March Seasonal Produce Guide and Recipes


It’s hard to believe that Spring is right around the corner when we’re still having heavy snow days, eating chili and sipping wassail. There are a few tulip greens poking their heads up even through the snow though, so I know its nearing. Spring is a hopeful time of year isn’t it?! For our family now even more so after the winter we had last year and then coming out of recovery in the Spring. It’s all new greens and breaths of fresh air and I’ll take it!

The early Spring months of the past I’ve mainly loaded up on artichokes and asparagus like in these recipes: Spinach Artichoke Pizza, Fava Bean and Asparagus Orzo Pasta, Chicken and Asparagus Gratin, Asparagus and Sun Dried Cherry Risotto, and Quinoa with Asparagus and a Fried Egg. This year, I’ll branch out a little and embrace some of the other foods on the list so stay tuned!
