Recipe Round-Ups

The Best Things We Ate This Month

Every month, we round up the best things we’ve eaten—recipes we’ve made, restaurant meals, and impromptu dinners that turned out so good we just have to share them. Here are this month’s favorites:


I have been all about easy and quick meals lately, so these 30-minute summer garden veggie flatbreads are in heavy rotation at our house. Full of fresh herbs and veggies, they are the perfect way to use up extra produce you have hanging around! —Ashley

corn and cherry tomato quiche

Forget the best thing I ate this month, I’m pretty sure this quiche is the best thing I’ve eaten all year! It is quintessentially summer with a creamy sweet corn custard filling and caramelized roasted tomatoes on top. Plus the most perfect pie crust. EVER. Obsessed. —Joanne

I work from home, so at least once a week I like to set up shop in a cafe where I can treat myself to a nice breakfast and feel like I am actually a part of society. One of my favorite places to do this is The Bad Waitress diner in Minneapolis; they feature tons of local and organic ingredients, the space is sunny, and has a nice, relaxing vibe. Their Supernova Kale Scramble (eggs with kale, cilantro, avocado, red onion and goat cheese) has fast become my go-to power breakfast, and their coffee is amazing. I also love that they have a cherry-flavored spin on an Arnie Palmer called the Robert Palmer (yes, it is simply irresistible). —Dana

Salad SamuraiOut of all of my cookbooks, Salad Samurai is probably the one I’ve made the most recipes from. If you don’t currently own a copy, I highly recommend it! After getting a giant cabbage and a bunch of dill in our CSA box, I decided to make the BBQ Tempeh & Dilly Slaw Bowl recipe from the book and it was the perfect summer dinner. I mean, there are potato chips in it, how could it not be good?! —Kiersten

Collard Hummus Wraps with Golden Beets and Sprouts

I finally tried collard wraps and they just might be my new favorite thing. Collard leaves are nice and flexible, so wrapping was easy, but they’re also just firm enough to be incredibly satisfying to bite into. I made mine with this cajun hummus, quinoa, roasted red pepper slices and sprouts, but I’m sure all kinds of veggie fillings would be delicious. —Alissa
