An unexpected trio of flavors combines perfectly to create a wonderfully silky and irresistible deviled egg; avocado brings texture while anchovy adds a deep base note and salt. A garnish of trout roe echoes the subtle fishy flavors.
No cream required: Tahini gives this soup its buttery flavor and silky texture -- and makes a serving of dark leafy greens unusually enticing. Sliced avocado dressed with lemon and sprouts jazzes up ordinary crusty bread and rounds out this balanced meal.
The secret to crispy croutons is tearing the bread -- the nooks and crannies absorb more olive oil than evenly sliced pieces. (Of course, the real challenge is not devouring the whole batch when they're warm and fresh out of the oven.)
