Sweet potato and tender greens (choose from spinach, arugula, watercress, or tatsoi) synergize nicely in this quick miso soup. I prefer mellow white miso as the base for this soup, but use whatever variety of miso you like best, such as dark and hearty hatcho or barley miso. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Black-eyed peas and quinoa make a hearty pair, embellished with lots of flavorful tomatoes. Try serving this with Chili Cheese Grits or fresh corn, and a simple coleslaw or salad. If you can, do try the liquid smoke or mesquite seasoning, either of which add a subtle smoky flavor. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.
