A curated list of links is always helpful, especially when it comes to finding recipes on the Internet. We thought we would share with you some recipes we have bookmarked and tested in our kitchens. Nothing too complicated, but all relevant to what’s in season now. Enjoy!

Zucchini Rice Gratin – This is a delicious dish made with brown rice that can be served as a meal. We have no adaptations, except that you may want to double the recipe because it is so good.

Pantry Curried Quinoa Garbanzo Beans and Roasted Pepper – The title of this recipe uses the word pantry because you may already have all of the ingredients on hand. Adaptation: We prefer to use water instead of vegetable broth and if you do not have all the ingredients, an adapted version of this (i.e., we did not use raisins) is still be delicious.

Smoky Eggplant Puree – This is a quick recipe that is similar to baba ganoush, but without the tahini or sesame oil. We used red pepper flakes instead of urfa pepper, which we have yet to find. Serve it as an appetizer or side to a meal.

Beet Avocado Salad with Fresh Mozzarella and Fennel – So many favorite things in this dish!

Warm Zucchini, Corn and Black Bean Salad – Easy as a side, and our kids love it.
