Brown-Rice Cakes with Toppings
Puffy brown-rice cakes are just as versatile as toasts for layering on the flavor (and they're gluten-free).
Freezer Dill Pickles
Got a bumper crop of cucumbers? Make a batch of these easy pickles and stash them in the freezer -- you're going to love having the tangy treats in your back pocket in the months to come.
Rice-and-Bean Salad Bowl with Tahini Sauce
Our glorious grain bowl calls for making the brown rice in advance, but even if you start from scratch, you can get the whole dish on the table in under an hour.
Gordon's Breakfast Cocktail
Our spin on the classic cocktail (a lighter, brighter alternative to a Bloody Mary) swaps out the usual hot sauce and Worcestershire for fresh jalapenos and mint from the garden. The resulting drink is spicy, savory, and quite possibly the best way to use up your late-summer bumper crop.
