Feta with Spiced Lentils, Chickpeas, and Red Onion
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! Canned legumes don’t always need to be boring, and with this recipe, they could be considered a sort of rustic elegance. 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.
