Farfalle with Roasted Red Peppers & Parsley
We call this a 15-minute recipe because you can prep all the ingredients in the time it takes the water to boil. That’s my kind of weeknight meal! We love the butterfly shaped pasta, but you could use fusilli or other shapes. The jarred roasted red peppers are a convenient pantry staple, and don’t forget the capers for their briny addition. The dish is vegan as is but is also lovely with a shower of Parmesan cheese. Get the recipe for Farfalle With Roasted Red Peppers & Parsley.
Lentil Salad with Greens & Yogurt
Our Lentil Salad with Greens & Yogurt is a great way to incorporate lentils into your meals; they are high in protein and fiber and satisfying. This “salad” is great eaten with a fork but even better with some plain or toasted baguette. Scoop up the yogurt, lentils and greens and spread them on the bread or, better yet, use the bread to draw through the mess-on-the plate to function as an edible “fork”. Get the recipe for Lentil Salad with Greens & Yogurt.
