    You mean could you make a lentil salad with those seasonings? I don't see why not. You could even puree half, or a third, and use that as the dressing for the rest. Or you could eat your hummus with carrot sticks.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Mrs. Piob recently made a lentil salad and it was exceedingly good. The carbs from legumes, as long as the portions are modest, are not ones that impact my dietary regime. Finding ways to use legumes in easy recipes is something I'm trying to do.

    Expand your vegetable horizons a bit as well. And most things really aren't hard to make. Some things are hard to make pretty, but that isn't really a problem, and some things can be quite hard to shop fo, which is a problem, but be willing to try new veggies.


    Sorry to hear that.

    I had a food processor but I never used it so I gave it to my neighbor. Space is a premium in my small kitchen.

    That's a crime. You should occupy Williams-Sonoma. ;)

    Heat 3T Olive Oil in dutch oven until hot but not smoking, pat 8 chicken drumsticks dry and season well with S&P. Brown chicken in batches until golden all around, and remove chicken. Stir in 1 large chopped onion, 3T of chopped fresh cilantro, 3t of minced garlic, 1t coriander, 1t of ras el hanout and cook until onion is softened, about 5 or 6 minutes (add a little chicken stock if needed to prevent sticking). Add 2 cups of chicken stock and return chicken to dutch oven. Cook at a bare simmer, covered for 30 minutes, removing cover to stir occasionally. Add 1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas, 1/2 cup of golden raisins, 1/2 -1t of harissa, zest of one small orange, and cook uncovered for 5 more minutes. serve over couscous and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro.

    General Question: when measuring chopped herbs do you pack them into the measuring spoon or is a lighter touch required?

    What are you making? I would just season to taste. But if the recipe specifically calls for a cup of "packed" herbs, then I would press them gently into the measuring cup. Otherwise, I would just make a rough measurement. Unless you're measuring flour for a cake, it really doesn't have to be exact.

    I was just referencing MarBear's recipe above and the actual technique of measuring chopped herbs.
