Step one: Make a super simple dal of creamy red lentils seasoned with turmeric, lemon juice, and salt—all you need is a saucepan and a whisk—and warm up some cooked rice from that big container ..read more

Y’all know I love my chickpeas, and y’all have probably figured out by now that a squeeze of lemon takes pretty much any dish up a notch. Enter my Lemony Chickpea Soup! It’s especially perfect for cool, sunny spring days, but honestly, you’ll catch me enjoying it all year round. (Yes, even during the summer when warm soups make me sweat a bit. It’s that good!). The secret to this soup’s delights is pretty simple. Instead of tossing in whole chickpeas right from the can, I puree them. I promise the puree tastes amazing even though it looks a bit like baby food (sorry, babies).   The ..read more

Saag Aloo

There’s something deeply comforting about a Saag Aloo recipe. Maybe it’s the pillowy soft potatoes, silky leafy greens, or the warming Indian spices – whatever it is, I’m on board! Who knew the simple combination of potatoes and greens could taste SO good?? Just like Aloo Gobi, saag aloo is a classic Indian dish that’s nourishing and filling enough to be served as a main or side dish. I stray a little ways away from the traditional version, though, which sautés and steams the potatoes. By roasting the potatoes instead, they take on the most indulgent buttery yet crisp texture that makes every ..read more
