Summer is just that time of the year when adding more heat to your already steaming body will get you frowning if not raging. It can also get sky-high especially if the summer heat gives you the hunger pangs. These affordable summer recipes are your friend!

Alas! The winter chill is behind us and we’re approaching the warmest time of the year. In winter, most people spend the better part of their budget on heater bills and food that easily generates heat in the body. Summer is quite different: you don’t need to fill yourself up regularly but also the extreme heat tends to burn up fat faster through sweat. You might find you require constant dieting which might become expensive if you lack a credible plan.

We’ve got your back. Below is a list of summer recipes you probably never gifted your family. We’ve made sure that the list contains the most sumptuous compilation but affordable to all! Don’t fret! We don’t plan to bombard you with unhealthy meal plans to get you podgy as though we don’t give a cent about you!

Cilantro Lime Rice with Spiced Tofu

Ever been in a food limbo that gets your head rolling? Anytime we decide on doing rice, it’s mostly a battle of tastes and will!

For now, we’ll settle on a mixture of cilantro lime rice over greens and baked spiced tofu. But then again, have you tried out celery rice with meatballs? If you haven’t, you need to get the best juicer for celery as soon as yesterday!

Instant Pot Farro

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Furthermore, you have the flexible option of using any kind of potatoes available to you – whether you want Yukon gold, russet, or red potatoes. You’re also open to mixing around any herbs at your disposal. Add chopped parsley, cracked pepper, and clove garlic to your dried rosemary for a richer taste.

Cowboy Caviar Bean Dip

This is a crossbreed between a fresh salsa and a bean salad and is sometimes called the Mexican Caviar. Avocado added to the mixture brings about a refreshingly creamy taste that everyone on the table will love. For a richer taste, consider using smoked paprika and fresh corn. The most common caviar makes use of black-eyed peas and black beans.
