Minimalist Baker’s Best New Recipes for Summer

Minimalist Baker has always been one of our top go-to food blogs for unique and easy-to-make recipes. The arrival of summer means tons of fresh, seasonal produce, and with this comes the inspiration for new recipes. Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet treat or in search of ideas to serve at your next barbeque, Dana and her team have got you covered. Here are a few of our favorites:

Cucumber Salad With Dill & Mint

Cucumbers are a super healthy and hydrating vegetable full of nutrients, but if we’re being honest, they’re a little bland on their own. In this recipe, the cucumbers act as a refreshing backdrop to some flavorful seasonal herbs, and fresh feta cheese offers a tangy, salty bite. We love it as a snack or side dish to serve at any summer barbeque. 

Vegan Strawberry Milkshake

While it’s probably not 100% accurate to call this milkshake “healthy,” it’s definitely a less-processed option to satisfy any craving for something cold and sweet. Coconut milk ice cubes act as a thick and creamy base and fresh strawberries add a deliciously sweet flavor. 

BBQ Tempeh Sandwiches

If you’re in need of a plant-based offering for your next cookout, look no further. Tempeh smothered in tangy barbeque sauce provides the perfect burger substitute while avocado and a sweet and spicy slaw cover all of the flavor bases.
