Make this bowl with a batch of our Perfect Quinoa. It captures the essence of a warm slice of apple pie but won’t send you into midmorning nap mode. Feel free to swap the ricotta for Greek yogurt, if desired.

Boring potatoes these are not, thanks to flavor-packed stir-ins. Leeks add gut-friendly prebiotic fiber to this dish; a smart amount of center-cut bacon imparts smoky, salty undertones. Be sure to pick up Yukon Gold potatoes; their higher starch content yields a fluffier, creamier mash.
