So long as it’s whole grain, pasta is a great recovery dish for runners because it contains easily digestible carbs that help you restock spent glycogen (energy) stores. You can make this easy peanut sauce ahead, though you won’t want to dress the noodles until just before serving. For added protein, toss with cooked, shredded chicken or top with a sliced hard-boiled egg.
  1. 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  2. 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  3. 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  4. 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  5. 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  6. 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  7. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  8. 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  9. 1 teaspoon Asian chili-garlic paste
  10. Kosher salt
  11. 1 pound whole-grain or whole-wheat thin spaghetti or angel hair
  12. 3 to 4 cups tat soi leaves, or any other baby green, washed and dried
  13. 1 medium cucumber, peeled, halved, seeded and cut crosswise thinly (about 11 cups)
In food processor, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, peanut butter, maple syrup, ginger, rice vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and chili-garlic paste. Process until well mixed and smooth, scraping down sides once or twice. It will be emulsified but fairly liquidy. Refrigerate dressing if not using right away.
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water, following package directions. Drain (but don’t rinse) the pasta and let it sit in the strainer, tossing occasionally, until it’s no longer hot and wet, 15 to 20 minutes. It should be bouncy but sticky.
Put pasta in mixing bowl and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add most of the greens and all of the cucumbers. Drizzle with about 7 to 8 tablespoons of the dressing and mix well. Taste and add more dressing if necessary. Serve at room temperature, garnished with the remaining greens.
Serves 4 to 6.

Farro is a healthy, whole grain that dates back to biblical times. It’s a great source of vitamins and nutrients, as well as protein and fiber. Here, it’s molded into pancakes with breadcrumbs, egg and shredded zucchini.
  1. 31 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 pound)
  2. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  3. 2 cups cooked and cooled farro
  4. 3 large eggs
  5. 3 green onions, white and light green parts, finely chopped (about 3 tablespoons)
  6. 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  7. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  8. 1 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
  9. 2 tablespoons white whole-wheat flour or standard whole-wheat flour
  10. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  11. 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more if needed
Fried egg or Herbed Goat Cheese and Slow-Roasted Tomatoes (recipe follows)
In a bowl, toss zucchini with 1 teaspoon salt and set aside for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain by squeezing zucchini in cheesecloth or a fine-weave kitchen towel. When finished, you should be left with about 11 cups of relatively dry shredded zucchini.
In a large bowl, combine farro, eggs, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, green onions, parsley, thyme, bread crumbs, flour, garlic and zucchini. Stir well and let stand for 5 minutes. Knead the mixture a few times with your hands, then form 3-inch patties, about /2-inch thick, and place on a plate to await cooking.
Line a large plate with paper towels. Pour olive oil into a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Once oil is hot and almost shimmering, put 4 of the patties in the pan and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook the second side for 3 to 4 minutes. Place cooked cakes on the lined plate to drain any excess oil. Repeat with remaining patties, adding a little extra oil as needed between batches if the cakes begin to stick.
Stack 1 or 2 pancakes on a plate and top with a fried egg or a generous dollop of herbed boat cheese and a spoonful of roasted tomatoes.
Makes 10 to 12 cakes.

  1. 5 ounces soft goat cheese
  2. 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  3. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  4. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
  5. A few grinds of black pepper
  6. 3 tablespoons milk
Put all ingredients except milk in a small bowl and use the back of a spoon to mash the herbs into the cheese. Add milk and stir vigorously to soften the cheese.
Slow-Roasted Tomatoes
So good, and so easy! They’re also delicious with scrambled eggs or tossed with pasta.
1 pound cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
A few grinds of black pepper
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Arrange tomatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil so each tomato is covered nicely. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until tomatoes become shriveled, a bit browned on the edges, and incredibly soft and juicy, about 2 hours. Stir every hour or so to ensure they’re still covered in olive oil.
Makes about 1 cup.
You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this simple morning porridge made with oat bran, just someone who’s looking for a nutritious dish to kick-start your day. Oat bran contains about 50 percent more fiber than oatmeal, making it more effective at lowering cholesterol and helping digestion. It also has more protein, calcium and iron.
This recipe is sweetened with cherries, vanilla and just a small amount of sugar. Almonds add crunch.


  1. 3 cups water
  2. 11 cups oat bran
  3. 2 cups fresh or thawed frozen cherries
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 2 teaspoons sugar
  7. 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) almonds, slivered
  8. Milk for serving (optional)
In a saucepan, bring water to boil over medium-high heat. Add oat bran and cook uncovered until mixture begins to thicken, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir periodically to keep oat bran from sticking to the pan.
While oats are cooking, cut each cherry in half and remove pit with a paring knife.
Season oat bran with salt, vanilla and sugar and stir to blend. Remove from heat and divide between two bowls. Top with cherries and almonds and a splash of your favorite milk, if desired.
Serves 2.
