The stuff of spring

A quick weeknight meal
Tiffany Armstrong and Kate Washington

Retro dishes like stuffed peppers might remind us of long hours in the kitchen, but these can be on the table surprisingly fast. Overflowing with lamb and couscous, they're light and satisfying at the same time. Lemony fattoush, a Middle Eastern salad with crunchy pocket-bread chips, matches the mood. And a frothy, milk-based frappé ends the meal on a simple, healthy note.
