In this carefully curated collection, we made sure to include something for everyone. Want to skip the restaurant and have a date night at home? Enter elegant dishes such as Risotto Primavera or Steamed Mussels in White Wine with Parsley. You can try Pad Thai or Sichuan Orange Chicken with Broccoli when you are craving the bold flavors of takeout but don’t want leftovers for days. If you’re in a rush on a busy weeknight, no problem—nearly half of these meals take 45 minutes or less to prepare (times are provided for every recipe so you know the commitment beforehand). There are also plenty of meat-free options, from Asian Braised Tofu with Butternut Squash and Eggplant to Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Garlic, and Walnuts. Some recipes are full dinners that include a side dish (such as Parmesan and Basil-Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Carrots), while others are entrées (such as Herb-Crusted Beef Tenderloin) that can be paired with one of the 15 additional fuss-free, perfectly scaled side dishes provided in the appendix.
