This is a very loose recipe, but one that I make a lot. This is a good way to use up a lot of vegetables and great for a quick weeknight dinner.

This is a Real Simple recipe.
Most Sundays I cook a big batch of something protein-rich to eat for dinner throughout the week. This was one of my more successful attempts: its deliciously complex and the flavors kept up over a few days in the refrigerator (probably due to the scallion and lime wedge toppings). Most of the ingredients are pantry staples and I think that other vegetables could be added to make this even more wholesome.
Panzanella, or bread salad, is a great way to get rid of stale bread and take advantage of gorgeous summer tomatoes.
This is a loose recipe that can be adapted based on what you have on hand. I had two leftover dinner rolls and could think of no better use for them than this salad. It is simple, hearty, and delicious.

I love broccoli, and this is my favorite way to prepare it. It’s lemony, a little spicy, and a little crispy. This is meant to be a side dish, but sometimes I eat a whole batch for dinner. Yes, more than a pound of broccoli for dinner. Yes, I’m a little odd. But you should try it!
I can’t believe I’m really presenting this as a “recipe.”
There are three ways I could pitch this.
First, I could emphasize that there are only three ingredients, which is far fewer than in microwave popcorn. But fewer ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean its any healthier.
Second, I could emphasize that this recipe is so simple that a monkey could follow it, assuming that a monkey knows enough about stovetop safety. But let’s be honest, sticking a bag the right side down in the microwave is obviously easier than this method.
Third, I could emphasize how cheap this recipe is. Microwave popcorn is surprisingly expensive. However, unless you eat a lot of popcorn, the difference only amounts to a few dollars.
Instead I will just say that this is how I make popcorn and I like it, so you should try it.

These roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite snacks. I usually have some in an airtight container in my cabinet at all times. I throw them on soups and in salad for a little crunch and eat them plain. In some ways, they’re like an adult version of corn nuts.
