Longer, lighter days call for fresh and bright meals to cleanse the palette after the hearty food of winter. Eating seasonal fruit and vegetables is great to add variety to your plate, as well as being better for the environment and overall quality of the ingredient.
Here’s some recipe inspiration using what’s in season during spring, that will take you from mid-week meals and virtual dinner parties, to backyard barbecues and picnics.
Add some depth to your spring soups, salads and pies with the humble leek. For a deliciously simple weekend lunch or picnic, try Maria Stuart’s Caramelised leek and feta tart from our anniversary cookbook, Thermomix: Creating something incredible.
Or for a spring evening, enjoy this classic Chicken, leek and corn pie with a leafy green side salad.
Asparagus is back in season and adds a lovely crunch to your meals. For the perfect spring salad that’s both filling and fresh, try this Freekeh salad with pickled avocado. With eight portions, you might just get dinner and lunch out of this recipe.
If you’re looking for something fancy but fast, our Almond crusted salmon with asparagus fettuccine will hit the spot. It takes a total of 35 minutes with Thermomix, so you’ll be ready with dinner in time for your Zoom catch up with friends!
This fruit has a lovely colour and tart flavour, making it great for desserts to cut through the sweetness. Our Pickled fruit salad with honey labne is a unique dessert featuring delicious, cooked rhubarb. Plus, you’ll see just how easy it is to make your own labne with Thermomix!
This Rhubarb and ginger gin fizz recipe is the perfect spring refresher. It’s well worth the wait for the ingredients to infuse, as the result is a fragrant gin you can turn into a delightfully fizzy cocktail or give as a homemade gift.
Eat this sweet, bright orange variety up in spring, before they go out of season in the summer months. For a scrumptious afternoon treat, make our gluten-free Orange and almond cake. It only takes five minutes of your time to whip up, with Thermomix doing the rest.
If you’re searching for bring-a-plate inspo, look no further than this Fennel, freekeh and orange salad. Another tasty freekeh salad on the list and one we just can’t go past because of its sweet and savoury flavours!
