recipe

This savory-sweet Moroccan pie is traditionally made with chicken or pigeon, but we chose turkey instead. Here it's cooked with fragrant ginger, saffron and turmeric before being wrapped in phyllo dough alongside sweetened almonds and eggs whisked with cilantro and parsley.

recipe

Replacing the usual puff pastry or piecrust with delicate sheets of phyllo plays up the delicious filling underneath. Sink in to find poached chicken, sweet carrots, and tender peas and celery -- all bathed in a light broth instead of butter-heavy sauce. A sprinkle of lively tarragon, a handful of aromatic parsley, and sauteed garlic and shallots give depth to this wintertime favorite.

recipe

Barley, brimming with protein and minerals, and whole-wheat phyllo dough make this a low-glycemic fiber powerhouse. A pleasingly nutty taste and a lush texture make you swear you're gobbling heavy cream.

recipe

Phyllo is neither the culinary bully nor nutrition nightmare that it is commonly thought to be. Quick hands and a good pastry brush or nonstick cooking spray are all you need to make delicious pastries. You can use muffin tins for the tart shells or make a single tart in a 6-inch cake pan.
