Robyn Griggs Lawrence thumbnailHere in Colorado, we’re in that weird in-between place in the growing season, after the early spring herbs and veggies but before the fresh tomatoes and summer squashes hit their prime. On this busy summer Meatless Monday, I need a quick, tasty and versatile recipe that will let me take advantage of whatever I find—or don’t find—at the market. Julia Butterfly Hill’s Top Anything Sauce is perfect for this time of year. I’ll whip up a batch (it truly takes minutes) and use it to dress up steamed veggies and quinoa for a protein-packed, meatless meal. (This sauce can also be used as a salad dresssing.)
