Green goddess is a classic formula for a refreshing salad dressing on goddess bowls, a lovely spread for sandwiches and wraps, and even a spoonable soup. Now, it’s the silky-smooth, pastel green pasta sauce you’ve been looking for, made even better with the addition of gnocchi. This dish is brimming with seasonal veggies and packed full of herbs, including fresh basil, tarragon, chives, and dill. And of course, you’ll get pillowy soft gnocchi in every bite.

Put squash, hummus, and pickled shallots in front of me, and I will make one mean taco. These vegetarian tacos have layers of tender summer squash (imagine them picked right from the garden), whipped garlicky hummus, smoky tahini sauce, and za’atar pickled shallots layered in warm corn tortillas. It’s the perfect composition of color, texture, and bold flavor you’ll emulate in every taco hereafter.

If you love cream of spinach dip, chickpea anything, creamy white pizza, and lots of melty cheeses, you’re going to love this spin on a traditional flatbread. One of the best parts of this recipe is that you’ll buy pre-made flatbread in a package of two, which is great because we love doubling up as an easy-to-make vegetarian dinner or an app for that cocktail party over the weekend.

Strawberries, in a pasta salad? Yup, you read that right. News flash: Strawberries aren’t just for dessert; their sweet and slightly tart flavor lends itself perfectly to savory dishes. We took the building blocks of the ever popular strawberry spinach salad, threw in some spiral pasta, and added creamy goat cheese, crunchy toasted almonds, delicate shallots, and fresh mint and basil to make it a real party.

With a homemade peanut dressing, sliced chicken, sweet potato, spinach, and avocado, this healthy dinner is one we love to meal prep at the beginning of the week, then assemble and feast on all week long.

Low-Carb Turkey Gyro Bowl

Our bowl starts with a layer of garlic-lemon cauliflower rice. If you’re on the fence about cauliflower rice, we highly suggest trying it sautéed. Once most of the moisture has cooked out, it really does take on a rice-like texture, and a dose of garlic and lemon zest complements the earthiness of the veg. It’s the perfect foundation for smoky gyro-spiced turkey, bright cucumber-tomato salad, and tangy tzatziki.

Spring Cobb Salad

This lightened-up Cobb salad has lots of crunchy in-season veggies and a creamy lemon-dill dressing spiked with raw garlic. A smattering of croutons (homemade is best if you’ve got the time) add texture, and a healthy serving of eggs and avocado make this salad hearty enough to be dinner.

Few dishes mean “spring” like pasta primavera. Primavera in the name alone brings to mind fresh veggies, like zucchini, English peas, leeks, and peppers, all of the things beginning to bloom for a vibrant season of produce ahead. Feel free to swap in whatever you can find at the farmer’s market.

Grilled Cabbage Steaks

Hear us out: While cabbage is a star side dish, it also makes for a perfect main. It’s hearty, substantial, and is surprisingly great on the grill. If you’re looking for an alternative to steak for your summer BBQ, turn to these cabbage “steaks” instead. We give ours the loaded treatment, but these steaks are nothing if not versatile. Grill a few up, add on your toppings, and let the BBQ begin!
