The Recipes

Spring

Eating in season is an important way to reduce our carbon footprint. The short but much anticipated asparagus season starts in April which also brings the first of the New Potatoes. The brassicas in the form of cabbages and purple sprouting broccoli provide real colour and crunch, as do the radishes and spring onions.

What’s in season?

Asparagus, purple sprouting broccoli, savoy cabbage, spring green cabbage, cauliflower, jersey royal new potatoes (April & May), kale, lettuce, raddish, spinach, spring onions

Everything you need is right here. Great seasonal family recipes. You can even change the number of servings so everything works perfectly for your family. Save money and reduce your food waste by searching by ingredient for recipe ideas on how to use those leftovers up.
