Hoppin’ John with Orange Bell Peppers

Hoppin' John with Orange Bell Peppers Recipe
Loads of ham hocks, cured pork belly or even smoked turkey wings are usually key ingredients in this Southern dish. In this healthy Hoppin' John recipe, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper bring on the flavor. Ounce-for-ounce, these two spices contain roughly 2 1/2 times the beta carotene of boiled sweet potatoes. Serve as a main-dish stew or serve a smaller portion as a side along with some brown rice.

Chicken Katsu with Creamy Slaw

Chicken Katsu with Creamy Slaw Recipe
This crispy Japanese chicken recipe comes complete with a creamy warm slaw on the side. Serve with steamed brown rice or buckwheat soba noodles to round out the meal.
