In honor of Mother's Day, we've rounded up satisfying, homemade meals that look and taste amazing and are perfect for a celebratory spring brunch. While these dishes are sure to make mom’s day extra special, you’ll want to keep these in your summer recipe box all season long. Whether mom prefers breakfast in bed, a more formal sit-down meal, or an easy, breezy lunch in the park, these recipes can all be whipped up in less than 30 minutes so that you can spend more quality time with the special lady in your life, and less time in the kitchen.
YumUniverse gives the favorite a healthy makeover that swaps in olive oil for heavy butter and yields amazingly fluffy pancakes without all the unhealthy fat.
Kale Breakfast Salad
Make a savory salad that mom will love on Mother’s Day, and all summer long, with this colorful recipe from Melissa d’Arabian’s Supermarket Healthy. A vitamin-packed base of kale is tossed with apple slices, turkey bacon, and Cheddar cheese, and then topped with an egg. Tailor the eggs to mom’s favorite preparation, whether it be sunny side-up, hard boiled, poached, or scrambled.
Smoked Salmon Pizza
For a fancy dish that is sure to impress, try this smoked salmon pizza from Spoon Fork Bacon. Rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, this recipe is especially rich in flavor thanks to spicy baby arugula, aromatic dill, zesty lemon, and tangy capers.
Asparagus, Mushroom, and Ricotta Tartine
Try these asparagus, mushroom, and ricotta tartines, or open-faced sandwiches, from Food and Other Stuff. This version calls for cremini mushrooms, which have more flavor than the white button variety, and asparagus, a spring favorite that’s rich in folic acid and a good source of fiber.
Healthy Cheesecake Soufflé
Don’t feel guilty about enjoying dessert as the main course with this cheesecake soufflé from Muy Delish, which replaces cream cheese and sour cream with protein-rich nonfat Greek yogurt. You’ll get a hint of sweetness from the vanilla extract, but feel free to switch it up with almond extract instead for a different flavor profile. Making and serving the cheesecakes in ramekins keeps portions in check, looks great on the table, and makes clean up a breeze.
