Quick & Easy Vegetarian Summer Meal

Quick & Easy Vegetarian Summer Meal is something you can have for lunch or dinner any day of the week, but especially for Meatless Monday. This combination of ingredients requires almost no cooking.

Half of the items on the plate come from Washington's Green Grocer; the other half come from Trader Joe's. Neither is a paid contributor ;) I love both.

Last night I needed a quick meal with some color and flavor as a counterpart to the gloomy rainy weekend.

1) Corn: husk the corn and wrap it in aluminum foil and then grill it directly on the gas flame turning occasionally.

2) Feta

3) Tomatoes: sliced and sprinkled with kosher salt

4) Eggplant spread: topped with chopped red onions. This Trader Joe's spread is beyond addicting and can be eaten as a side or spread on toast or used in sandwiches or as a dip.

5) Shishito peppers: blistered in a cast iron with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkled with kosher salt and a bit of feta.

Filling. Colorful. Healthy.
