During the warm seasons, keeping your cuisine light and fresh is a requirement. The last thing you need is to feel heavy or over-stuffed when it’s humid and hot outside. Here are a few light summer recipes that are straightforward to make and will fill you up though not lead you to feel heavy or sluggish.
Baked Kale Chips
Everybody loves a good crunch (or to trick yourself by creating something that seems like junk food). Baked kale chips are the ideal crunchy yet still healthy snack that’s perfect for hot weather. Take away the stems of your kale leaves and cut into 1 inch bites. This may leave you with 1 or 2 cups of raw kale. Make sure to clean and dry completely.
Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and 3 cloves of minced garlic and spread over a cookie sheet. Put it into a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes, tossing it halfway through. Add some parmesan cheese and put it back into the cooker for 3 minutes (or till the cheese is crispy). Scoop onto a plate with a paper towel over it (to catch the leftover oil) and serve at a comfortable temperature. These kale chips are light and ethereal but still are salty and meet that junk food craving.
Dill Chilled Salmon
Fish is a healthy protein to eat during the summer seasons, but a hot meal is not invariably what you may be craving. This dish is particularly simple to prepare ahead, and since it’s a chilled dish, it is refreshing and tasty.
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. You’ll need one or two private sized filets of salmon with the skin left on. In a bowl, mix together dried dill, Dijon mustard, a touch of mayo, and 3 cloves of minced garlic. To prepare your filet, wash it, dry it, and cover with olive oil and flavour with salt and pepper. Put it on a baking sheet and smother in your dill mix. Bake for 15 minutes dependent on the thickness of your filet. Put it in the fridge till cool. Splatter with fresh dill to serve. You can serve it by itself or with bread.
Creamy Yogurt Fruit Salad
This is a simple and refreshing fruit salad that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Cut up strawberries, apples, grapes, and fresh pineapple and throw into a huge bowl. In a littler bowl, mix together fat free vanilla yogurt, honey, and lemon. Toss your fruit gradually with your yogurt mix. Speckle with fresh mint. This is straightforward to make, and you can substitute your favorite yogurt flavors and favorite fruit in.
