I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Good 3.6/5

This Asian-inspired pasta dish is so good and so quick to make and can be served hot or cold. Add some tofu for another healthy option.

Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

Incredible! 5.0/5

If you don't like vinegar, you won't like this. When we make Italian dressing from the Good Seasons packets, we reverse the oil and vinegar amounts. Simple, right? You could probably cook with this too. If you like vinegar.

Hummus
Very Good 4.0/5
(548 ratings)

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

I can't believe I've been making this since 1984, but it's that good. It's easy to alter, adding or subtracting serving sizes - I make huge batches, but this is a single serving. It is also incredibly easy to make. The hardest part is seeding and peeling the tomatoes.
