Soup You'll Crave Any Time of Year: Rachael's White Minestrone

For a healthy yet oh-so-satisfying vegetarian meal, Rachael's tasty White Minestrone soup takes "comfort food" to a new level. And you won't have to bring out all your pots and pans to make it, since all the ingredients can simmer together in one large stockpot. The soup is delicious as is, but if you want to add a little more "comfort" to the meal, serve with cheesy garlic bread or stir in 12 ounces of gnocchi. (Note: If made with gnocchi or ditalini pasta, reduce beans in the soup by half.) Make it in bulk to enjoy all week long with these leak-proof containers that can go from freezer to microwave to dishwasher for easy storage, enjoyment, and cleanup.

For a Low-Carb Alternative: Rachael's Warm Chopped Greens with Crispy Beef Tenderloin and Cheese Sauce

For a truly satisfying steak dinner, look no further than Rach's Crispy Beef Tenderloin (with cheese sauce and warm greens—yum!). This is a meal packed with hearty greens, a favorite of Rach's as she's "been eating kale way longer than kale has been cool." You'll need a large skillet to wilt the greens, and a cast iron skillet (Rach's fave for meat!) that's piping hot for the perfect sear. Don't skip Rach's secret—freshly grated nutmeg—to really make the flavors shine. If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge in these containers for a ready-to-go lunch for work the next day. Pro tip: This meal also makes for a lovely date-night dinner!

A Fresh Spin on a Classic: Rachael's Tahini Caesar Salad with Chicken Za'atar

Rachael's Tahini Caesar with Chicken Za'atar recipe is one (tasty!) way to incorporate more greens in your diet. This salad is full of flavor, and the recipe also includes substitutions if you want to make the dish vegan-friendly. For homemade croutons, heat butter in a nonstick frying pan and add bread to coat and season with cheese. Opt for a small food processor when it comes to making the dressing to reach the perfect consistency. If you're planning on portioning this salad for meals later in the week, it's best to store toppings and dressing separately from the greens to maintain freshness. This glass tupperware set is a good option, since its various container sizes can store all parts of the meal individually. Tip: Rachael says kale can keep longer because it's a heartier green, which comes in handy if you like to prep salad ahead of time.
