What’s In Season During June?
This time of year, there are all kinds of fantastic fruits and veggies in season! I am in love with this list of fruits and veggies.
You may be wondering, what’s the point in cooking with your local growing season when you can buy most of this produce year-round? Well, I like to use the freshest ingredients possible because it makes a world of difference when it comes to flavor. There’s nothing better than adding ripe, fresh tomatoes to a pasta salad!
When it comes to cooking with fresh produce, the month of June has so much to offer! These 5 recipes highlight many favorite seasonal ingredients such as strawberries, tomatoes, grapes, celery, and lettuce. Additionally, your herb garden will be thriving this time of year and fresh-picked herbs will elevate the flavor of any recipe!
Whether you’re looking for an easy weeknight meal, hosting friends, or throwing a patio party, these are 5 must-make recipes for June! They are all simple to make family favorites that require very little hands-on cooking and have fantastic flavors that everyone will love.
Items To Help You Make These Recipes
- Knife Set – A cook is only as good as their knives… that may not be the exact phrase, but I do think it’s very true.
- Baking Sheet – I recommend purchasing a non-stick baking sheet if you don’t have one already, it makes clean-up so much easier!
- Crock Pot – The slow cooking is my culinary best friend. This style of ‘hands-free’ cooking is super easy and allows you to prepare dinner on your own schedule.
- Mixing Bowls – I really like to use mixing bowls that have airtight lids. They serve a dual purpose, with a lot of flexibility when you’re preparing a meal.
