Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is so delicious as is, but I add 1/2 tsp of Penzy's light curry powder. It's for "beginners." lol I have started using dried beans, lentils, barley, etc. and soaking them overnight and it's not really more work than canned beans, and they taste better and have a better consistency. Soaking them overnight makes them creamier without falling apart, so I read and tested the theory myself. I have an immersion/stick blender that I use every chance I get, and a little swirling smashes up some beans/lentils but not all, to make a creamy, thick broth with texture.

Tuna Twist

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
