Vegetarian Meals That Bring Home the Best of the Market

This time of year, my diet turns almost completely plant-based.

I suppose it’s only natural: Height-of-season summer produce is seductive, with tantalizing shapes and colors, and the kind of sweetness that comes from being freshly picked. This is the magic moment when melons, berries, stone fruit, peppers, tomatoes, corn, beans and squashes collide.

This menu celebrates that moment. It’s not difficult to execute, but it makes great use of a market basket that is full to the brim.

Mexican-Sicilian fusion food: Thomasina Miers’ recipe for crab fideos | Food

Fideos are wafer-thin string noodles that, along with capers, were brought over to Mexico by the Spanish from Sicily, an island they also occupied for a few hundred years. The result was sopa seca (literally meaning dry soup), a fantastically flavoured pasta dish from Veracruz, in which the noodles are sauteed until brown, then simmered in a rich tomato sauce spiked with smoky chipotle relish, plus fresh crab meat, a scattering of capers and fresh lime.
