Zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, peaches, melons, corn – late summer produce can be the best! From soups to salads, main dishes and desserts, here are our 21 favorite plant-based recipes to take advantage of late summer fruits and vegetables.
Grilled Corn Salad with Parmesan & Parsley
This versatile, warm Grilled Corn Salad with Parmesan & Parsley is easy to make but the result is truly elegant. The corn is fresh and juicy, kernels bursting as you bite into them. While hot they are combined with Parmesan cheese, which melts and turns creamy. The parsley adds color and a welcomed herbaceous freshness and the black pepper should be added generously. Get the recipe for Grilled Corn Salad with Parmesan & Parsley.
Cantaloupe, Cucumber and Burrata Salad with Basil & Mint
Salads don’t have to rely on leafy greens and our Cantaloupe, Cucumber and Burrata Salad with Basil & Mint will certainly convince you! Sweet melon, cool crunchy cucumbers, shreds of magenta radicchio, fresh basil and mint and creamy burrata cheese. All drizzled with a light vinaigrette. This is an unexpected and welcomed addition to summer cookouts. Get Cantaloupe, Cucumber and Burrata Salad with Basil & Mint recipe here.
Grilled Tomato Peach Salsa
This Grilled Tomato Peach Salsa came about after we had been grilling fruit (to great success) and had some extra peaches around. The smoky flavor from the grill elevates the simple ingredients. Get the recipe for Grilled Tomato Peach Salsa.
Garlic & Herb Corn on the Cob

Ratatouille (rat-tuh-TOO-ee) is based on the classic late-summer vegetable stew featuring eggplant, zucchini and red bell peppers. Our version uses scallion greens instead of onions and uses the oven to roast the vegetables with olive oil, which concentrates the vegetable’s flavors. Then the veggies are combined with fresh tomatoes on top of the stove and cooked until soft, silky and rich. Flavored with thyme, rosemary and low FODMAP garlic, this vegan dish is incredibly versatile. Get the recipe for Ratatouille.

Meaty Vegan Moussaka
What do you need to make the BEST ever vegan moussaka? I would say layers of roasted eggplant slices, a hearty tomato-based ragú sauce with vegan ground meat, and a creamy white bechamel baked together. We made this recipe with THREE different ground beef alternatives. All came out scrumptious, but the meatiest of them was TVP. Get the recipe for Meaty Vegan Moussaka.
