Staff writer Isabelle Burden describes her dish as "oatmeal with soul." Instead of the usual rolled or steel-cut oats, she uses teff, a whole grain from Ethiopia that has a naturally sweet and nutty flavor.

Cinnamon-Scented Millet with Grilled Summer Vegetables

If you're a fan of couscous, you'll probably like this delicious side dish, which has a subtle sweetness thanks to a dressing made with a touch of honey, Valencia oranges, lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil.

Faux-Roe Gunkanmaki with Pickled Daikon

"No way!" you're probably thinking. That looks just like sushi! But it's not. It's amaranth inside of the seaweed wrapper, not some exotic beet-red fish roe — although that's what Erin Wysocarski, author of Olives for Dinner and member of the Culinary Content Network, probably intended. Vegan sushi is no joke if it's done right — no weird vegan fish substitutes here.

People normally associate farro with Italian cuisine, but Carrie Vibert, member of the Culinary Content Network and author of the blog poet in the pantry, uses teriyaki sauce to give this quick weeknight meal some Asian-inspired flavor.

Kasha Mushroom Pilaf

Kasha is also known as "toasted buckwheat groats." Not exactly the sexiest name. We like "kasha" much better. If you're looking for an easy, hearty side dish to go with a main dish, try this recipe from Rachel Rappaport, member of the Culinary Content Network and author of the blog Coconut & Lime.
