What to cook this week with in-season produce from your local farms, markets, CSA's & gardens.
Asparagus, strawberries, arugula, hakurei turnips, spinach and chive blossoms are all in season and coming into our kitchens as we bring in the essential flavours of spring. This week's recipes are a good mix of light, bright, sweet, crunchy, chewy, mild and green, plus that lovely classic old bay spice with a cajun vibe.
Recipe & meal ideas to try
Strawberry smoothie bowl with a Goji Sunflower Cereal.
Asparagus & Spinach Scramble makes a great mid-week meal you can repeat ~ serve w/ hakurei turnip salad.
Old Bay Spiced Chicken & spiced dirty southern-inspired rice w/ asparagus & spinach ~ serve w/ arugula salad.
Chive Blossom Vinegar is a fun recipe and a great way to create gorgeous vinegar with a delicate chive flavour so you can enjoy the spring blossoms all year round. Great for salad dressings, vinaigrettes and fun drinks like blood mary.
Wishing you vibrant health and warm spring vibes ~ Chef Karina Hines.
