15 Best Vegetarian Summer Recipes from Running in a Skirt

Hi everyone!

I’m doing a happy dance because summer is here.  Although the unofficial start of summer is this weekend with Memorial Day the mountains have been filled with warm, gorgeous days for the past two weeks.  I have been literally brimming with excitement over all things summer.  The Hubs and I have already started eating dinner outside, cooking with fresh herbs from my garden and even hosted our first cookout of the season. <—I’m sharing all the highlights and recipes from the cookout tomorrow!

Summer is hands down my favorite.  I even like the food of the season the most.  From fresh berries, squash to grilled everything I can’t get enough of summer eats.  And obviously I’ve been known to eat my weight in watermelon.

So in honor of the new season’s arrival and all the glorious food that goes with it, today I’m sharing my best vegetarian summer recipes.  These range from my personal favorites, ones I cook all the time and even some that are most popular on Running in a Skirt.  It’s a great way to start your menu planning for the season.

And remember even if you aren’t vegetarian, try using these recipes at least once a week to introduce more fresh veggies into your diet!   I specialize in making meatless dishes that both meat eaters (aka The Hubs) and vegetarian like.  There are also lots of great healthy side dish options if I haven’t convinced you to go meatless at least some of the time yet. 🙂

    These all sound amazing! While I do love grilling some burgers and chicken, I’m always a fan of veggie filled side dishes. And YES to being so excited about summer. I’m a teacher and we have 11 days left with kids, wahoo!!!!

    We love to eat meals outside in the summer. We have this comfy deck set, which has been a huge blessing. 🙂 And I bet you’re going to have a lot of good meals and summer cooking this year.
