Red Lentil Rice Cakes with Cilantro Pesto
If you’re looking for a festive meatless snack to jazz up your holiday spread, these rice cakes are just the thing! Red lentils and bell peppers add scarlet flecks to the lightly fried cakes, while a verdant cilantro pesto compliments the dish with both flavor and flair.
Fontina and Mascarpone Baked Pasta
The nutty flavor of fontina and creaminess of mascarpone create a delicious updated version of mac and cheese. If your supermarket doesn't stock mascarpone cheese, substitute full-fat cream cheese. For a dinner party, bake the pasta in individual gratin dishes.
Leek & Lemon Linguine
This simple pasta recipe has bold lemony flavor. It’s nice with a salad for a light supper or serve it along with seared fish, shrimp or chicken. Vary it as you please—add a bit of crumbled goat cheese, chopped rinsed capers, shelled edamame or thin strips of yellow bell pepper.

Chickpea and Broccoli Masala Curry
If there was ever a dish that one would propose marriage to on a misty fall evening, this would be it. Just enough bite of chili balanced with the creaminess of blended cashews and crunchy fresh broccoli and a smattering of cilantro to garnish. Mouthfuls of matrimony.
