Roasted Brussels Sprouts
So delicious! But I roasted them at 425 instead of 400 and they came out nice and crispy. I also cut each brussel in half.

Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Mint
This recipe is phenomenal - tastes just like at the Turkish restaurant I go to. I used 1/2 cup of quinoa in place of the bulgar and rice. I used 3/4 cup of red lentils. I needed to up the liquid to 55 oz of chicken broth. Threw in a few extra dashes of all the spices (and added some extra onion powder and garlic powder). 3 cloves of garlic. Used 3 TBS of tomato paste and 1 plum tomato diced by hand instead of the diced tomatoes. SO DELICIOUS!

Black Bean Hummus
With the following tweaks, this recipe is 5 stars. I used lime juice instead of lemon. Dropped the tahini to 1 tbs (only because I don't like a strong tahini flavor). Upped the cumin to 1 tsp. Used 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil. Reduced salt to 1/4 tsp and used kosher salt (the salt in the bean liquid is good enough). Added a dash of onion powder and garlic powder, and used the rest of the spices as indicated in the recipe. And the most important addition of all - 1/4 cup of cilantro!! SO DELICIOUS! I think this is going to be my go-to quick recipe for parties.
