Black Bean Burger Sliders

This black bean burger recipe is simply delicious and can be adjusted to any level of spiciness you prefer. It is not dry like some veggie burger recipes tend to be (nor does it taste like cardboard, which can be a characteristic of the aforementioned as well).

Asparagus and Mushroom Risotto

This delicious creamy risotto takes some time and attention like any other risotto but the flavors in this dish cannot be matched. The addition of salty parmesan adds a depth of flavor that goes perfectly with the vegetables. Fresh asparagus and rich vegetable stock give this dish beautiful color, and I can't say enough about the flavor combination of thyme, rosemary, and basil.

Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry

In my search for new recipes I have come to find the most exciting and interesting meatless meals come from a wide array of ethnic backgrounds. Indian food is something I have never made before and this is a wonderfully easy and delicious recipe. The curry powder lends spiciness to this dish while the sweetness of the potatoes contrasts very well. Adding lemon juice at the end makes all of the wonderful spices in the curry powder pop.

Veggie Quinoa Paella

I have recently been surfing the internet quite a bit to find new, and as you may have noticed, meatless recipes. I found some really great blogs and this recipe happened to catch my eye as I love traditional paella and have been wanting to crack open my new box of red quinoa for some time now. While there is a long list of ingredients  it turned out to be a very simple one pan meal that made enough for a very hearty dinner for two. Not to mention it was delicious!

Blueberry "Pie"

I had a surplus of fresh blueberries in my fridge and a lone tortilla leftover from quesadilla night. It was also time to put my new mini casserole dish to use and so, I decided to make a dessert for the first time in a long time! If you prefer a more cobbler like crust you could use some refrigerated biscuit dough and plop it on top instead of the tortilla and sprinkle with sugar before baking.

Summer Tostadas

This delicious and colorful mexican dish is perfect to split between two people for a hearty dinner or to serve as an appetizer or side at a get together. A crunchy tortilla topped with sweet corn, tender zucchini, and black beans with the bright flavors of cilantro, green chiles and fresh jalapeno is a seriously tasty way to utilize the best of summer's seasonal offerings.
