One of our Train with Grain racers, Mark Swartzendruber (bio below) made this great video for us to show you how he makes Chana Dal Hummus. I thought this was perfect for Meatless Mondays. One of my favorite vegetarian stand-bys when eating out is the mezze plate. In my experience, it’s hard to mess up and never comes with meat. I would also wager that it’s most likely gluten free if you skip the pita bread, but be sure to ask- you never know where gluten might lurk.
Make your own mezze dinner by pairing this unique hummus recipe with fresh pita bread, kalamata olives, feta cheese, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Take it up a notch by making these tasty falafel patties and tzatziki sauce for a fantastic cool meal perfect for those scorching summer nights.
If you’re not familiar with Train with Grain, check it out. You still have loads of time to sign up and train for an upcoming cycling race or triathlon. We’ll be adding more cyclocross events as the fall kicks into full swing. If those are not your sports, but you think you’d like to sign up anyway, go ahead- I won’t tell. Our team of racers have loads of good information for training, no matter what your sport and we’ve been updating with their new content almost every day.
