Roasted Cauliflower & Delicata Squash with Baby Spinach

Roasted Cauliflower & Delicata Squash with Baby Spinach

No need to peel this squash- once cooked, delicata squash has an edible, tender skin. To prepare, cut off the ends, slice lengthwise and remove the seeds with a melon baller. Roasting the squash, cauliflower and red onion caramelizes the natural sugars for a rich flavor. Remember to successfully roast vegetables, cut them into similar sized pieces, so they cook evenly. This nutrient-dense dish provides dietary fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C. 

Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup

This simple lentil soup recipe comes together quickly with some basic pantry ingredients. The lentils provide protein and dietary fiber and don’t require presoaking. The aromatic spices combine for a rich flavor. You can blend the soup to your desired consistency. It is finished off with leafy greens to add a touch of freshness. Suggested toppings include a dollop of your favorite pesto, toasted nuts or pistachio cream that we will be making today. 

Energy Bites

Energy Bites

Make a batch of these on the weekend, and store them in the freezer to enjoy all week long. These nutrient dense bites are the perfect grab and go snack, or can be used to top fruit- based desserts. Today, we will “crumble” these over poached pears for a touch of sweetness and texture. 

Summer Bean Salad

Summer Bean Salad

A fresh salad hearty enough to stand alone as an entrée with the added protein from edamame and garbanzo beans. Try subbing red peppers or green beans for some of the ingredients, depending on what is available in your garden or at your local farm market. 

Melon and Spinach Salad

Melon and Spinach Salad

This refreshing salad is bursting with flavor and nutrition. This fruit provides two powerful phytonutrients- the watermelon contains lycopene and cantaloupe provides beta-carotene. Spinach also provides vitamins A and K. The salad is finished with an orange-ginger dressing to complete the summer feel.
