Recipes for your spring and summer harvest

Broccoli, beet, kale, and brown rice bowl with pesto

If you’re a big fan of tossing things into a skillet for a quick weeknight superfood fare, this one is for you. It knocks out three seasonal veggies in one dish, and because it contains brown rice and pesto, it’ll fill you up too! 

Kohlrabi, turnips and green peas

Here’s another recipe that includes three vegetables in season right now. Kohlrabi is also known as a German turnip, even though it’s in the same family as cabbage, broccoli, and kale. It might sound exotic but it’s grown right here in Indiana, and because it’s packed with calcium and magnesium, it can also contribute to stronger bones. Win-win! 

Kohlrabi potato salad

Lemony collard greens and pasta

Here’s a pasta dish that’s not too heavy for a summer day, and the thin-sliced sauteed collard greens make it bold and fragrant.

This one will be another hit at your backyard barbecue, and also allows you to take advantage of fresh green onions. 

Summer cherry-berry fruit salad

Here’s a healthy and vibrant dish you can enjoy all summer long. At a glance, it might look like a very basic bowl of berries, but the mint, lemon, and dash of cinnamon and cardamom make it unique and flavorful.
