Korean White Radish Soup Recipe (Moo Gook)

Most of us have our favorite childhood dishes. One that stands out for me is my mom's moo gook - a traditional Korean soup that's made with white radish.

White radish, called "moo" in Korean, is sometimes called daikon or Chinese white radish, and in Indian cuisine, it's called "mooli." If you can't find white radish at your local grocery store, try visiting a local Asian food store - most carry multiple varieties. Read more about Korean White Radish Soup Recipe (Moo Gook)

Green Pea, Leek, and Potato Soup Recipe

If you're looking to eat healthfully on a tight budget, frozen green peas are an excellent choice. Fresh green peas are frozen shortly after being harvested, so they're almost as nutritious frozen as they are fresh.

Green peas are abundant in healthy protein, vitamin C, vitamin K1, folate, and a number of B vitamins. Their rich folate and vitamin B content make green peas a smart choice for keeping your blood homocysteine level in a healthy range, which is essential to decreasing your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Zucchini and Basil Quinoa Pilaf Recipe

If you're looking for a truly healthy, protein-rich food to anchor your diet, I highly recommend that you consider quinoa (pronounced keen wah). Called the "mother of grains" by the Incan empire, quinoa is native to South America, and is naturally rich in all nine essential amino acids - these are amino acids that we humans can't make from other nutrients, so must obtain from our diet. Quinoa is one of a few grains that are gluten-free, and for most people, it's easy to digest and utilize. Read more about Zucchini and Basil Quinoa Pilaf Recipe
