Surprisingly lush. I remember the first time I tried a beet burger: I was a little wary. But it turned out to be tremendously tasty and satisfying, with a great texture. This recipe includes a gluten-free cauliflower bun. It’s also great if you’re trying to cut carbs! If you’re feeling like an extra topping, add dairy or vegan soft cheese. photo + recipe via

6Quinoa and Greens Summer Salad

Broccoli is one of my favorites, especially little florets. I’m a big fan of broccoli salad with walnuts and dried cranberry. But I’m used to seeing this kind of salad with a much heavier dressing. This is a protein-rich freshened-up summer version, and the added greens keep it light and snackable. Try bringing this to your neighborhood block party! photo + recipe via

7Miso Grilled Eggplant
