A white bowl filled with lamb kofte and parsley and tomato salad.

Lamb Kofte

Authentic lamb meatballs like you’d get in a Middle Eastern restaurant that are easy to make at home yet really quite hard to resist.

Three plates topped with spicy lamb meatballs, chickpeas, and arugula with three forks and two knives on the side.

Spicy Lamb Meatballs

Gorgeously spiced and juicy lamb meatballs are easier to prepare than you’d think. And when served with a creamy harissa yogurt sauce, they’re even easier to eat.

Sheet pan beef skewers piled on a foil-lined baking sheet with a dish of white sauce and lemon wedges.

Sheet Pan Beef Skewers

Minestrone Soup

An updated Italian classic made with all the usual suspects along with an unexpected drizzle of pesto that turns a frugal veggie-bin catch-all into something truly astounding.

Greek-style sheet pan chicken, olives, zucchini, and lemon slices on a sheet pan with a bowl of tzatziki nearby.

Greek-Style Sheet Pan Chicken

A piece of silken tofu with pine nuts and pickled chiles topped with cilantro in a blue ceramic bowl.

Silken Tofu with Pine Nuts and Pickled Chiles

“To call this silken tofu ‘magical’ would be an understatement.” and “Umami party for sure in your mouth!” and “My boyfriend, who dislikes tofu, ate most of it.” That’s what we’re hearing about this stunner.
