Peach, Cucumber, and Tomato Bread Salad with Smashed-Walnut Vinaigrette
Creamy Pasta with Crispy Mushrooms
Cauliflower and Tomato Ragù Over Polenta with Crispy Rosemary
If you have veg-forward eaters coming to your Sunday dinner, you better make a batch of this vegetarian ragù, which uses cauliflower in place of ground meat. Serve the mixture over a hot bowl of polenta, and you've got a meal that will satisfy your guests for hours — well, at least until dessert.

This isn't your traditional Sunday dinner recipe. In this spin on stir-fry, you'll find bright flavors from fresh basil and peppers, chunks of pork, and crispy summer squash.
Chili-Spiced Chickpea Pie
Black Bean, Orange, and Feta Sweet Potatoes
Mushroom-Buckwheat Stuffed Peppers with Za'atar and Mustardy Aioli
The buckwheat and mushroom filling and distinctive Cubanelle peppers give this classic dish a healthy, modern twist. Can't find buckwheat? Sub your favorite whole grain, such as farro or quinoa, into this Sunday dinner recipe instead. (And if you've got too much buckwheat to handle, try this delicious dutch baby recipe.)
Chicken-Quinoa Meatballs with Kabocha Squash and Yogurt Sauce
Beef and breadcrumbs may be the standard for meatballs, but this chicken-quinoa version is going to become your go-to for Sunday dinners. Along with those two staples, you'll need a few different spices for flavor and fresh veggies to turn the dish into a filling meal. (If you're vegan, opt for these meat-free varieties.)
