{Nourish} Grilled Fruits and Veggies Round-Up

Grilled Fruits and Vegetables @katiecavutoRD

Father’s day is this weekend! Like many dads, mine is a grilling machine. That’s his happy place in “the kitchen”. Sure, you can grill-up a batch of BBQ chicken or sausage (staples at my parents house) or you can add some inspiration to the menu this year! Meats are a go-to grill option but fruits and vegetables should not be ignored. The grill has a wonderful way of caramelizing the natural sugars of the ingredients. That being said, I rounded up grilled fruit and vegetable recipes that will pair perfectly with the Summer Grilling Main Dish Round-Up we posted last week.  Continue reading “{Nourish} Grilled Fruits and Veggies Round-Up”

{Nourish} Quinoa Tabbouleh

Quinoa TabboulehRemember that beautiful Spring Vegetable Frittata that I shared on Tuesday, well this super simple Quinoa Tabbouleh is its perfect mate! Colorful, flavorful and loaded with good-for-you ingredients, this recipe is a mainstay in our house. I have been making it for years and I am shocked that it is, just now, making it’s way onto the blog. Whip it up for a brunch, BBQ of weekend lunch. It’s a crowd pleasure to say the least. Save yourself some time and pre-cook the quinoa (or another grain of your choosing). I have even used frozen, defrosted quinoa in a pinch as  I usually have the other ingredients in the house!  Continue reading “{Nourish} Quinoa Tabbouleh”

{Nourish} Seared Scallops + Southwest Corn & Tomato Salad

CornSalad_1

Are you tired of cooking scallops that turn out rubbery and chewy? Try this recipe and it will never happen again! The key to cooking a great scallop lies in the quality of the scallop you purchase and the way you handle this delicate ingredient. This is a go-to recipe in my house because it can be whipped up in a cinch and requires only 5 minutes of actual cooking. Oh, and I am obsessed with raw corn so I make some variation of this salad over and over to take advantage of the sweet, crunchy goodness of local corn because, Jersey corn really is the best! Trust me.

{Nourish} “Smoky” Salmon with Grilled Peach & Tomato Salad

IMG_9148  This is my favorite time of year when it comes to seasonal produce because tomatoes, peaches and corn are plentiful and beyond delicious. When ingredients are in season and locally grown they are so flavorful they practically speak for themselves which means you barely have to season them. This recipe really speaks to all that is fresh and good this time of year. I prepared this for a recent guest chef dinner I did at 41 North Hotel in Newport, RI. The theme was seafood because, well, summer is seafood season! For the next few days I am going to spotlight a few of my seafood recipes that have graced the menu at several recent events. They pay homage to this magical time of year and better yet, you wont have to spend hours in the kitchen preparing them! Enjoy!
