We are so excited to announce that SideChef will be partnering with Partnership for Healthier America (PHA) over the next 12-weeks to celebrate cooking (and eating!) fruits and vegetables alongside their COVID-19 Fresh Food Fund, a program working to distribute fresh produce to those in need. You can donate to support here!
SideChef has gathered 12 culinary partners to share their favorite recipes for cooking with and enjoying fruits and vegetables - this collection of recipes will grow week-by-week, so come back for more!
Samah of @dadaeats is closing out our 12-week recipe celebration with a beautiful fried 'rice' full of lush seasonings. We love how the texture of riced cauliflower gives you that rice-like feel but while also adding in a ton of vegetables that you maybe didn’t expect to get into your system during that day.
Candice of @edgyveg is coming in HOT in week 11 of our #12weeksofFNV campaign with her recipe for Spicy Strawberry Mango Salsa. This summer salsa is a colorful and fresh way to use up extra fruits and vegetables in your fridge all summer long! It is bright, fresh, hydrating and makes the perfect summer snack with tortilla chips, but can also be eaten with greens as a salad.
Priya of @cookilicious has the one-pot wonder of this list! The Indian pasta recipe is for all those who are looking for the best of Indian and Italian cooking fused together. This Indian style pasta is prepared with mushroom, veggies, and an array of spices.
What do you get when you mix grilled summer squash with grilled peppers and onions and a tomato mozzarella salad? An easy, perfect-for-summer-WIN, that's what. Drizzled with syrupy balsamic and finished with fresh basil, this Grilled Vegetable Tomato Mozzarella Caprese from @garlicandzest is your new favorite summer salad coming in at the perfect time for peak summer tomatoes.
These TAHINI SEED & NUT BARS from @delicious.monster are absolutely delicious and come together in a matter of minutes. This recipe is vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and can be made with a handful of pantry staples to create the perfect grab and go snack.
Traci Houston, of @thegestationaldiabeticchef gives us a recipe for a Jamaican Sweet Potato with Mango Salsa, his delicious comfort food is a copycat of the Claim Jumper’s Jamaican Sweet Potato - it packs major nutrients!
Katie Ferarro of @fourtifiedfam & @babyledweanteam brings a baby-friendly veggie burger! This is a nutritional powerhouse that the whole family can enjoy. The burgers pack iron from the black beans, the vitamin C from the sweet potatoes help your baby’s body absorb it. The dipping sauce helps moisten the burgers as dry foods can pose a choking hazard for little ones (and frankly, it's just a delicious add-on!).
The team at @stepstoolchef have created a kid-friendly smoothie recipe and three-part guide that allows ANY kid ANY age to make the smoothie of their dreams. Following the guide's three-part smoothie solution your next smoothie only requires whatever fruit you have on hand, some liquid, and a boost of nutrients from chia seeds.
Kristina Cho from @eatchofood presents Citrus Chicken Larb. Larb is spicy, sweet, savory, funky, bright, sour, herbaceous, crunchy, refreshing, and so satisfying. It's also a great way to use up surplus crunchy greens in your fridge!
Celeste Meredith from @thewholeserving presents a pizza that celebrates summer vegetables and fresh greens! Hot tip: to make this even easier, roast the vegetables when you're doing your weekly meal prep ahead of the night you plan on making this to cut down on recipe prep time!
