A community of ideas to celebrate, nuture, and protect our planet for generations to come
With this stream of beautiful weather we have been having, I think it’s fair to say that summer is upon us and here to stay! There is no better place than Michigan in the summer. Already I have filled my days with farmer’s markets, outside concerts in the park, art fairs, local festivals, ice cream and gorgeous Lake Michigan beaches!
When we began eating vegetarian it was a transition attempting to think of things to cook. I hope to bring some ease to your life if you are charting down a more veggie friendly path. “Meatless Mondays” could be a way to phase in green dinners onto your family’s table. Here’s a helpful resource to find a farmers market nearest you… remember to bring a basket or reusable bag!
I thought I’d share one of my current favorite recipes, utilizing that beautiful fresh asparagus!
Michigan Asparagus Tacos
Option for beans
Red Bell Pepper
* Blend sour cream, lime, cilantro, and salt for a savory, creamy taco spread.
1. Grill or pan fry veggies with EVOO and the cumin and chilli powder. If you like things spicy, throw in a chopped chipotle pepper in Adobo sauce or a seeded jalapeño.
2. Heat the tortillas quickly in a pan and then smear with the savory sour cream blend. Fill with veggies to your heart’s delight!
