Enjoy delicious meat-free recipes this summer, as it warms up it's the perfect time of the year to enjoy veggie-based dishes and I can guarantee you won't miss the meat with these. Plus find the #CookBlogShare 2020 week 21 linky.
Welcome to #CookBlogShare the weekly linky for all things foodie hosted here on Recipes Made Easy the last Tuesday of the month, at Lost in Food on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and with our guests hosts on the remaining Tuesdays.
Its the place where food bloggers can share their latest posts and for you to find new food blogs.
May in a Nutshell
But first, as another month comes to an end, a quick recap of what's been happening here in May.
2020 is turning out to be a strange year indeed, with so many lows and too few highs. Pretty much any other year I would be saying by now, How can it be nearly June already!; every year seems to just pass quicker and quicker. It feels very strange to be feeling in many ways this year cannot go quick enough as we all long to see the back of this virus. How are you feeling?
Still, life does not stand still and we carry on with our new norm. I've got used to meeting friends on zoom for a weekly stitch and bitch session, as well as choir rehearsals, I wonder if next door has invested in earplugs for Wednesday evenings!
The sun has shown its face a fair bit, and it looks like we will go through May with no rain at all. I enjoy the peace of my tiny city garden and have finally made a start on a garden project I had been planning for some time, a mosaic garden table. Part one, the centrepiece is now complete and I'm really pleased with how it looks. It's slow and even in lockdown it will be sometime before its finished. Do you have a lockdown project?
and of course work on the blogs carries on as normal. A mixture of updating old posts such as this Rhubarb and ginger crumble and new recipes such as my sourdough pancakes on Only Crumbs Remain and Roasted cauliflower soup here on recipes made easy.
Enough about me, time to see what everyone else has been cooking.
Meat-free recipes for summer
So once again there were plenty of lovely recipes linked up on #CookBlogShare last week hosted by Louise at A Strong Coffee to choose from. With the rhubarb in full swing, there were several rhubarb recipes linked up Stewed rhubarb from a Baking journey, Vegan panna cotta with rhubarb from Family, Friends, Food and my own Rhubarb and ginger crumble. (If you need any more ideas for rhubarb take a look at this 25+ rhubarb recipes round up post on Crumbs with recipes from myself and other bloggers).
With the better weather some salad recipes have started to appear. This Easy beef salad with Asian slaw from Lost in Food looked particularly tasty. There also seems to be an increase in the number of vegetarian meals as we look for lighter dishes. I think even the most hardened meat eaters like to include more veggie based dishes in their diet in the summer and there are plenty to choose from.
All 5 of these meat-free recipes are perfect for enjoying this summer.
Spinach and Chick Pea Curry
A super quick, easy and tasty vegan main that can be on the table within twenty minutes.
Spinach and chickpea curry from Tin and Thyme. Sounds perfect to me!
Oven baked falafel
Quick, easy to make and totally delicious, these Easy Oven Baked Falafel are going to be your new favourite recipe
Falafel is certainly a favourite in our house. – Easy Oven Baked Falafel from Easy Peasy Foodie.
Puff Pastry Potato Tart
Crisp puff pastry tart with new potatoes, herbs and cheese. This Puff Pastry Potato Tart is easy and quick to make and so delicious.
What can I say this Puff pastry potato tart from Curly's Cooking looks so delicious I had to include it!
Roasted aubergine with pomegranate molasses
This Roasted Aubergine with Pomegranate Molasses & Pul Biber recipe is incredibly simple but the perfect addition to a mezze feast.
Roasted aubergine with pomegranate molasses from Feast Glorious Feast – I love aubergines in all forms and roasted is no exception.
Delicious Shakshuka. A perfectly-spiced one-skillet North African meal of nestled baked eggs in tomatoes. Nutritious and beautiful. Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch.
I have a confession to make believe it or not I have never eaten Shakshuka I have wanted to and had intended to go out for brunch sometime to try it but just not got around. No excuses now I should make my own Shakshuka from the Gluten-Free Alchemist.
Pea and spring onion frittata
This pea and spring onion frittata is ideal for lunch or a midweek evening meal. Delicious served hot or cold.
Finally there's my own Pea and spring onion frittata perfect for a lunch in the garden
