Learn what's in season this March

I’m so glad we made it to March. The days are growing longer already and I love how the spring sunshine illuminates our kitchen. We even spied some fresh green daffodil leaves in the neighbor’s yard yesterday. We’ve just returned from a week in sunny Maui (Grace was delighted by the waves at the beach!), and we’re recovering from some colds that we brought back with us.

Asparagus is on its way and we’ll finally have more fresh fruits and vegetables to work with this month. I’m looking forward to cooking my favorite green curry soon, shown below. You’ll find more seasonal recipes in this post!

spring pea and asparagus pasta recipe

Easily gluten free

“I’m always looking for recipes that include a lot of veggies so this was perfect for me. It was my first time cooking with asparagus, fresh parsley, and scallions (I confused shallots with scallions. They’re both onion-like so I was close!). My favorite thing about this recipe was the flavoring that the lemon juice added and my last favorite was the big bite of parsley that I took! Thanks a lot!” – Loni
