It’s been a bumper month of seasonal recipes in food blogging land, so steal yourself away and find some tasty inspiration in my round-up of June’s entries to Simple and in Season. If you’re new to this game, this is a link-up for food bloggers that celebrates cooking with seasonal ingredients. It’s perfect for discovering what’s perfect to eat right now and for getting ideas for new things to try.
We probably all take carrots for granted and either eat them raw for dipping or boiled up as an easy side, but Natural Kitchen Adventures has found a way to properly celebrate them in all their glory by roasting them to bring out their naturally sweet flavour.
Check out this wonderful rhubarb cake from Tin and Thyme. This is just the kind of simple bake I adore… served up warm with a scoop of ice cream or a splodge of custard perhaps!
You really can’t beat a home made quiche, and Pebble Soup’s Cheddar and Broccoli spin is just what you need to pack up for a tasty picnic.
Simple and in Season’s founding mother Ren Behan reviewed a recipe box from Marley Spoon with recipes from the much admired Olia Hercules. Ren made these delicious looking Lamb Steaks with Mint Ajika Sauce and shared them with us here.
You only need five ingredients to make Sarah’s easy Portobello Mushroom Puff Pastry Tarts over on Maison Cupcake – these are definitely on my list for picnics this summer. How good do they look?!
Fried Halloumi with Chickpea and Lime Couscous from Onions and Paper looks like a tasty mid-week meal – halloumi really is one of life’s pleasures!
Ninja Killer Cat has made the most of the fleeting asparagus season and brought Oven Baked Asparagus, Bacon, Hard Boiled Quails Eggs With Smoked Paprika Mayonnaise to the party.
I love a good preserve recipe, and Camilla from Fab Food 4 All always comes up with a winner. This month she’s made this divine looking Cherry Jam. Couldn’t you just dive right in?! Fantastic shot isn’t it…
The ProWare blog has rustled up some rather good looking Guacamole for a crowd – you’re welcome at the Feeding Boys party anytime ProWare!
Tales from the Kitchen Shed came up with this rather lovely looking Elderflower Liqueur. I’m thinking about how nice it would be drizzled into prosecco on a summer’s evening…
Are you with me? Hop off here for the recipe
Summer desserts just got a bit gorgeous with this Gluten Free Peach and Cherry Crumble from Easy Peasy Foodie. I wouldn’t mind a bowlful of this right now.
Here’s another lovely dessert idea – Strawberry and Basil Pavlova from Only Crumbs Remain – what a stunning flavour combination.
Camilla’s on a roll with her preserves this month, and has also come up with this Easy Elderflower and Lemon Curd – such a lovely idea. Imagine this on hot buttered toast….
I love a summery breakfast idea, and these Quick Toasted Oats and Fruits Breakfast Bowl from Everyday Healthy Recipes are top of the list to mix things up a bit of a morning.
What a hearty lunch! Stuffed Tomatoes with Bulgur Wheat and Tarragon another delicious idea from Everyday Healthy Recipes
And finally, still with Everyday Healthy Recipes who is clearly on a Simple and in Season roll with this great side of Easy Oriental Swiss Chard and Carrot. What great colours!
Thanks so much to everyone for taking the time to link their lovely seasonal recipes up here this month, it’s been lush visiting lots of different blogs to check them all out.
Join in with Simple and in Season for July!
Simple and in Season is a monthly food blogging event where you are invited to link up any of your seasonal recipe posts – anywhere in the world! Join a thriving community of home cooks who love to share their seasonal creations.
Each month, there will be a round-up of all the entries.
- All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, add a link to this post mentioning Simple and in Season and linking to www.feedingboys.co.uk and then manually add the link to your post in the box on each month’s launch page (click the badge on my Blog sidebar to find the current host)
- The linky will close on the 30th and a round up post featuring all the recipes entered will be posted at the beginning of each new month.
- You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it.
- Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish.
- Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules).
- The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere, and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.
- By entering your link, you are giving me permission to add your photograph to the round-up. I will link back directly to your post when I include you.
- If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
- If you are on Twitter or Instagram, tweet your link/photo adding the hashtag #simpleandinseason or add me @cookingkt and I will re-tweet it.
