Sautéed Zucchini Blossoms

I spent my first Sunday morning in So Cal at a farmer’s market, of course. I made it out with the best strawberries I’ve ever tasted, beautiful avocados, and some zucchini blossoms given as a bonus by a super kind farmer. I’m lucky that where I’m staying this summer has a ton of produce growing on the property, so I’m set for a few staples. Lemons, lettuces, and herbs are growing abundantly even this early in the season.

Raw Vegetable & Tofu Sandwich

I got back to my parents’ house last night and in short, it’s a smorgasburg of produce here. Having the time to slow down and cook for everyone is something I’ve looked forward to at the end of every semester. It’s a lovely feeling to have the time to make meals and eat them in no particular hurry.

In a truly relaxed fashion, I made myself a sandwich and enjoyed it out in the sunshine. Not my usual setup for food photography, to say the least. Even used an automatic mode on the camera.

Turmeric Cauliflower Carrot Rice

This is the last supper in Boston for a while for me, using up what’s left in the kitchen before I’m gone for the next 4 months. I’m sure I’ve said it before that I thoroughly enjoy the game of making a meal with no plan, and this was one of those games. I’m not saying I want to compete on Chopped or anything wild, but I do enjoy the challenge.

Leftovers Pizza

Like I explained with the cauliflower and chickpea crust pizza: gluten, cheese, and tomatoes are off the table for me. Some might say that’s not pizza, but I can roll with it purely for shape.

In this case, pizza is a vessel to repurpose leftovers and frozen goods.

About the title, leftovers pizza, I’m guilty of preferring to cook all my meals fresh than meal prepping. It’s not the most efficient use of time but cooking is the ultimate therapeutic activity in my book. This past weekend I finally caught a break, and ending up spending 4 or 5 hours simply developing and testing recipes out.
