These are based on the recipe in the cookbook How to Cook Everything.

Last of Summer Stir Fry

My CSA box keeps coming up eggplants! I know fall is almost here, so I made this stirfry of what should be the last of summer's vegetables.

Chilled Eggplant Soup

From Not Eating Out in New York - http://noteatingoutinny.com/2009/08/23/chi
lled-eggplant-soup/

For those hot summer months when eggplant is abundant but the yearning for hot soup is not.

Pumpkin Spice Fudge Cookies

I am already getting winter squash from my CSA!! So far, I've been roasting, pureeing, and freezing it. I think this will be one of the first recipes I make come fall.

I got this from this website:

Salmon Stuffed Hatch Chile Rellenos

It's Hatch chile season again - whoo-hoo!!

If you don' t have access to Hatch chiles, this will also work with Poblanos.

Eggplant and Red Pepper Terrine

I get overloaded with eggplants and sweet peppers every time I do a CSA pickup. I found this recipe today on Simply Recipes. They recommend you use the fresh mozzarella packed in water - nutrition info is calculated for part-skim.

Serve this cold for a refreshing summertime meal.

Zucchini Bread

This makes 2 loaves.

Poblano Chile Rellanos

Adaped from Macheesmo - I added my own salsa recipe.

Summer Squash Pizza with Bread Machine Dough

Hmmm, what to do with all the fresh veggies I'm getting from the farm? This pizza is a tasty way to use those summer treats.

Maple Glazed Eggplant Casserole

I threw this together last night when I wasn't sure what to eat. It came out well.

Honey Mustard Chik'n and Summer Squash Casserole

A honey mustard sauce covering Quorn Chick'n and summer's bounty. Sunchokes are Israeli artichokes - substitue small potatoes or turnips if you don't have any.

Lemon Cucumber Tofu Salad

Adopted from 101 Cookbooks

Twice Baked Potato

I adapted this recipe from Macheesmo. This recipe counts one serving as one whole potato. If you're like me, you might find that you can only eat half a potato.

If you are not making 4 potatoes, be sure to adjust the ingredients accordingly.

Vegetarian Baked Potato with Broccoli

I feel very full after eating one half of a potato - my boyfriend, on the other hand, will eat one large potato easily. Adjust your servings accordingly - nutritional stats are for one half of a good sized Idaho potato.

Blueberry Banana Bread

Mom's coming town and it's summertime! This will make her happy, and use summer's bounty. :-)

Fish Tacos

Tasty, healthy fish tacos. The fat is high, but it's healthy fat from avocados. :-) You can omit the olive oil if you have non stick pans. Prep time goes fast if you use your food processor to make the salsa!

Sesame Noodles with Red Cabbage

I got this from Macheesmo! Best served cold or at room temperature. Add some extra vinegar to refresh leftovers.

Summer Fresh Vegetarian Pasta

This is awesome with garden fresh tomatoes and herbs.

Vegetarian Tacos

Yummy and healthy alternative to beef!

Vegetarian Chik'n and Broccoli Al Fredo

A low-fat, vegetarian version this classic al fredo dish. Sure to please even the meat eaters in your family!
