3 PA Produce-Forward Dishes to Lighten Up Dinnertime

We love pasta, like, a lot, but sometimes you just need to lighten things up a bit. Even if you follow the furthest thing from a gluten-free diet, chilling out on the carbs for a meal every few nights each week is a nice change of pace. It’s rare to regret loading up on veggies and protein! We suggest heading to your local farmers market and bringing home a few totes of farm-fresh PA produce — when you’re cooking simple, light dishes, quality is extra important!

Savor Recipes shared three delicious and healthful recipes with us that fully fit the bill for fresh, light dishes. As a bonus, you can make each one of them in 30 minutes or less! First, grab the best yogurt you can find (we love Seven Stars Farm from Phoenixville and Fiddle Creek from Quarryville,), slice up a bulb of fennel, then pillage your spice rack to make a Crispy Chickpea and Spiced Yogurt Bowl, layered with flavor and texture. Skip a trip to that trendy salad spot, and make your own Green Goddess Salad at home, with spinach and arugula, sprouts, cukes, peas, parm and pistachios, all tossed with a super-creamy dressing enriched with avocado and Greek yogurt. And, for those nights when the pizza cravings cannot be quelled, try a Cauliflower Crust White Pizza to scratch the itch without weighing you down.
