Keep It Simple
There comes a time in the summer where one realizes that the summer bucket list is getting sparse and one simply looks forward to having a "weekend off".
Like the multitude of events that keep our calendars full through out the summer break, those elaborate meal ideas also wane, and one is left wanting a simpler approach.
I say, embrace the simplicity.
And what's simpler than a quick homemade dip to pair with 6 out of the 11 items in this weeks' bin? The internet is littered with these types of recipes, some touting 20 minutes or less, others bragging that it only needs two ingredients to come together.
In some cases, you can even use some of the vegetables in the dip, such as this beautifully coloured Beet & Tahini Dip.
There is something magic about dips. It always seems as if their sheer presence suddenly turns my family into raw-vegetable eating machines.
Carrots, beans and cucumbers don't stand a chance and are quickly devoured.
As I start to take the summer days for granted, I am also not above eating a tomato sandwich for supper, or having a simple sauté.
After all, what else were vegetables like the romanesco cauliflower created for than to be featured as a one-ingredient dish?
