THE RECIPES
Heirloom Tomato and Grilled Halloumi Panzanella with Basil Oil

If you've never grilled halloumi, what are you waiting for?! The flavor and texture is a cross between mozzarella and feta but it doesn't fully melt, making it perfect for grilling. Top with some juicy tomatoes, sourdough bread, kale and a vibrant basil oil dressing and you have a quintessential end of summer salad. 
 

Feedfeed Tip Massaging the kale with lemon juice before tossing it with the rest of the salad ingredients helps to tenderize the leaves making it easier to digest while giving it a more palatable texture. 
Sweet Potato Waffle Stack by @bondiharvest

Waffles on a weeknight? Yes, please!  These savory sweet potato waffles might kick your favorite sweet version to the curb.

Summer eating at its finest!  If you need a shortcut, consider substituting the grilled chicken thighs with shredded rotisserie chicken.

Roasted Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, and Toasted Ciabatta by @lindseyeatsla

The only way to improve peak season tomatoes? Roast them with a generous glug of olive oil and a few cloves of garlic!

Feedfeed Tip Craving something a little heartier? Make 1 pound of pasta and toss it with the roasted tomatoes; smashing them with a fork slightly to create a rustic sauce. 
Hot Honey and Soppressata Pizza 

Pizza night, meet hot honey. You're welcome. This simple pizza crust is made with beer for added flavor, but you could use warm water if you prefer.

Bet you can't eat just one of these crispy chickpea crepes (aka Socca).  Top them with avocado, tomatoes, salad, fried eggs; the options are endless! Plus, the batter can be kept in an air-tight jar in the fridge for up to a week so be sure to make a double batch!
