Spring Seasonal Produce Guide

With the change in season, rustic and wintery root vegetables are going out of style, and quick. I’ve curated a few Spring inspired recipes to kick off the transition from the blistering cold to the sweltering heat. So get cooking, you little flower, you.

Asparagus, Leek and Gruyere Quiche by Martha Stewart

If you’ve followed along with my blog at all, you know that I am a huge Martha advocate, and this is just another reason why. Quiche is light but still savoury. The leeks give it an earthy undertone but the freshness from the asparagus is bright and refreshing.

Strawberry Rhubarb Buttermilk Ice Cream by Dinner Was Delicious

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie was always a staple dessert in my family. It was a little sweet, a little tart but very much a comfort food. When I came across this recipe, I was intrigued - could two of my first loves (ice cream and strawberry rhubarb pie) come together to create the ultimate Spring dessert? Yes, yes they could.

Slowcooker Cowboy Brisket by Country Living

I’m not going to lie to you. I’m not entirely sure what makes this one a “Spring” recipe but as far as recipes go, throwing a brisket into a crockpot with some smoky spices for 9 hours seems like a low maintenance and delicious opportunity; and Spring is all about seizing the day so have at ‘er.

Fresh Spinach Pasta by Smitten Kitchen

It might look daunting at first, but making your own pasta isn’t actually rocket science. Spinach is extra crisp and fresh this time of year so it makes the perfect addition to an otherwise carby dish. Get familiar with different pasta making/shaping methods so that you don’t have to invest in a roller. This dough can work as a ravioli too, just stuff it with cheese.
