Beta-Carotene-Rich Recipes

Martha Stewart Living, November 2001

Brightly colored vegetables -- brilliant yellow, vibrant orange, or deep green -- are often good sources of beta-carotene, an antioxidant believed to help prevent heart disease and cancer. What's more, beta-carotene-rich vegetables such as sweet potatoes, spinach, and carrots are full of flavor. Carrot soup or baked sweet potatoes with onions are ideal for lunch; our spinach-and-ricotta roulade makes a dinner that's at once healthful and elegant.
