Slow-Roasted Mechoui (Moroccan-Spiced Leg of Lamb)
I was lucky enough to nab a leg of organic, sustainably-raised lamb from Montana's Willow Spring Ranch at Shelton's Market for this and was rewarded with succulent, juicy meat spiked through with spice. To find a source for grass-fed lamb (and other meats) near you for your Easter meal, check out Eat Wild. Serve this with quinoa, mixed greens, sliced black olives, thick slices of orange, thinly sliced fennel and red onion tossed with the dressing from this salad here.
Beef and Barley Stew with Kohlrabi and Carrots
Brothy Lentil, Sausage and Farfalle Soup
Take that name to mean anything you please ... whether you make this soup out of chicken stock, turkey stock or vegetable stock, you can bet it'll be scrumptious. What elevates this above a standard chicken (turkey ... veggie) noodle soup are the copious amounts of carrots and celery, the beefy lentils, and the fun little topping of sauteed root veggies and sausage. PS - you can make this vegetarian and still have a super hearty soup.
