Summer time is the best time to eat clean, in my opinion. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies make it a lot simpler and cheaper. I like to cook lighter things in the summer too. And, as always, I like food that is easy to make ahead. A good example is this goat cheese and tomato tart. Yesterday morning I had time to make a really good breakfast so I decided to make this tart. I have made the recipe exactly as written, and I have made a few tweaks. So far, it has always tasted wonderful. Yesterday I didn't have goat cheese so I used some feta and some quattro fromage from Trader Joe's. I'm not sure I even used the full amount of cheese... that's how flexible this recipe is!
Even with all the other great fresh options available this time of year, to me summertime means peach time! When peaches are available in your area, I know you will be looking for this recipe so I wanted to share it again. This is really the best peach cobbler ever! And I've included directions to make the un-clean version.... just in case! (Trust me, this is a hit at every summer picnic no matter how you make it!)
1 stick butter (8 oz.)
3/4 cup coconut sugar (use white sugar for the regular version)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (use white flour for the regular version)
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups sliced peaches
Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in 9" square baking dish. Mix coconut sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. Pour over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
Slices peaches onto batter. DO NOT STIR. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
Let me know if you have a recipe you'd like cleaned up and we'll see what we can do!!
What are you eating today? Whatever it is, Keep it Clean!
