The 31 Best Recipes to Cook This March
And just like that, we’ve arrived in March! This month marks the optimal time to make a steady transition from cozy fare for the freezing temperatures to lighter, more vivid meals as the days start to grow a bit longer. We’ve still got comforting soups and stews, but now we finally get to embrace a bigger bounty of seasonal produce that’s not just limited to cabbage. Start to incorporate produce like snappy asparagus, peas, and all the citrus fruits. Perhaps you’ll make a fresh and juicy salad, a zesty lemon rice pudding, or a bright pan of stuffed shells.
Let’s not forget how March has a lineup of fun and exciting food-centered holidays, such as St. Patrick’s Day and Pi Day. Maybe you host a big festive party or all you really look forward to are simpler ways to add some holiday spirit to your daily routine. No matter the case, know that there are plenty of recipes you can throw together to celebrate exactly how you prefer to celebrate. If you’ve cleared the whole day to prep for dinner, go for corned beef and cabbage, twice-baked potatoes, and mix together a pan of minty layered brownies while you’re at it. Or to celebrate Pi Day, bake up a fruity, nutty, or even cheesy pie.
A new month also brings about fresh ways to finesse our meals with different flavors and textures. Maybe you expand your horizons with the way you put your favorite kitchen appliance to use — be it the air fryer or Instant Pot. Here, we’ve gathered the 31 best recipes to cook and bake this month — because there’s so much newness and excitement to look forward to in March.
