Fresh, healthy recipes in the middle of winter

Help! I'm in a cooking rut after the holidays, and I need some fresh recipes to kick-start the year. Not quite ready to start eating a bunch of salad suppers, but definitely tired of rich, heavy food. What are you all making these days?

This is one of my favorites and the grape tomatoes are pretty good year round:

My suggestion: chicken pho. A fragrant and light broth, rice noodles, slices of chicken, and fresh herbs. Warm, filling, but somehow light. Serious Eat posted a quick recipe this week. Check it out.

One thing I do is buy an overload of greens at the farmer's market and then challenge myself to use up every scrap ... and I spend a lot of time searching right here on Food52!!!

Big ol' sheet pans of roasted veggies and Ina Garten's fabulous oven-baked risotto are my staples right now. Recently made Fuchsia Dunlop's gong bao ("Kung pao") chicken though and the hubby and I are OBSESSED - had it twice just last week lol.

We eat a lot of soups in our house. And lately, homemade pizzas.
