Quinoa is the perfect vehicle for summer vegetables: it's more substantial than couscous or rice and it kind of binds ingredients together. This simple version involves minimal cooking: just toss hot quinoa with black beans, chunks of ripe heirloom tomatoes, and crunchy scallions, and cover with a refreshing lemon dressing.
Pesto is a secret weapon to save you prep time while imparting an unmistakable depth of flavor. Made with basil, olive oil, garlic, parmesan, and sometimes pine nuts or walnuts (there are many bottled nut-free options), it is a natural fit for a meatball. Adding meatballs to a pizza is a fun and simple way to make a one-dish meal that everyone in the family will love. Click here to visit the new home of KitchenDaily!
The traditional version of this classic Moroccan stew is made with homemade preserved lemons and involves a long cooking time. We've simplified the recipe by using lemon rind and juice to achieve the same subtle lemon flavor. Ours is also slow-simmered to yield a rich broth like the original's, but it's made in a fraction of the time. Since this dish is so saucy, it's best served over couscous.
