A few vegetarian meals for this week...

As many of you know, my family eats local during warm weather months. Here are a few of this week's yummier dinners. Some are Northwest-specific, as we have a late growing season and are about 3 weeks behind the rest of the country.

Vegetable tempura with brown rice, cherries on the side
Zucchini quesadillas with tomato salsa
Whole wheat spaghetti with marinara, grilled veggies like asparagus and zucchini in sauce
Vegetable quiche with brown rice crust
Vegetable pizza

Eating locally is getting a little easier as the market stalls swell with items other than our area's trademark early crops: asparagus and blueberries. Both are good, but don't comprise any kind of balanced diet. Right now we are in the vegetable phase that my dear husband so dislikes, but melon season is approaching.
