Fresh fruits and veggies make throwing together a quick and healthy dinner fun. Tonight I didn’t have a ton of time, I wanted to use a lot of odds and ends from the refrigerator, and I wanted a summery meal.
While cooking some wild rice, I put together a refreshing salsa made from a ripe avocado, a fresh peach, a handful of cherries and about 1/4 C sweet onion.
I simply chopped & mixed (and tasted)!
I could have eaten this on it’s own for my dinner, but I kept on cookin’. Next, I sauteed tempeh that I had marinated in coconut oil, maple syrup and soy sauce. I know it’s a weird combination, but it was yummy!
As soon as the rice was done I piled our plates with wild rice, fresh arugula, tempeh, salsa, and a few almonds on top.
I love meals like this where every bite is packed with not only interesting flavors, but also a variety of nutrients.
After this summer inspired dinner, we couldn’t help but get outside and enjoy the beautiful night.
Does anyone out there have a summer recipe that you love? Please share!
