Who doesn’t love a delicious bowl of gazpacho during summertime? But, most folks want super simple recipes in summer so they can enjoy most of their time with family and friends. Well, I got just the recipe  for you and I’m super excited to share!

I created a recipe that is not only delicious but also nutritious.  The secret to this recipe is that you use Victoria Organic Toasted Garlic marinara sauce as the base. I love working with them since they put their ingredients on the front of the label. Simple, real ingredients. No water, paste or sugar added to their pasta sauces.

You’ve got to give this yummy recipe  a try as I know you will not be disappointed. Enjoy.

A savory breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, bacon and avocado is the perfect way to start the day. To create this tasteful breakfast sandwich, 5 simple ingredients are needed. To start, prepare a medium size egg omelet or egg scramble seasoned with black pepper. On one side of the flatbread, place the egg omelet or scramble. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top of the egg omelet and let the cheese melt. Place a few strips of crispy bacon on top of the cheese, then add sliced avocado. Fold over and enjoy!

As a modern twist on a classic, this Flatout flatbread PB&J recipe is more flavorful and packed with fiber. And the best part is it’s kid-approved and easy to prepare in the mornings before work or school. What makes this peanut butter and jelly recipe better than all the rest is the addition of strawberries, banana and granola. To create this nutritious modern twist on an old-school favorite, you need 5 minutes and 7 simple ingredients.

The flatbread acts as the grain and adds protein to the wrap. Spread a dolop of peanut butter onto the flatbread and an equal portion of jam of your choice. Next, slice one strawberry into thin slivers and slice a banana into quarters. Place the sliced strawberries and 2 quarters of the banana on top of the jam. Next, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of crunchy granola. Roll and enjoy! This PB&J will brighten your day and delight your taste buds.
