July has arrived with rays of sunshine and will hopefully promise to stay around a while longer.
We have 7 green recipes to share for #EatYourGreens.
The first Eat Your Greens recipe comes from Ray who blogs at The Humble Lentil. Ray shares with us a vibrant bowl of fenugreek also known as Methi and seasonal Jersey Royal Potatoes.
Kate from GlutenFree Alchemist shared with us Spanakopita Galette filled to the brim with greens such as spinach, leeks and spring onions. This green galette would make for a fantastic garden lunch.
We have another galette and this one comes from Johanna who blogs over at Green Gourmet Giraffe. To be honest, I'd be happy with a slice of both galettes on my plate - Yes I am a greedy person. This green galette is made with Zucchini, Sun dried Tomatoes and Goats cheese.
Kari from Bite Sized Thoughts also brought to the table a zucchini dish. Hers is Zucchini Noodles with a Creamy Turmeric Dressing. I do like eating courgettes, but this plate is just too pretty to eat with its warm vibrant colours. I am afraid I would just be gazing at it the way one stares at stars on still clear dark nights.
Next we have Minted Broad Bean Spread from Choclette who blogs at Tin and Thyme. This kind of naturally creamy green smooth spread always excites me this time of year as its a sign that Summer has truly arrived and there will be lots of greens for us to try especially the pod kind.
The Veg Hog my co-host will be hosting #EatYourGreens in July, but last months she shared
Courgette, Mushroom and Peas Pasta Sauce. I love the way the sauce has coated the pasta and the thinly paper sliced courgettes making what could be deemed a heavy dish to one of lightness and delight.
And finally, my own contribution which was a Thai Green Coconut Curry packed with lots of green vegetables like mangetout, broad beans, edamame beans, peas, green beans and even baby gem lettuce.
