Dahl And Rice
I’m focusing on the Dhal in this recipe because it is hands down, delish. This is a spin on my mom’s dahl recipe. She used yellow split peas but I use red lentils. They cook much faster and have a more creamy texture.
Wild Rice Stuffed Honeynut Squash
We’re adding to our list of creative and yummy ways to use squash this season! Here we had fun with a new type of squash, honeynut squash. Think butternut squash, but smaller. We decided to combine two loved side ingredients, rice and squash, into one festive and flavorful holiday side.

I love eggplant and I consistently have them in my kitchen thanks to my garden. Eggplants are extremely versatile and are easy to dress up with some flavor, especially spice blends!
