After surviving for too long on lots of hearty stews and rich potato dishes this winter, now that it's spring all I want to eat are Fresh Green Things. Doesn't matter in what context –– soups, sandwiches, salad, pasta –– as long as the green food is fresh and in season, I want to eat it all. All the time.
Do you have a similar feeling? Here are 10 recipes to try out whenever all these fresh green things are at your farmers market or grocery store.
If it's still a little cold where you are, try something a little heartier like the lemony pesto pasta with edamame and almonds. If you're really just looking to eat as many green things as possible, try the Kerala spiced peas or the grilled asparagus with bacon vinaigrette (Mhmm BACON vinaigrette, people).
