Summer Recipes that Make You Go Mmmm: Bethenny's Peas and Lentils


Lots of people make the mistake of serving peas exactly as they come. With some minor tweaks, your peas will impress your guests and taste a lot fancier:

Canned peas
1/4 cup chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste

Heat up peas. Sauté onions in pan. Add peas. Add salt and pepper.


If you're like Bethenny, you're not always in the mood to eat something elaborate in warm weather. This simple lentils recipe is a totally vegan treat that's fortifying, easy to make, and friggin' yummy:

Melissa’s Steamed, Ready to Eat Lentils
1/2 cup chopped sweet pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Heat up lentils. Sauté peppers in olive oil in large pan. Add lentils, cumin, and cilantro. Sauté.
