We’ve joined the forces of superfoods and the talent of Washington area chefs to create the Superfoods Chefs’ Challenge, a monthly series of recipes and techniques to help home cooks incorporate nutritious ingredients into their lives.
The challenge works like this: We give the chefs our own compiled list of superfoods to choose from. They pick two ingredients and highlight them inventively in a total of four original recipes. They must work with foods that haven’t been previously selected, so as the competition goes forward, the challenges will become more formidable.
As the challenges continue, readers will be able to consult this list, which will be annotated with recipe links as they become available:
Avocados (executive chef Nick Palermo of Old Angler’s Inn, Potomac: Chilean-Style Avocado Salad; Pan-Seared Pork Chops With Roasted Avocado, Broccoli and Sherry Vinaigrette)
Dried superfruits (organic, unsweetened cranberries, figs, apricots, currants, cherries)
Turkey (executive chef Nick Palermo of Old Angler’s Inn, Potomac: Turkey Cassoulet; Turkey Coconut Milk Curry With Basmati Rice)
Yogurt (low- or nonfat)
