Crab-Stuffed Avocados

Photo: Hector Manuel SanchezYieldServes 4 (serving size: 1 filled avocado half)We couldn& 39;t resist stuffing cup-shaped avocado halves, here gently seared until lightly caramelized. Sweet crabmeat dressed with zingy lemon and tarragon is a nice complement to the buttery avocado; chopped cooked shrimp or shredded chicken breast would also work.

Bacon-Powered Sweet Potato Veggie Skillet

Most breakfast proteins—ham, sausage, bacon—are loaded with flavor, but that indulgence comes at a sodium- and saturated fat-filled cost. Have your bacon (and eat it, too) by using a small amount to season an entire pan of plants. Bonus: The fat helps you absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A and K. If you don& 39;t have feta, you can try substituting goat cheese.

Tahini-Carrot Soup with Pistachios

Luscious, velvety carrot soup gets its body from tahini, not yogurt or cream. Tahini’s ability to stand in for dairy makes it a go-to for vegans and those who keep kosher. Thankfully, this is a sub that sacrifices nothing; it keeps the soup in super-savory territory despite the sweetness of the carrots.

Toasted Jasmine Rice

Long-grain jasmine rice is wonderfully fragrant, almost sweet, making it a great complement to seafood. We use the pilaf method (coating the grains in fat first before simmering) so the rice can slowly release its starch and become fluffy, not sticky. The pilaf method also toasts the grains just as you would toast nuts or spices in a pan, adding a wonderful nuttiness.

Charred Shrimp and Okra Bowl

We love a great gumbo, but the dish can feel a little too hearty for warm summer days. This dish keeps the classic elements of gumbo but with a fresh identity. Traditional? No. Completely delicious? Yes! It’s important to set your oven rack about 6 inches from the heat, usually the second position. This is close enough that the vegetables and shrimp will crisp and far away enough that they won’t burn.
