Welcome to The Fancy Fork! Your hub for seasonal produce insight and farm-style recipes that are made to satisfy.
Summer has arrived with its abundance of garden-fresh ingredients ready to make the most flavorful, bright and bold recipes! Today’s recipe is inspired by two of my favorite seasonal produce vegetables – potatoes and cucumbers. But, other seasonal ingredients to keep an eye out for are bok choy (amazing for Korean-inspired dishes), mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, lemons/limes, green beans, eggplant, corn, spring greens/arugula, celery, cauliflower, carrots and summer squash. And, because summer isn’t complete without fresh fruit salads, try to incorporate some seasonal fruits like blueberries, bananas, raspberries, stone fruit, mango, grapes, melons, cherries and blackberries.
These (Oven-Baked) Crispy Parmesan Potato Wedges are made with Yukon gold potatoes that are a great source of vitamins B6 and C, as well as potassium and fiber. Adding them properly into your diet may lead to better sleep and lower risk of heart disease. The potato wedges are served with a Homemade Dill Pickle Sauce made with fresh pickles. And, did you know that pickles can help digestion, are high in an antioxidant called beta-carotene, curb sugar spikes and may ease muscle cramps? It’s a win-win!
