Zucchini Panini with corn and goat cheese

Ever since I got my panini maker I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of sandwich combinations. I’m convinced that pretty much everything tastes better inside a sandwich. But summer gives you an extra advantage — delicious, fresh produce. Not only is this zucchini panini fun to say out loud, but it’s loaded with fresh veggies and it’s so good for you. Stuff it full of whatever you have left from last week’s farmers market haul, and it will be that much more delicious. Add sliced tomatoes for the ultimate summer sandwich. Zucchini Panini with corn and goat cheese Ingredients 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1/2 tbsp minced garlic 1 small zucchini, halved and sliced lengthwise 1 ear corn, kernels removed salt pepper 6-8 slices of bakery bread (depending how much filling you like in your sandwiches) 2 tbsp garlic butter (or just butter is fine), softened 1/2 cup goat cheese…

Roasted Red Pepper Cauliflower soup recipe is ready in no time

Roasted red peppers are one of those foods I keep stocked at all times. You can quickly elevate a basic chicken breast, pasta or pizza with a creamy roasted red pepper sauce. And it’s just as easy to make them a meal all on their own like in this tangy and satisfying soup made with cauliflower and creamy goat cheese. Roasted Red pepper Cauliflower soup Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 4 large roasted red peppers 1 bag cauliflower florets 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp olive oil 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth 1 medium onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, chopped 3-4 springs fresh thyme 6 ounces goat cheese salt fresh ground black pepper Directions Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Blackberry, red onion, cheese tart recipe

It’s always when you have a nearly empty fridge, that you come up with the most delicious recipes. This was one of those recipes for me. I usually keep a pasty puff on hand as an easy way to serve up an excess of veggies, but when I searched the fridge, I found only one single sad onion — nothing close to the colorful crop selection I’m used to working with. But from these unlikely beginnings came the most delicious tart. It’s unique flavor combination falls somewhere between light lunch and slightly sweet dessert. Whatever reason you have to serve it, it’s a must try. Blackberry, red onion, cheese tart Ingredients 1 pre-made puff pastry 1 medium red onion about 20 blackberries (fresh is best, but frozen works, too) 1 cup shredded aged white cheddar (Kerrygold was what I used) 1/2 cup shredded goats cheese fresh cracked pepper 1/4 cup sliced almonds 1-2 tbsp olive oil 3…

Tomato, zucchini, goat cheese and thyme tart recipe

Any recipe that uses up a good amount of veggies is a hit with me. I tend to go overboard at the farmers market — this time of year everything looks so delicious! — but it’s important not to let food go to waste. According to a Guardian report, roughly 50 percent of all produce in the United States is thrown away amounting to $1,600 in annual food waste for every family of four. With this staggering number in mind, I’ve made it a point recently to keep recipes on hand that use unusual vegetables, vegetables in bulk, or difficult herbs sometimes delivered in the CSA. Juices and stews are great for this task, but sometimes your veggies are just too darn pretty to hide. Tarts and galettes are a great option for showcasing those shiny vegetables, while also allowing plenty of space for layering and packing in leftover produce. You could easily throw in another layer of zucchini to…
