Summer time is here! Check out these delicious recipes you can try at home that are a perfect fit for this warm season.
GRILLED NECTARINE SALAD:
Preheat your BBQ to medium heat. Lightly brush olive oil on the grill and place 2 halved organic nectarines (pits removed) flesh down on the grill. Cook for 3 minutes covered (until grill marks are showing), flip and grill for another 2 minutes on the skin side.
Chop nectarine into small pieces and add to 2 C of organic arugula, goat cheese (to taste), 1/3 C toasted almonds (heated in medium pan for 5 minutes), sea salt, black pepper, and drizzle with honey and balsamic vinaigrette to taste.
GREEK YOGURT, LEMON AND HONEY POPSICLES:
In a small bowl, add 2 C of organic Greek yogurt (or vegan alternative – try coconut yogurt!), 1/3 C honey, 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract, the juice and zest of half a lemon, and mix well. Place mixture into large popsicle molds (about 2) and place a stick in the middle for handling. Freeze for 3 hours and enjoy cold!
CLASSIC MARGARITA NAAN PIZZA:
Preheat grill to medium head. Assemble pizza by adding organic tomato sauce, sliced organic mozzarella cheese and organic basil leaves to your naan breads (amounts are up to you!).
Place pizzas on grill and cook with lid down for 10 minutes, or until grill marks are visible on the bottom of the naan bread and the cheese has melted. Slice up and serve warm!
On medium heat on the BBQ, grill cleaned organic corn husk (uncovered) for 4-5 minutes, turning on each side until charred.
Remove corn kernels from the core and add to a medium sized bowl. Add ½ C rinsed organic black beans, ½ C pico de gallo (chopped organic tomato, chopped red onion, ½ organic avocado (chopped), 1 tbsp. olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, finely chopped organic parsley), 1 C thinly sliced organic romaine to bowl.
To make dressing, blend ½ C Greek yogurt, ¼ C olive oil, organic sprigs of cilantro (to taste!), sea salt, black pepper, zest and juice of 1 organic lime until smooth. Add to salad and top with fresh cojito cheese and organic tri-coloured tortilla strips.
