Fried Green Tomatoes

Make sure to choose very green, very firm tomatoes for this recipe. Once they start to turn color, they will soften and become much harder to fry. You’ll find the best green tomatoes in early July, and again at the end of August. 

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

No mushy tomatoes here! Using a quick flash of high heat, this recipe imparts a lot of flavor into the tomatoes with only a few ingredients and a short amount of time. 

Goddess Bowl

Grain and noodle bowls are the way to go for simple, flexible meals. The easy tahini dressing has enough Sriracha sauce to make it exciting, but if you don't like it hot you can always cut the amount in half. Customize with your favorite cooked or shredded veggies, proteins or sauces.

Simple Vegetable Curry

Coconut milk is a fantastic simmer sauce — sturdy enough to boil and full of sweet, coconut flavor. Keep a few cans in the pantry and you can always make a delicious, creamy curry dinner in just a few minutes. Add cooked brown or jasmine rice from the co-ops’ deli and you’re done!

Japanese Grilled Eggplant

These are a great izakaya-style appetizer, or chop coarsely and add to a bowl of hearty udon noodles. Make extra miso sauce, and use as a dressing for a cold grilled eggplant udon noodle salad, served with chopped scallions on top. 

Summer Rolls

You can easily adapt this recipe and make up your own fillings! Quinoa makes for a great plant-based protein and you can easily make a sweet version with fresh fruits instead of veggies. 

Vegetarian Paella

 There are a lot of layers of flavor in paella, so keep it simple with the side dishes. A tapas-style selection of olives, chewy bread and Spanish cheeses along with a crisp green salad dressed in a vinegar or lemon vinaigrette work well.

Mango Shrikhand

This traditional Indian-style fruit pudding is a cooling finish to any spicy meal. Serve with wafer cookies, or garnish with chopped fresh mint.

Pumpkin Spice Granola

A delicious autumn granola, just baking it will make your kitchen warm and cozy. Perfect to give to a friend as a “just-because” gift! 

Shaved Kale Salad

Pair this sweet, tangy, crunchy kale salad with some roasted pork or chicken.
