This recipe is down and dirty and our new go-to summertime quick and easy dinner.

Throw one of these tasty burgers on a sprouted Ezekiel bun with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, avocado, and eggless mayo for an easy dinner after you get home from the gym.

With a nice chunk of garlic-rubbed, olive oil-soaked, grilled bread called fettunta, and a glass of chilled white wine, this is a wonderful summer meal.

Grate 2 sweet potatoes (I don't bother peeling).

Soba noodles, hearty and flavorful Japanese noodles made from either buckwheat only or buckwheat and wheat flour, pair perfectly with peppery watercress and a spicy dressing.

I could live on this. It's so easy and yet utterly beautiful looking, I always feel better after eating it.

If the BLT ranks as one of the world's great sandwiches, imagine what the combination can do for a salad.
