It doesn’t get any more Spring than this delicious and nutritious sidekick packed with seasonal produce. Serve next to your favourite roasted or grilled meat, fish or meatless option as a fresh and flavourful side dish.
Spring on a plate
If you want me to name my favourite season the answer will always be Spring. I truly get excited when the cold days change into milder ones and all the Spring plants start to sprout. As a foodie, the best part of this season for me is the flavourful produce it has to offer. So I have plenty of nutritious veggies to choose from when creating my next dish.
Cooking in season
It’s always a good idea to cook with produce in season for more than one reason. You save on money when buying produce that is growing right now in your area instead of opting for imported goods. Moreover, seasonal fruits and veggies pack more nutrients and flavour than produce that is stored for weeks before it is sold. What’s not to love, right?
In this case I took four seasonal veggies to create this side dish bringing some Spring vibes to your plate. What’s more? Topping it with freshly grated lemon zest and parsley adds some extra flavour and freshness. Scroll down for the easy New Potatoes, Wild Garlic and Spring Greens recipe.
