Scrumptious Saturdays is my series of weekly roundups. I am frequently surfing around the interweb looking at lovely pictures of food and finding delicious new recipes that I want to try out. I thought it might be handy for you if I shared some of my favourites with you each week.
After last week’s sweet fest for Scrumptious Saturdays, I thought we’d best take a look at some healthy seasonal recipes this week! I find it so easy to eat my vegetables once spring/summer veg hits the farmers markets, as there are so many delicious vegetables to choose from!
Debi from Life Currents has combined several of my favourite seasonal things in her pretty Spring Salad. Asparagus has just come in to season in Scotland and I will certainly be seeking some at the Edinburgh farmer’s market today!
I will also be looking out for artichokes, which are just about to come into season in the UK. I’ve never actually cooked an artichoke before but Shelby from Grumpy’s Honeybunch has made it look easy with this Garlic Roasted Artichoke recipe, which she serves with Garlic Saffron Aioli! Delish!
Cauliflower is in season pretty much all year round in the UK and I often make cauliflower cheese in the colder months. The sweeter summer varieties of cauliflower will be ideal for this intriguing recipe for raw Indian Wild Rice from Joanne of What’s On the List.
In other news, I was delighted to have a couple of my seasonal blog posts featured by some bloggers in the USA!
My recipe for Wild Garlic and Hazelnut Pesto was included in this amazing round-up of pasta recipes by Heidy from The McCallums Shamrock Patch! Thanks Heidy!
My article on Urban Foraging for Spring Tonics was included in this round up of all things foraging by Dana and Joel of Well Preserved. Thanks Dana and Joel!
So tell me, dear reader, what is your favourite seasonal veg at the minute? Is it Spring where you are?
P.S. If you liked that, here’s a couple of my own recipes for seasonal veg. These two are part of my 10-minute-lunch series!
