A Flawless Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Freekeh Grain Salad, Pita Pockets, and Squash & Lemongrass Soup

New Recipes From The Kitchn

This week we focused on all things lunch: from comforting sandwiches (helllooo grilled cheese!), to a fresh freekeh salad that has us dreaming of spring picnics. It's time to put down the lunch takeout menu, and start cooking. We've got your back. If you're looking for an easy lunch you can prep ahead of time, definitely try the whole wheat pita pockets with romaine, beets, and chicken. If slow simmering soup is more your style, try the cozy squash and lemongrass number. And no matter, pour yourself a 2-ingredient Black Velvet cocktail for St. Patrick’s Day.
