A few months ago, I picked up a copy of Ellie Krieger's most recent cookbook, So Easy. I had enjoyed the recipes from her first cookbook, so I knew this one would be worth owning. Just like her first book, this one is filled with healthy recipes and tips for incorporating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains into your diet. Each section is divided between simple and recipes that take a bit longer - for those days when you can spend more time cooking. And, there are plenty of gorgeous photos to entice you into trying something new!
The first recipe I made was the Garlic-Basil Shrimp. Dinner does not get easier than this dish! Shrimp cooks up quickly and with summer in full swing I had fresh basil in my hanging pot ready for clipping. I love using grape tomatoes this time of year because they are oh-so-much sweeter right now.
This dish went together so fast - on the table in just under 30 minutes. Perfect for weeknight cooking. You can find the complete recipe HERE at the Food Network website.
What is your favorite healthy meal to make in the summer months?
