Mexican Street Corn One Bowl Wonder

By Gina Caputo

Mexican Street Corn One Bowl Wonder
This delicious, high protein bowl highlights summer veggies like tomatoes, corn, bell pepper and avocado. The creamy dressingĀ complementsĀ the carmelization of the corn beautifully. If you love elotes or esquites, you might love this riff on those flavors in this crowd pleasing, cookout friendly bowl. This was one of those fun experiments that ended up on the winner list!

Healthier Caesar Dressing

By Gina Caputo

Healthier Caesar Dressing
I love making my own dressings, likeĀ my Lemon Vinaigrette and this Balsamic Vinaigrette but to date, I didn't have a homemade Caesar Dressing recipe! This spin on a Caesar uses greek yogurt to cut down on the cheese and oil and can be made with or without anchovies! Good on salads and sandwiches too!

Fall The Way

By Gina Caputo

Fall The Way
Once apples come in season, wild horses couldn't drag me away from them. So begins my Fall One Bowl Wonder season with something that looks a little like this healthy and high in protein bowl that is easily made vegan! I'm low key obsessed with meals that include all 6 Ayurvedic flavors: astringent, spicy, bitter, sour, sweet, salty. This one ticks all the boxes!

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.

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce

By Gina Caputo

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce
Chimichurri is a bright, punchy, herbaceous sauce with roots in South America and it goes well with just about EVERYTHING. I especially love it for summer when herbs are abundant and it's too hot to cookĀ inside so everything gets grilled. While your veggies or meats are grilling, whip this up and serve it right alongside. It makes everything taste like a summer party!

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 itā€™s an amazing, hearty salad for all!Ā

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.

Pesto with Super Greens

By Gina Caputo

Pesto with Super Greens
Pesto has been a family fave for decades but two ways I've kicked it up over the years are the addition of lemon juice which adds a bright and welcome sour kick to the salty, herbacious pesto, giving it a little more lightness and the addition of a Hulk sized portion of super greens to kick up the vitamin profile of pesto!
