The Friday 5: Real food recipes #19

Friday 5 with YayYay's Kitchen Facebook banner

Welcome to this nineteenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week.

Fresh vegetables and colorful dishes rule!

This week’s roundup starts with an apple cider pancake topping recipe that couldn’t be simpler, so simple, in fact, that the author shouts out the entire recipe in a caption under the dish’s photograph! Midway through the holiday weekend, when we needed to chill a bit, we tasted a so-easy, refreshing, one-dish salad supper, made as you like it with veggies and fruits–almost anything fresh in the fridge and pantry.

On Tuesday I stumbled upon a recipe that claims to take the hassle out of puff pastry with colorful, delicate raspberry puff turnovers. I’m hoping I can get flaky pastry using their method and recipe and my whole wheat flour. What do you think?

Wednesday brought a savory veggie side dish, roasted cabbage steaks, another recipe so easy that Elys Farmers Market shared it simply in one sentence on Facebook. Finally, we got a taste of both spring and summer vegetables tossed with pasta dressed with hand blended wild-garlic oil. Sadly, we States-side folks will have to make do with commercial garlic, unless we’re very fortunate to live where we can forage the weed.

Recipes of the Day from May 28-Jun 2, 2016

Most Fridays you’ll find at least five recipes here, maybe six or seven, depending on how the foodie stars aligned. Most are vegetarian, some vegan. Occasionally the Recipe of the Day includes meat or meat stock. YayYay’s is a flexitarian whole-foods kitchen.
