Spring is one of the most inspiration seasons for cooking, and these vegetarian spring recipes feature the best of the season. New potatoes, asparagus, fresh greens, even a little rhubarb – you’ll find plenty of ideas here.
See below for three sections, divided into salads, soups and stews, and other mains, all made with springtime ingredients. The salads and soups are filling meals and make great dinners as is.
Some spring salads with added protein mostly through beans and lentils, for filling but light meals that work just as well for a packed lunch as a weeknight dinner.
It’s usually still plenty cold enough to have soup in spring, and these recipes are made with ingredients like fresh carrots, leek, peas, and asparagus.
This is where things get really interesting, with pasta, patties, pancakes, and all the other seasonal mains that didn’t fit in above. Many of these recipes are inspired by my garden, so you’ll see some that use a ridiculous amount of chard, for example, because it does take over at some point.
Some recipes here feature broccoli, and for spring, this is purple sprouting broccoli, one of my favourite crops.
