Basil chickpea curry with coconut-lime rice

I could have eaten this dish for days on end. Sure, hot food in the summer sounds rough, but this dish was really lightened up by the basil, lime and coconut milk. One of my favorite meals this summer.

Honey mustard Brussels sprouts over pureed cauliflower

Everyone has heard me say at least 5,000 times that I love fall flavors. But really, what is more satisfying than harvest-time veggies with just the right seasoning and a great combination of textures? I’m also really getting down with sweet and spicy flavors on my veggies lately, like this spicy mustard and honey combination. Another great one? Honey and sriracha. (More on that later.)

I'm calling this one of our best guides ever. These jams have been incredible and I've spent hardly any time on mine. No pectin, no canning, just a quick jam to store in the fridge for the week. And don't worry about it going bad — it does not last that long.

Coriander-garlic lamb kebabs

I’d never cooked with lamb before this, and one thing I learned is that the leg is a somewhat complex piece of meat. The one I bought included the bone and had lots of fat on the outer edge. I understand that if you buy leg of lamb by the pound from a butcher, you can request to have the bone removed and the fat trimmed. I’d suggest going that route to cut back on prep time, but it was kind of fun to dissect the piece myself. It definitely helped me get acquainted with this new-to-me red meat.

Grilled chopped ratatouille salad

This was a fun way to pack a lot of summer’s best bounty into one dish. Fun fact: I christened my brand new baby Weber grill with this dish. Can’t wait to grill more vegetables!

We have stir-fry at least once a week - although this was a departure from our usual.

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (I used olive oil, wasn’t making another trip out)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce OR Sriracha! Yeah!
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red onion, halved, cut into wedges, and pulled apart (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 small yellow or red bell pepper, thinly sliced (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews or peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cups snap peas

Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, chile-garlic sauce (OR Sriracha! Yeah!) and 1/2 cup water in small bowl. Set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in a pan (if you have a wok – good for you) over high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, cashews, and ginger and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes, or until onion and cashews begin to brown. Add snap peas and stir-fry 1 minute. Add soy sauce mixture, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until sauce has thickened and vegetables are coated with sauce.

Makes four servings.
