Better Homes & Gardens March 2016 Recipes

Lentil Soup with Lemon & Dill
The newest recipes from Better Homes and Gardens are all about classics with a twist. We're celebrating purple veggies, lox, and classic brioche bread. Plus, we've got fast and fresh recipes for dinner tonight.

Cornmeal Cakes with Berry-Fig Chutney

This zesty chutney is super easy to make. While we love it on these cornmeal cakes, it's just as good in a PB&J or piled on a wedge of good cheddar cheese. 

Vietnamese Pork Meatballs

These insanely flavorful meatballs are the stuff of weeknight dinner dreams. They're healthy, ready in just 35 minutes, and served with a refreshing veggie-packed salad. 

Purple Potato Soup

The color is showstopping, but the flavor of this creamy potato soup is what will really wow you. Fresh marjoram, pomegranate juice, and garlic make it extra memorable. We like to serve it with a swirl of sour cream. 

Lemon Brioche

Good things, like this classic French bread, take time. But the buttery crust and feathery interior are worth every single minute. 

Beet Hummus

Let's put a new (and colorful) spin on classic hummus. We've swapped garbanzos for cannellini beans and added horseradish and beets. Top the bowl with kimchi for bolder flavor. 

Crispy Cornmeal Shrimp Sandwich

You can have crispy shrimp without the deep fryer hassle. You need only 1/4 inch of oil and a frying pan for the win. 

Nicoise-Style Lox Salad

When it comes to salad, nicoise is our hands down fave. Give the classic dish new life with lox and a zesty champagne dressing. 

Barely Roasted Purple Vegetables

A drizzle of sweet honey, butter, and thyme is what all roasted veggies have been missing. 

Bagel & Lox Skillet Strata

Rethink classic bagels and lox for a crowd. Simply stir together the ingredients for this skillet strata and bake. Serve each slice with creme fraiche, capers, and fresh dill. 

Cauliflower Gratin

Put a striking side dish on the table. This showy purple cauliflower and potato gratin may look unique, but it's filled with familiar comfort food flavors like Gruyere cheese and buttery bread crumbs. 

Cold Lox Noodle Bowl

You love noodle bowls. You love lox. How about a lox noodle bowl? Spice up the cured fish with fresh ginger, jalapeno, and radish. 

Spring Salad with Grapefruit & Feta

Think spring with this refreshing dinner salad. The key to keeping it interesting: texture! Use a mix of lettuces, cucumbers, fennel, and grapefruit. 

Spiced Kohlrabi Oven Chips

We say kohlrabi is the new kale. These extra-crispy chips are sprinkled with cumin and coriander for big flavor. Serve them with cocktails, beer, or even champagne. 

Lentil Soup with Lemon & Dill

Just when you thought lentil soup was boring, we added fresh lemon and dill. Serve it with plain yogurt for some tang.
