There are many reasons why I love Spring, the warmer weather and knowing that Summer is just around the corner make the top of the list, however, the next reason happens to be the wide variety of Spring vegetables available. It’s so exciting to see artichokes, asparagus and fiddle heads in the produce section at my grocery store, just knowing that I have something new to add to my rotation. As someone who enjoys being in the kitchen, using fresh, seasonal ingredients always lend themselves to the best flavors. I mean, do berries in the winter even compare to the sweet, juicy berries of July? While we still have a few months to go before we’re enjoying fresh blueberries and raspberries, we do have a lot of Spring veggies around!
Rhubarb is one of those ingredients that you don’t see outside of the Spring and Summer months. Why not make the best out of this seasonal favourite by enjoying this Strawberry Rhubarb Crostata.
Whenever I think of Spring, asparagus immediately comes to mind. Here’s a favourite side dish Feel Good Asparagus that is so simple and the perfect way to enjoy those bundles of asparagus.
This Chickpea and Spinach Stew is perfect for those rainy Spring days.
This Asparagus and Red Potato Salad is a great dish for those warm Spring days. The ones where you may be bringing out the grill and are in the mood for a more seasonal potato salad.
While I enjoy kale throughout the year, munching on this Kale Pesto Pizza is perfect for Spring.
