Honey-Goat Cheese Phyllo Triangles

Honey-Goat Cheese Phyllo Triangles

These crowd-pleasing pastries can be served as an hors d'oeuvre or drizzled with extra honey and sprinkled with chopped nuts for a light dessert. Thaw phyllo overnight in the refrigerator so that it doesn't dry out. Another trick is to cover the sheets with a damp kitchen towel when you place them on the work surface so they stay moist before using.

Vegan Moussaka

Spicy Chickpea Dip

Spicy Chickpea Dip

Taking the tahini (sesame paste) out of this hummus variation makes it a low-fat dip that’s still full of flavor. Toasting whole cumin seeds and then grinding them to a powder adds a smoky flavor you can’t get from preground cumin. Serve with pita crisps and raw veggies.
