Lentil soup is easy to improvise on a chilly night. Even better, it's hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
Spaghetti squash, sage pesto and white beans combine for a hearty meatless entree or side dish.
This zesty, summery dish comes together in a flash when you use steamed, ready-to-eat black-eyed peas and precooked brown rice. A perfect summer salad or side.
I waffled about whether to name this 'hummus' or 'chickpea dip', but ultimately thought it veered far enough from tradition to go with the latter. It is, in any case, delicious. If you've ever had any doubt as to the strength of pounded garlic, this little dish will set you straight.
