Summer is officially here! These corn cakes are the first dish I make every year around this time to kick off the season. They have all the flavors of summer combined into one delicious dish. We usually eat them as a meal all on their own but recently I made them to go with my Grilled Vegetables over Farro it was the perfect match. What is the one dish you make to kick off summer?
- 3 ear yellow corn
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
- 1 tbsp. diced jalapeno
I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today. Now that summertime is almost here that means an ample supply of fresh vegetables. Grilled vegetables, at least twice a week, are a must in our house. I am always trying to come up with new ways to serve them. My first thought was to try to create a grilled vegetable salad. Then, I thought why not serve the grilled veggie over farro, it’s the perfect grain to soak up all the flavor of a vinaigrette. This is now my favorite way to eat my veggie.
- 1/2 lb. Asparagus
- 1 Red Pepper
This is one of those things where I am slapping my head with frustration on why I waited so long to roast cauliflower. I don’t hate cauliflower – it’s just usually not something I dash out to the store to buy. Until I started using Green Bean Delivery Service! If you have not heard of them, I highly encourage you to check them out. They deliver fresh organic produce right to your door. How amazing is that? This is the most simple and delicious side dish I have made in a long time. The Parmesan cheese gives it a little extra flavor that takes it right to the top.
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
Ok guys I have a confession…this is my first time making granola. I’m not sure why I waited so long since I eat yogurt and granola for breakfast practically every morning. One of the main reasons why I have not made my own granola is because a lot of the recipes I’ve seen call for a lot of ingredients. Most of which I usually don’t keep in my pantry. This is one of the easiest recipes plus it only calls for a few simple ingredients which was a real winner in my book. Now that I have finally made my own granola there will be a new batch in my oven on a weekly basis.
