It appears to have finally cooled down here on the West Coast, but here are a few things I made back when it was swelteringly hot.
Agua fresca, inspired by some had at brunch at mohawk bend: watermelon pieces marinated in vodka, then mushed with fresh mint, simple syrup, and seltzer water.
One of many cold noodle salads, inspired by tangy tahini noodles, cold noodles with nori, laziness, and the heat. This one had fried eggplant and celery in addition to the usual culprits of carrots, peas, tempeh, and a dressing of garlic, canola and sesame oil, rice vinegar, and sriracha.
Components of the old standby marinated broccoli lentil salad. For the past few weeks, it was so hot, that just a cold salad or two in the fridge was all I wanted/needed to cook/eat for days.
Much more soon!
