Seasonal Recipes for the Win!

Planning what to make for dinner can feel like a chore – but it doesn’t have to! Simply look at what produce is in season, and you can come up with some great meals around them. For late summer and early fall, in-season fruits and veggies include peaches, summer squash, eggplant, and melons. Here, we present a few of our favorite recipes using these ingredients.

Peach Bruschetta With Prosciutto and Burrata

While we love a good peach pie or peach galette, Kaleigh McMordie over at Lively Table has one of the tastiest recipes for Peach Bruschetta we’ve ever had. All you need is French bread, olive oil, burrata cheese, prosciutto, peaches, flake salt, and basil. Toast the bread in the oven with olive oil, and once it’s done, you can assemble the bruschetta.

Parmesan Yellow Squash Fritters

You’ve probably had your fill of roasted squash or summer squash bake, but let us introduce you to these Parmesan Yellow Squash Fritters from Kathleen Phillips of Grits and Gouda. They are crispy, cheesy, and, most importantly, delicious. For this dish, you will need yellow squash, egg, flour, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Be sure to remove excess water from the squash before mixing it with the egg, cheese, and seasonings!

Chocolate Eggplant

Chocolate eggplant? Yes, you read that right. Delicious Italy has a delicious eggplant recipe in the form of a traditional dessert dating back to the 1700s on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. To make this savory-sweet dish, you will need seedless eggplant, salt, flour, cinnamon, olive oil, heavy cream, chopped dark chocolate, sweet liqueur, ricotta, crushed amaretti cookies, almond slices, candied orange peel or orange zest, and candied cherries. While this recipe is more complex than the others on this list, it is 100 percent worth it when you get a spoonful.

Mint and Melon Salad

Melons vary in flavor and texture, making them perfect for a salad. This recipe is from Katie Webster of Healthy Seasonal Recipes, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is a refreshing option for warmer weather that doesn’t require any heat in the kitchen. Just chop up some melons—watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe—and combine with honey or agave syrup, mint, and lemon juice. Stir all the ingredients together, and it will be ready to eat in less than five minutes!

Our spin – add diced tomatoes and feta cheese blocks!
