Spicy Lentil Soup — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, December 12th, 2011

Ready in just 35 minutes, this warm and hearty bowl gets its heat from a serrano chile pepper, its robust flavor from garlic, fresh ginger and ground turmeric, and its thick consistency from boiled red lentils. Dollop with tangy Greek yogurt for a refreshingly cool contrast.

For an easy, non-leafy salad, try Food Network Magazine’s Warm Farro Salad, made with roasted sweet cherry tomatoes and vibrant squash. Barley is a go-to substitute if you can’t find farro at your supermarket.

Taleggio Panini — Meatless Monday

I simply can’t say enough good things about Taleggio cheese. At once nutty, salty, rich, creamy and decadent, it only gets better when it is melted and becomes soft and smooth. To make the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich that is literally oozing with gooey goodness, combine Taleggio with a light tomato sauce on slices of thick, rustic bread and lightly grill with butter. Quick enough to make on a weekday and hearty enough to be served as a simple supper, this easy, cheesy recipe will become a family favorite.

For a light side dish, try Aarti’s Massaged Kale Salad, tossed with fresh, ripe mango pieces and crunchy pumpkin seeds.
