NY Times Recipes for Health Bulgur and Chickpea Salad with Mint and Parsley

Recipe by Martha Rose Shulman
Bulgur and chickpeas have complementary amino acids, so this lemony salad offers you a complete protein package. You can prepare coarse bulgur by simmering it or by soaking it. Simmering will yield a softer, fluffier grain ó and bigger portions.

New York Times Chinese Fried Rice with Shrimp and Peas

All intro text, ingredients, and instructions by Martha Rose Shulman.

This is a more subdued version of fried rice than the spicier Thai fried rice. Itís a great dish to make if you have cooked rice on hand and a great vehicle for whatever vegetables may be in your refrigerator. Feel free to add other cooked vegetables, meat or seafood.

NY Times Thai Combination Fried Rice

This dish is loosely based on Thailandís ubiquitous fried rice dish, kao pad. Usually some kind of animal protein accompanies the rice ó squid, crabmeat, ham, chicken, whatever the cook has on hand. Iíve made this version vegetarian, as the most important ingredients are the rice itself, the garlic and the fish sauce. Have all of your ingredients prepared and close to the stove. Cooking goes very quickly.

Tuna and Bean Salad

Leek and Yogurt Pie

by Martha Rose Shulman, from the NY Times: "This vegetable pie is based on a recipe from Diane Kochilas's 'The Glorious Foods of Greece,' an essential compendium for anyone interested in that country's regional cuisines. I've added the walnuts and dill. In the original recipe, butter is used instead of olive oil.
