The heat waves are quickly approaching and we are not mad about it! These hot days are perfect for socializing, swimming and well…not cooking inside! Instead of heating up your already hot kitchen with more heat from the stove, here are some recipes that you can whip together on a hot day that are simple yet satisfying.

1. Crunchy Thai Salad with Creamy Peanut Dressing

This sweet and tangy salad is filled with color and is topped with a nutty dressing that will make you forget that you didn’t need a stove for supper!

2. Watermelon, Radish, Orange and Goat Cheese Salad

This radishes are currently blowing my mind with the beauty and great taste. Mix some earthy flavors with a little sweet and salty to achieve the perfect summer salad.

3. Temaki Sushi

These little savoury treats are so delicious and 100% worth the extra time it takes to hand roll each one. Filled with some bright veggies, you will be reaching for a plateful of these!

4. Veggie Tacos with Black Beans and Cabbage

Tacos without heat? Definitely! Don’t let the hot weather stop your Taco Tuesday from happening. These flavorful veggie tacos will blow you regular tacos out of the water.

5. No Mayo Broccoli Salad with Blueberries and Apple

A healthy alternative to the regular broccoli salad and filled with tons of antioxidants. Topped with a yummy dressing that isn’t packed with fat, you can eat this with a piece of mind.

6. Cantaloupe and Mozzarella Caprese Salad

Beautiful enough to be served at a formal gathering, but easy enough to be made for a cool supper in the sunshine. It’s the best of both worlds!

7. Vegan Summer Rolls

Can you believe these colors are natural? It’s simply lovely. Roll up a whole pile of nutrients for supper, dip in some creamy sauce, and you won’t be disappointed.

8. Moroccan Chickpea Quinoa Power Salad Recipe

Make a big batch of this salad at the beginning of the week and your dinner prep time will be almost non-existent when you come home from a long day at work.

9.  Classic Bruschetta with Balsamic Glaze

Some delicious bruschetta is always a must! But to be honest, on a hot day, I’d pick up some balsamic reduction at the grocery store and skip on home to make bruschetta in a matter of minutes.

10. Lemony White Bean, Arugula and Prosciutto

Maybe it’s just my love for prosciutto but this salad looks amazing! Get lots of protein in your supper and stay away from the stove with this amazing recipe.
