Well folks, Nutrition Month is half baked as the theme cooking is featured!

Make your food dollar go farther. Put more plant-based protein in your pot.

Cooking with protein-rich choices, such as lentils, black beans or chickpeas, is a healthy way to lower the cost per serving of your meals. Extend ground meat or go meatless with these ideas:

  • Stir up yummy minestrone soup with black beans, chickpeas or lentils – no meat needed!
  • Make a quick chickpea curry for a totally meatless option
  • Add a couple of cups of cooked lentils to ground beef for luscious lasagna
  • Drain and rinse a can of black beans. Add to ground turkey for tasty tacos.
