2. Butternut Lasagna

Lasagna has always been an ideal vehicle for veggies, but we took it one step further and layered in thinly sliced squash, nestled among noodles and fresh pesto. Add spinach to your pesto for an additional punch of veg.

This warming and flavorful lentil dish is a daily staple in India. Bonus: it’s also vegan. Serve this spiced dish on its own or with a side of rice, bread, or grilled vegetables. Daal is one of those dishes that tastes even better with time, so look forward to leftovers.

4. Cornbread Avocado Toast
