Seasonal Summer Recipes
Summer is most definitely in full swing right now, and what better way to get into a holiday mood than cooking up some fantastic food!
We know that when the weather gets warmer, people tend to reach for food which is cooler, such as salads and sandwiches, but here at Range Experts, we’ve put together a few sumptuous summer food ideas that are perfect to cook for summer without being too heavy on your stomach!
Pasta with Summer Vegetables
With an extremely short prep and cook time, this simple pasta dish incorporates a summery with seasonal vegetables.
We suggest using courgette, peppers and tomatoes to give a beautiful colour to your plate, as well as a fresh summer taste. Baking your vegetables allows them to keep their flavour without adding extra oil for frying.
You could also try garnishing your pasta with basil leaves to give an even fresher taste! Cooking Channel have an excellent summer vegetable pasta recipe available.
Vegetarian Bean Burritos
If you are a vegetarian, why not cook some healthy, delicious bean burritos. Burritos are generally seen as unhealthy, meat packed wraps, but you can easily turn them round into a healthy dinner option for the whole family.
The great thing about bean burritos is that they can be easily re-heated, so you can take them to work for a tasty lunch option.
Made from rice, onions, garlic, jalapeño chilli and pinto beans, this burrito recipe from Martha Stewart is the perfect recipe for summer.
Seared Steak and Creamy Spinach
For all you steak lovers out there, we have the perfect summer solution for you. Martha Stewart provides an excellent recipe for a tasty seared steak dinner which is relatively cheap and easy to make.
Seared steak is an excellent way of perfectly cooking your meat to perfection. Using a pan and salt and pepper seasoned steak, cook over a medium to high heat and cook until the meat is browned.
You can serve your seared steak with a fresh salad, chunky chips or with creamy spinach.
We hope that we have given you some ideas of cooking recipes that you can create over the summer season. Cooking food doesn’t have to be restricted to the colder months, and as we are experts in range installation, we think that cooking is a great thing to do!
