Quick and Easy Spiced Legumes with Feta and Onions

This is an ultimate favorite pantry recipe! Made with canned cannelini beans, chickpeas, and pre-cooked lentils, it makes for a simple, quick weeknight meal, but is also a great dish when entertaining!

Layer depth of flavor with the spiced olive oil using our ground cinnamon and ground cloves, bring some freshness with the lemon zest and creaminess from the feta.
