Recipe Suggestions:
Carrots & Squash:
Our 9 year old made a fabulous dish last week with diced carrots, diced squash, sausage, onions, garlic, and salt. It won over even her squash-averse siblings. Serve on rice or pasta or on its own. Our most favorite way to enjoy squash is grilled. We slice it lengthwise into 1/3 inch slices and marinate for a couple of hours in a container with olive oil, salt, garlic, and basil. Even the squash-averse younger kids of ours devour this.
Tomatoes & Cilantro: The natural marriage here is fresh salsa. Dice tomatoes and combine with finely chopped cilantro and garlic. Sprinkle sea salt on top to taste. Devour with organic corn chips or on tacos.
Cucumbers: We were reminded by friends of the Classic Cucumber Salad with onions, vinegar, and sugar. We wholly support trying honey in place of the sugar. 🙂
Green Beans: We most love preparing green beans (some of which are actually yellow in color) simply, such as String Beans with Ginger & Garlic
Lettuce & Tomatoes: These two wonderful crops are only in season at the same time during early summer and then fall. So, while the gettings good for these two, we have to suggest BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato) sandwiches. Hint: They are most fabulous on our bread. Choose a good bacon or vegetarian alternative, and soak in the deliciousness.
