Ground turkey is a lower-fat alternative to beef chuck, and kidney beans -- loaded with vitamin C and omega-3s -- are an especially nutritious option. Yes, turkey contains tryptophan (an amino acid that can have a pleasantly sedative effect), but this one-pot dish has two other comfort-food essentials going for it: a warm temperature and a hearty makeup.

This recipe is adapted from Sarah Copeland's forthcoming book, "Feast" (Chronicle Books).This recipe is a brilliant way to work both greens and fish into your repertoire. The key player is gremolata, an uncooked green sauce; here, arugula gives it a mouthwatering peppery punch that contrasts with tender roasted potatoes, yellow squash, and mild Pacific halibut. The secret to getting that restaurant-quality sear on the fish is very simple: Cook it without turning it over, first on the stove top and then in the oven -- just to finish it off. Perfection.
