Grains & Legumes
Lentils with old vegetables from the back of the crisper drawer make a delicious, filling, and inexpensive meal.
Substitute frozen spinach or kale for fresh and this is a quick, healthy, and satisfying pantry dish!
Inexpensive, low in calories, and high in fiber and protein — Dal is a “trifecta” food! There are so many ways to cook Dal. So aside from the basics (ginger, garlic, and some kind of curry), it’s a perfect dish to clean out the veggie drawer and create something new each time. Substitutes to try: old carrots, a random parsnip, the summer overload of zucchini, aging red pepper, etc. Be creative and make it your own!
Change out the veggies in this recipe depending on season - asparagus, peas and arugula and farro were in the original version.
