Pulsing rolled oats with eggs, banana, brown sugar and oil creates the moist dough of these chocolaty muffins without a bit of all-purpose flour.

Air-Fryer Crispy Chickpeas


Air-fried chickpea snacks are intensely flavored and incredibly crunchy. Drying the chickpeas is essential to a good crunch, so don’t skip this step. If you have time, leave them out on the counter to dry for an hour or two before frying.



Yogurt with Beets (Borani Chogondar)


Borani, a Middle Eastern yogurt dip, can be made with anything from spinach to eggplant to carrots. This recipe gets its shockingly pink color from grated beets. Make it ahead–the longer it sits, the better it tastes. Read more about this recipe.
