Watermelon Salad

By Gina Caputo

Watermelon Salad
This is such a simple One Bowl Wonder and my absolute favorite for the hottest summer days. Sweet watermelon combines beautifully with salty feta, bitter arugula and spicy grilled chicken or tofu with a tangy lemon vinagrette. Major crowd pleaser right here.

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad

By Gina Caputo

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad
When asparagus is in season, this salad is a MUST. The bitter of the arugula goes so spectacularly with asparagus and the lemon makes every ingredient in here pop. Shrimp is a super easy protein to prepare, is amazing with avocado and has a lot of bang for its buck. Vegan friends can use a can of rinsed garbanzo beans and it’s an amazing, hearty salad for all!

Can't Beet It

By Gina Caputo

Can't Beet It
This is a riff on a favorite recipe of mine that I make every week. Sometimes I change up the legume or the greens, other times I change up the grain. This version uses barley, a high-fiber (with decent protein!) grain that is most commonly used in soups but has a nutty flavor that makes it amazing in salads. These salads feel like "shoulder season" salads to me, where I'm ready to move out of the heavier foods of winter but not quite ready for the light salads of summer.

Rigatoni alla Pasta Day

By Gina Caputo

Rigatoni alla Pasta Day
Technically not a One Bowl Wonder because we're serving the arugula in a second bowl! But 10/17/19 is National Pasta Day in the US so consider this a SPECIAL EDITION One Bowl Wonder for a very, very important holiday! This exquisite dish can be made vegan or omni with your choice of pastas and the tomato sauce is boss. You'll never buy bottle sauce again, this CHANGES YOU.

Feel The Beet

By Gina Caputo

Feel The Beet
Root veggies are to Fall as fruits are to Summer so to kick off Fall, I always bring out the beets! Beets are high in important vitamins and minerals, are thought to support athletic performance, are high in fiber and may support brain health! If you aren't sure if you like them, this could be a great dish to try them again. The apple brings a brightness to the earthy beets and the saltiness of the feta/vegan feta is a partner. Git some.
