Wow.  So here we are at month 12.  August.  I’m so glad that our host, Andi from The Weary Chef, put together this lovely list of seasonal ingredients for us to work with:

  • pistachios
  • wine
  • mint
  • gluten-free flour (coconut, rice, almond, etc.)
  • red pepper flakes
  • fish
  • agave nectar
  • applesauce
  • blueberries
  • parmesan cheese
  • milk

I know there’s already a lot of pumpkin happening in the food blogging world, but I’m not ready to turn my back on fresh summer produce just yet.

Grilled Corn & Blueberry Flatbread with Whipped Goat Cheese & Basil Vinaigrette | Baking a Moment

This recipe is fast, easy, fresh, and seasonal.  We are in transition mode here at my house.  The kids have finished up their summer day camp program, and are starting school and fall baseball.  There’s a whole new routine to get used to.  It’s a little bit of a challenge for everyone (especially mom), so I really welcome dinners like this on busy weeknights.

Corn & Blueberry Flatbread with Basil Vinaigrette & Pistachios | Baking a Moment

If you take nothing else away from this post, let it be the basil vinaigrette.  I’m telling you, it is phenomenal!  A little tangy with lemon, a little sweet with agave (or honey), and just bursting with fresh, herbal, BASIL-ness.  You’ll have extra left over from the flatbreads, and you won’t be sorry.  I want to put it on ALL the things.  Whole wheat pasta and veggies will be tossed in it.  Caprese salads will be drizzled with it.  Oven fries will be dipped in it, and crusty bread will mop it up.

For the flatbread, you can follow my lead and just use store bought whole wheat naan, or you can make your own.  I have a recipe for homemade naan here, and here is my favorite pizza dough recipe.  <–Try grilling it!

Top it with this light and fluffy whipped goat cheese, and then load it up with summery toppings.  Tender greens, grilled corn, juicy blueberries, that amazing vinaigrette, and some toasted pistachios for crunch.
