Peaches are a quintessential sign of summer. They are the “eat over the sink” kind of fruit with the sweet juices dribbling down your chin. If you happen to be overloaded with peaches, especially ones that are on the firm side, consider grilling them and making a healthy stone fruit-centered dessert or even breakfast. This is a great option when you already have the hot grill going for dinner. These peaches cook up in 4 minutes a side and are a delicious compliment to a meal. No outdoor grill? No problem. A grill pan works just as well.
Summer salad season has commenced, and warm weather cooking is focused on easy fare with minimal heat and prep. My body always craves crunchy and fresh foods when the temperature rise, and I certainly try and avoid lengthy time in the kitchen. A classic wedge salad typically features iceberg lettuce, blue cheese dressing, and bacon - tasty but not very nutritious. For a more virtuous spin on the classic wedge, consider this salad which features yogurt ranch dressing and crunchy romaine lettuce along with other vegetables -all topped with smokey almonds.
In search of a quick, delicious, and nutritious sheet pan dinner? Consider Andrew’s signature sheet pan chicken shawarma with chickpeas and red onion. This dinner is one of our speedy go-to weeknight mains. We usually have it with a grain such as quinoa, farro, or cous cous with some fresh herbs folded in. A refreshing quick cucumber salad made with sliced cucumbers dressed with apple cider vinegar, white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and fresh dill add a nice crunch factor and a hearty dollop of plain tangy yogurt make this a complete and tasty weeknight meal.
