I’ve been making the most of cherry season these days and sometimes have to get a bit inventive to use them to the fullest. Here are some ways to make the most of beautiful summer cherries.
Breakfast: Make quinoa and top with almond milk and cherries for a nourishing hot cereal bowl.
Lunch: Pick your favorite whole grain to make a salad with cherries, arugula, almonds, and tarragon.
Snacks: Blend almond milk, creamy almond butter, and cherries to make a delicious smoothie.
Dinner: Grill salmon and serve with couscous combined with cherries, green onions, and toasted almonds.
Dessert: Make a cherry crisp. You may want to throw in some dates or figs to give it a little extra heartiness.
Preserve: Make cherry jam, cherry syrup, or pickled cherries.
