Recipe: Trader Joe’s Shawarma Chicken Hummus BowlsRecipes
Come wintertime, there’s just something so comforting about eating dinner from a bowl. Maybe it’s how cozy the ingredients are, all nestled together in a small space, or perhaps it’s the fact that bowl food is the type of food that’s perfectly suited to eating on the couch. (I think it’s mostly the latter, to be honest.) So yes, it’s totally acceptable to eat these hummus bowls from the comfort of your own couch this evening.

Recipe: One-Pot Smoked Almond and Herb CouscousRecipes
This side dish is so smoky and fragrant, you may find yourself pushing aside the main course so that you can focus your attention on it. Smoked paprika not only lends its intense flavor to the couscous, but it also adds color, creating the most beautiful golden hue. Toasted sliced almonds add textural crunch to the dish (something that is all too often missing in plain ol’ couscous), and a slew of chopped fresh parsley brings its pop of green freshness to the equation.

This Is the Best Tahini You Can Buy in the StatesGroceries
For years, all I knew of tahini was the single brand available to me at my local grocery store — the contents were as dusty as the tin itself. The paste, made from sesame seeds and oil, was chalky and so cement-like that I could never get the separated oil to blend back in. I was close to giving up on tahini altogether. Then one evening, while living abroad, an Israeli friend had me over for dinner.

Recipe: Simplest Spiced Lamb StewRecipes
This is the light, fragrant stew created with spring celebrations in mind. Unlike the rich beef stews you cozied up with in winter, this one opts for a subtly spiced, brothy base studded with ultra-tender chunks of lamb and vegetables. It’s casual enough for a simple Sunday supper, although if you spoon it over a bowl of buttery couscous and top with a splash of fresh herbs, it becomes the centerpiece of a dinner party.

Recipe: Zereshk Polow (Persian Barberry Rice)Recipes

It’s the perfect accompaniment for our most beloved national holiday. Unless, of course, you don’t like stuffing.
