During the summer, more than any other time of the year, we want to eat simply. So this week I’ve got recipes for you that are simple vegan recipes for beginners. So good dinner guests will love them.
This week’s organic vegetable delivery box had bean sprouts, Shishedo peppers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, green onions, arugula, corn, cilantro, carrots, cherry tomatoes.
We are in week 24, which is the last week of this delivery season.
It’s been quite an experience doing this series of unboxing videos and creating or finding good tasting, healthy recipes for what very often was repetitive ingredients.
When I decided to do this 24 weeks ago I had no idea how much effort it would take to find all those recipes.
There are foods that I love, like eggplant, that I won’t want to see for a while after having it so many weeks in a row with this delivery service.
No, I won’t be doing this same delivery next year. There just wasn’t enough variety for me.
There is still one small farmer’s market that goes through the summer where I can get organic veggies.
As the demand from Cabo locals and tourists increases, we are now seeing more organics at Costco and at local chain grocery stores. But the availability is still limited.
Nothing beats eating food that has just come out of the ground less than 24 hours beforehand.
Getting the delivery forces you to eat vegetables you might not normally eat if you picked them yourselves.
People have a habit of sticking to what’s familiar.
This week I want to share a couple ways to use tomatoes in a fresh, light summer way.
If you no longer eat cheese, this is a great way to still have a Caprese salad with that creamy mouthfeel.
This is so quick and easy to pull together and yet it can be an elegant addition to a simple dinner, or just with a bottle of wine.
You do want to plan ahead because the flavors meld together by allowing it to sit for an hour before you eat it.
Quick, simple and so fresh tasting!
Both of these vegetables are so good for you! And this couldn’t be easier. Make it in your toaster oven to cut down on the heat in your kitchen this summer.
These quick and easy summer recipes wrap up our 24 weeks.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes. I’d love to hear from you to see what you’ve liked best.
I’ll still be bringing you plenty of vegan recipes. You can find them all here.
Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.
Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
