I probably should have done this post during our most recent heat wave, but still these are some things I've been making lately when it's too hot to turn on the oven. And they are all super-healthy recipes and use a lot of the things you may be growing in your plot at the garden.
Pasta a la Meg
I call this Pasta a la Meg because my friend Meg shared the recipe with me. It's so incredibly easy and good--and is made mostly with things most of us grow in our gardens.
Cut up about 1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes. I have yellow and red ones in my plot, which makes this nice and colorful. Slice about 3 to 4 tablespoons of basil leaves and add to the tomatoes. Add about 6 tablespoons olive oil and a teaspoon of sea salt and let sit.
Boil some whole wheat spaghetti per directions and then top with tomato mixture and a healthy handful of grated pecorino cheese. Yummy!
Raw Beet, Carrot, and Apple Salad
This is so delicious. I confess I don't even like beets and I LOVE this. It comes from the blog Allergy-Free Alaska http://www.allergyfreealaska.com/2013/01/22/raw-beet-carrot-apple-salad-with-ginger-lime-dressing/
