10 Summer Recipes for Meatless Mondays
Make the most of the season's produce with these 10 easy, vegetarian summer recipes from our kitchens.
Sweet grape tomatoes, basil, garlic and organic oregano give this dish a classic Mediterranean flavor while the savory, protein-packed filling of our tri-color quinoa blend, cannellini beans, and slivered almonds make it satisfying enough for dinner. Make 1-2 days ahead and store in the refrigerator before baking.
Tamari is soy sauce's dark, handsome Japanese cousin. Unlike soy sauce, tamari is also gluten-free. Our organic tamari powder gives this vegan burger its deep, savory flavor along with other umami-rich seasonings and chopped porcini mushrooms. Top with avocado, fresh tomato and umami mayo for the ultimate savory summer burger.
This super satisfying salad combines a blend of farro, freekeh, grano, red rice, rye and wheat berries. Chickpeas and walnuts make it substantial enough to be a one-plate dinner. A fresh lemon honey vinaigrette ties everything together.
These crispy vegetarian meatballs have it all going on: spicy crushed Calabrian chiles, eggplant, crispy breadcrumbs, and parmesan. They're a classic dish in Calabria, Italy, where they are eaten without pasta. Serve these meatballs with a fresh tomato sauce, kicked up with a few extra Crushed Calabrian Chiles.
Or as I like to call it, cilantro-pepita pesto with Israeli couscous. Fresh cilantro, rich roasted pepitas, and salty parmesan are the ultimate sauce for chewy Israeli couscous. Rehydrated freeze-dried corn and roasted red pepper add texture and gorgeous contrast.
Grilled peaches are one of summer's great pleasures. Here they contrast perfectly with peppery arugula, toasty almonds, and quinoa. Toss with chopped sweet onion and a light honey vinaigrette, or drizzle with balsamic glaze and olive oil.
White gazpacho, also known as ajo blanco, is a creamy, dairy-free chilled soup with origins in Moorish Spain. Ethereal blanched almonds and garlic are the principal ingredients and lightly toasted bread adds body. A drizzle of olive oil and fresh green grapes are classic garnishes—chopped cucumber, chives, and croutons add texture and flavor.
If anyone ever tells you that you can't have baba ganoush for dinner, stop talking to them because you don't need that kind of negativity in your life. This classic baba ganoush is topped with nut-free dukkah, a crunchy, spicy Egyptian spice blend with flaxseeds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
