Spring brings us a new batch of seasonal vegetables. Bright flavors and colors are obvious reasons to embrace the produce of this beautiful time of year. Spring’s first vegetables like crisp lettuces, slender spears of asparagus, leafy spring onions, and fresh peas and green beans join year-round staples like garlic and beets as well as winter favorites nearing the end of their season. Now, since the weather in the spring can be so unpredictable – with some regions still up to their eyeballs in snow and others enjoying significantly warmer weather – this link, www.seasonalfoodguide.org, can tell you, based on the state that you live in, which fruits and vegetables are reaching their peak.
Below are some of spring’s bounty and a delicious Marpe recipe to go with some of those yummy seasonal veggies.
Hopefully this list will inspire you to incorporate the beautiful array of vegetables that are available in the springtime!
