  11. My favorite vegan recipe for summer changes every time I find a new recipe, but an old standby is a pinto bean salad with fresh corn, tomatoes, roasted poblanos, citrus vinaigrette, maybe some pepitas, and whatever other summery goodness I can think to add.

    Open Face Fresh tomato sandwich. Lightly toast your favorite bread. I use a yogurt spread ( you can use your favorite) first add tomato, top with fresh cheese of choice and garlic, sea salt a sprig of basil. Put in broiler and cook until cheese is melted.
    For added bite and flavor can add cayenne pepper to taste.. Or a dash of dill. Your spice cupboard gone wild for fun.

  26. Favorite summer recipe? Salad, fresh from my garden, and salt potatoes. What are salt potatoes? New, baby potatoes, any color, well scrubbed and boiled in very, very salty water. Drain them, melt some Earth Balance or really good Olive Oil over them, and serve with freshly grated pepper. Heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  27. In the heart of summer there is nothing better than fresh tomatoes. Below is a meal I have prepared for my friends and they loved it (and P.S....never missed the meat)!

    Bruschetta with lots of garlic and basil on toasted homemade bread and salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions, carrot and cilantro. I love the fruits of the garden with bright citrus vinaigrette!

    Asparagus with a zest of lemon and EVOO is wonderful with mushroom popovers with fresh rosemary.

    Berry cobble is the ultimate treat of summer. Fresh mixed berries with a touch of agave, fresh ground nutmeg and a little yogurt. Perfect!

    And yea...I want a lovely Pinot Noir to go with it! :-)

    My lips are smacking...I need to get in the kitchen!

  30. Kale chips! Our entire family loves them! I have a fantastic, savory recipe from my mother in law that everyone loves, even my junk food loving friends. Even though I have to fight off the husband, three year-old and one year-old to get some, it's totally worth it.

  31. One of my absolute favorite things to enjoy in the summer is a flavorful fruit salad. It contains chopped cucumbers, mango, jicama , and oranges. It is then drizzled with fresh lemon juice, a pinch of salt and a bit of cayenne. This salad is so refreshing , healthy and tasty!
