Curried Split Pea Soup

Susan’s serving suggestion: I like this recipe with cauliflower added. After removing the lid, I add about 1 pound of chopped cauliflower, replace the lid, and heat over low heat until the cauliflower is just cooked, about 5 minutes. This also works with frozen chopped cauliflower.

Chickpeas in Eggplant-Tahini Sauce

In this unusual dish, my starting point has been the Tunisian kitchen, where chickpeas are a staple and tabil–a spice mix of caraway and coriander seeds plus hot Chile pepper–is the much loved equivalent of India’s curry blend.

Lentil Barley Soup

Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup.

Gingery Split Pea Soup

Chipotle chile provides the essential smokiness while the sliced ginger offers only a background hint of flavor. Cooked to a golden creaminess, the split peas are enhanced with sautéed, almost carmelized, vegetables and finished with a little miso, which contributes its distinctive richness.

Border Beans

This is my vegetarian version of a recipe from my late mother-in-law, Ruth Clark. I use it as a basic bean recipe for any Mexican dish, but I always make a huge pot because I could honestly eat them every day. They’re delicious with crusty bread and a green salad.
