Potato-Leek Tart with Gochujang & Honey

Spinach Puffs

These bite-sized spinach puffs are reminiscent of artichoke dip, with a slight hint of spice from ground pepper and za’atar seasoning. Puff pastry surrounds the savory filling, adding a crispy golden crust on the outside.

Roasted Carrot Tart with Carrot-Green Pesto

In this vegetarian main-dish recipe, you use the entire carrot from root to greens, so there’s less waste. Roasted carrots are layered on top of a creamy ricotta base with pesto made using the green tops from carrots. Untrimmed carrots can be tough to find, but when you do, cut off the tops and store them separately or they’ll draw moisture from the carrots. If you don’t have carrot greens, use 1 cup of parsley instead.
