Minted Cantaloupe Soup
(no ratings)

Excellent source of Vitamins A and C.

Cool and refreshing summer soup that you can prepare a day ahead of time. Actual time spent preparing is way less than 25 minutes. Use the down time to read, do some crunches, whatever!

For a change of pace, substitute basil for the mint or substitute 3 cups peaches, 1 cup strawberries for the cantalope.

(I forgot to save a sprig of mint for garnish so I plunked a sprig of cilantro on top for the recipe photo)

Herbed Bulgur and Lentil Salad
Very Good 4.3/5

This recipe is part of "The SparkPeople Cookbook." Order your copy today! This salad is even better the longer it sits in the fridge, so we love to make a big batch of it and eat it throughout the week.

It sounds like an insane amount of garlic for any vegetable dish. It isn't. The garlic gets roasted and becomes very sweet. You can adjust cooking times if you like your vegetables less crisp.
