Israeli Hummus Dip
This hummus starts with dried garbanzo beans. Cooking them yourself, instead of using canned, makes all the difference.
These hearty cookies are brimming with almonds, oats and, if you like, whole-wheat flour.
Garlic Lentil Hummus
Boiling lentils is almost as easy as opening canned beans to make homemade hummus—but cheaper and the cook can adjust the sodium. Stir in any garden-fresh herb and serve with produce from the farmer’s market.
Clementine marmalade makes a particularly good filling for these springy muffins, but any citrus flavor works well.
Whole Wheat Scones
Scones are best eaten on the day they're made and are delicious warm from the oven.
