I’m just going to get straight into the round-up for July’s Simple and in Season as a) I’m late again and b) there were a staggering 38 entries and so there are just too many to get through!
I’m also going to post in in two parts as I’m exactly half-way through now so I might as well go for it. The second part of July’s seasonal treats will follow tomorrow, along with an announcement of the winner. I’m still deciding!
The next few entries are from one of our regular Simple and in Season contenders – Tadka Pasta who made Berry Blast – Ruby Raspberry Scones and a Red Berry Crumble. Don’t these look amazing?! Perfect for a glut of summer fruit. Then another entry followed called Strawberry Swirl Rice – what a lovely bright photo!
Another amazing-looking dish came along – Sushi Bowl with Asparagus and Avocado – a kind of de-constructed sushi inspired by 101 Cookbooks and a trip to Vancouver. Taste Space also shared a perfectly names Luscious Lentil and Basil Soup, which was packed full of flavour as well as a wonderful Greek Baked Beans recipe.
All pretty healthy stuff, perfectly showcasing the best of Canadian seasonal produce. Wow, is all I can say!
A new entrant, I believe, from a lovely blog called GirliChef, sharing her recipe for Fruits & Grains Salad with a Strawberry Vinaigrette. Thank you so much for joining in! Just look at this stunning salad – I love the edible flowers and the fruits make it so appetizing.
This month, Sharky Oven Gloves (Mel) who won Simple and in Season last month warmed herself up on a cold day in Scotland and made a delicious Aubergine and Lamb Gratin. I love the fact that this was adapted form her ‘Mum’s folder of random recipes!’ We’ve all got one of those! It’s so easy to make – a perfect Simple and in Season entry!
So, that’s the first half of July’s recipes in a round-up. Check back tomorrow for Part Two!
