Vegan MoFo ~ Late Summer Foods
I wasn't completely sure how to take this prompt so I am running with what came to mind first which was...what IS food? Food is fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, grains...not packaged or prepared stuff. FOOD is what makes up those prepared items, right, so for this post I will focus on 4 of my favorite summer foods and by that I mean 4 individual ingredients.
The first 4 late summer foods/ingredients that I LOVE are...Watermelon, Squash, Corn, and Tomatoes. I will expand on that each on in just a moment but first take a look at this Watermelon Gazpacho I made not too long ago.
I LOVE watermelon and could eat it all year if it was available.
Another food I LOVE for a different reason is various squashes! The main reason I LOVE squash is because there are so many different types of it. Zucchini is one of the best and more readily available. Last year I made Raw Vegan Salt & Vinegar "Chips" made from Zukes in my Dehydrator.
I was going back thru my archives and didn't see this photo posted apparently I forgot to put it on my blog! But I did put it on my InstaGram!
Oh well...you get the idea!
That leaves us with my 4th choice for Late Summer Foods...TOMATO...and for some reason Blogger won't let me post anymore photos today, sorry about that...but we all know what tomatoes look like and they are oh-so-good!!!!
