Veggie-forward dishes like these challenge the notion that meals always consist of a meat entree, a starch and a little vegetable on the side. You can save money and power up the nutrient factor by making vegetables the star. If you want to make healthy gluten-free cooking a priority this year, these dishes are a flavorful, inspiring place to start. These dishes work as a side (just adjust your portions) if you want a traditional meal but also make wonderful main attractions themselves.
