Did you know, chilled hollandaise makes a flavorful sandwich spread? Try it on a baguette with prosciutto and arugula, or any other sandwich where you'd typically turn to butter.

Grilled Mussels with Salsa Verde

This is a fun little appetizer of mussels roasted with salsa verde, a bold-flavored Italian sauce made with lots of fresh herbs, garlic and anchovies. We blanch the garlic in this version to give it a more subtle flavor that doesn’t overpower the mussels.

Chicken Breasts with Green Chile-Almond Cream Sauce

Here we topped seared chicken breasts with a green chile cream sauce that was inspired by green mole. A touch of cream adds an extra smoothness, but it can be omitted if you avoid dairy.

Cauliflower Puree with Toasted Pine Nuts

This pretty white puree looks great on the table, and the flavor doesn't disappoint. Steaming the cauliflower and garlic in milk brings out their natural sweetness, while delicate toasted pine nuts lend sophistication.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

“Tortilla soup has a place, I feel, in practically every collection of Mexican recipes,” says Rick Bayless. This is a vegetarian version of the classic soup, usually made with chicken. Earthy dark pasilla chile flavors the soul-satisfying broth. (Recipe adapted from Rick Bayless.)

Paprika & Red Pepper Soup wiht PIstachio Puree

Richly satisfying, this luscious-looking soup made with red bell peppers gets a touch of heat from Thai chile. For an extra-nutty flavor, puree an additional 1/4 cup shelled pistachios with 1/4 cup water and serve the soup with a dollop of this pistachio puree on top.
