Seared Tuna with Shaved Vegetable Salad

Seared Tuna with Shaved Vegetable Salad | "Shaving raw root veggies into a side dish salad is a fantastic idea.

Spruce Up Lunch With a Tuna Niçoise Whole-Grain Bowl

Tuna Niçoise Whole-Grain Bowl | "We combined the classic Niçoise combo of haricots verts, potatoes, hard-cooked eggs, tuna, and olives with whole-grain rye berries, which have a nutty, faintly peppery-tangy flavor.

Creamy Poblano Tacos

Creamy Poblano Tacos | "This recipe may become a favorite with the crunch of corn and the spice of poblano.

Smashed Chickpea Salad Toast | "A little reminiscent of both tuna salad and egg salad, this combo of coarsely mashed chickpeas, mayo, pickles, celery, and onion is all at once creamy, crunchy, and toothsome.

Yellow Bell Pepper Gazpacho

Vegan Yellow Bell Pepper Gazpacho | "This soup screams "summer" with its bright, refreshing flavor and cool temperature. Holding out a little bit of the bell pepper and tomato for a fresh relish garnish adds textural variety—some crunch and chew to contrast the smooth soup. A high-powered blender will yield the silkiest results, but a regular blender works well, too. You can make the soup a day ahead and keep it chilled." #souprecipes #soupinspiration #soup #stew #chili #soupideas

It’s a great introduction to greens other than lettuce or spinach. " #pizza #pizzarecipes #pizzainspiration #pizzaideas #recipes
