A pilaf to please everyone—it’s a little sweet, a little tart, and a little savory. Quinoa is another great source of soluble fiber; spinach provides beta-carotene and vitamin C; and ginger, turmeric, and cherries all contain anti-inflammatory compounds. For good fats, add 3 tablespoons hempseed to the quinoa after cooking.
