yuca; a bracing, crunchy cabbage slaw; and salty chicharrones. Be sure to dress the yuca with all of the vinegar dressing from the cabbage slaw; it cuts through the dense starch and flavors the whole dish.

Mushroom Cuban Quesadillas

At New York City’s Golden Diner, chef Samuel Yoo roasts dry-brined mushrooms to build big flavor into his crispy, cheesy quesadillas. “The taste is very similar to a meat-based Reuben, that’s why we love it,” Yoo says. Here, we’ve channeled his roasting technique to create a vegetarian Cuban, spiked with tangy pickles and mustard. Keeping the mushrooms uncovered during brining helps them release more liquid, leading to a more concentrated flavor.

Spicy Eggplant and Zucchini Stir-Fry with Plant-Based Meat

Similar in texture to ground beef with a rich, meaty flavor, plant-based crumbles are a perfect addition to quick-cooking stir-fries. Here, the eggplant and zucchini cook quickly, absorbing plenty of flavor from the chile-garlic and soy sauces, without getting overly tender. Fresh cilantro adds an extra pop of freshness to the finished stir-fry; serve over brown or white rice for a fast and filling weeknight meal.

Carrot Cake Marmalade with Yogurt and Fresh Fruit

At Molly’s Rise and Shine in New Orleans, diners rave about the yogurt bowl topped with sunny roasted carrot marmalade. This take on chef Mason Hereford’s marmalade gets big flavor from stewing carrots and apple with cinnamon, cardamom, and star anise for a warmly spiced result.
