September’s best in-season recipes
We still have weeks of nice weather to come. Fresh-food chef Paul Finkelstein uses the season’s best in these deliciously simple recipes
Eggplant-slice Caprese Salad
Goat cheese has a wonderful flavour when it has been cooked. You can enjoy this recipe all year round: Pan-fry the eggplant and finish it in the oven at 350?F until it’s soft.
Scallops, Shrimp & Melon Salad
Freshness is key when buying any seafood. But excellent IQF (individually quick-frozen) products are also available in the freezer section at grocery stores.
Bunless “Kiwi Burger”
The so-called Kiwi burger is popular in New Zealand. It’s a beef burger topped with cheese, beets, pineapple, onion, tomato, lettuce and a fried egg. My healthier version is bunless, uses chicken-and skips the fried egg.
