It’s summer! The perfect time to start adding more fruits, veggies, and general plant-based goodness into your diet, right?
Those of you who have been reading for a while know that I have been incorporating more “Meatless Monday” ideas into the recipes and meal plans on the site, and have been working with the kids so that a plant-based dinner is just… dinner. And High School Guy of course remains a lifelong fan of plant-based milks, so I always keep those stocked in the fridge.

Follow the Path to Plant-Based Recipes
In the spirit of the plant-based dietary goodness and savings we’ve been talking about, let me share a new recipe with you guys! This hearty salad featuring Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix is a great dinner starter, or you could easily serve it on its own as a light summer lunch. It’s so quick and easy for a hot day, yet hearty enough to fill you up.
I found all the ingredients I needed for this simple & delicious plant-based meal at my local Meijer.
Warm Mushroom Salad with Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix
4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
16 oz True Goodness organic baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1.5 tsp minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
1/2 tsp thyme
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Earthbound Farm Organic Classic Baby Greens, Spring Mix, 5 oz
Chopped fresh chives, for garnish
Heat 2 Tbsp for about a minute in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add mushrooms and saute for 4 minutes until they begin to brown, stirring occasionally, then add in the garlic, thyme, sea salt, and black pepper.
Continue sauteing over medium heat for about another five minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are browned and have released their liquid. Turn off the heat under the pan.
Stir in the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar until nicely combined, then remove mushrooms to a serving bowl.
Arrange the Earthbound Farm Organic Classic Baby Greens, Spring Mix on four small plates while you let the mushrooms cool until they’re just warm, rather than hot.
Top each plate of spring mix with cooked mushrooms and some of the balsamic-based dressing you’ve created, then garnish with fresh chopped chives.
Plant-Based Meals Are Just That Easy!
Warm Mushroom Salad only takes about 15 minutes to throw together, and you’re aided here by starting with this fresh & easy, triple-washed, Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Greens, Spring Mix. Just look at the vibrant colors in these mixed baby greens — it’s clearly a classic for a reason. All of Earthbound Farm’s products are certified organic and are non-GMO, making it easy to incorporate more plant-based goodness into your summer meals.
