What to Cook in June? Eggplant
Coming into season later this month is eggplant, a summer glossy and plumb vegetable, a perfect base for pasta and meatless favorites. Look for eggplants that feel heavy and have firm and glossy skin. Avoid those with wrinkled skin, soft spots, or brown patches.
Eggplant Parmesan is a classic Italian casserole dish with disputed origins yet collectively attributed to southern Italy, most especially… Naples, although the dish is widely popular all over the country, not to mention… the world.
Adding healthy greens like spinach or kale makes this overnight egg bake an easy and delicious morning treat!
What to Find in June? Rhubarb
It's rhubarb season! Time for wide slices of rhubarb pie, cakes, and more. Look for stalks that are firm, crisp and blemish free. If leaves are still attached, choose stalks with leaves that look fresh. Refrigerate unwashed rhubarb stalks for up to one week.
Strawberries are dotting the fields green this month. Add them into salads, sauces, desserts and more. Or top your favorite pancakes with these sweet delicious berries. Before they're gone, be sure to make a quick jam.
