Summer is in full swing and that means a heat wave can roll in at anytime. When temperatures start to rise, the last thing you may want to do is turn on the stove and add more heat to the kitchen. The blog team at Greenrock Property Management has some no-cook recipe ideas for you to try, while letting your stove at your Eastbourne apartment (166 Eastbourne Ave) take a vacation.
Smoked Salmon Tostadas
These salmon tostadas with zucchini-radish slaw are simple to prepare, but taste like they took a lot of time and energy. Top and serve these tostadas with sliced avocado and you’ve got a substantial and flavourful meal, without ever turning the oven on.
Zucchini Pesto “Pasta”
You don’t want to turn on the stove and you’re trying to eat lighter and healthier — but you have a craving for pasta that won’t go away. What do you do? Try this no-cook recipe that uses zucchini noodles or “zoodles” rather that pasta noodles. It’s ready in about 15 minutes without adding any heat to the kitchen of your Eastbourne apartment. It will really hit the spot in a heat wave, when nothing but pasta will do.
If you think a summer salad isn’t a satisfying meal, think again. This panzanella uses cubes of bread that soak up a zesty dressing. The salad also features white beans and provolone cheese which add a hearty amount of protein to this substantial salad that keeps the stove off.
This simple but substantial Ploughman’s Platter lunch or dinner will fill you up without heating up your kitchen. You can substitute the sliced ham for any other cold cuts you may prefer. It’s basically a satisfying sandwich, laid out and arranged into component parts and enjoyed Mediterranean-style.
