What to Eat in Spring!

Tracy Benjamin of Shutterbean shares her favorite recipes if you're looking for What to Eat in Spring!

Now that the weather is changing here in the Bay Area, I’ve had to put away some of my winter clothes (yay!). My body is also craving change. It’s the time of year where I start ditching heavy foods for lighter fare. But first, I have to remind myself what is in season during Spring so I can exploit all the fresh produce at my farmer’s market!

Let’s dip into the Shutterbean archives and figure out What to Eat in Spring!

Shortbread Strawberry Crumble

One of the simplest recipes! We’re starting to see strawberries pop up here in California and I am so excited!

Roasted Strawberries

Your house will smell amazing.

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

This jam is not cooked! It’s made in a blender and it’s so delicious.

Ricotta Pancakes with Roasted Strawberries

Weekends go well when pancakes are involved! These ones are light & fluffy.

Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups

Bust out your blender and make some fruit roll-ups. Be a kid again!

Rhubarb Coffee Cake

This is the time of year when rhubarb SHINES. This is a good coffee cake to put in your arsenal.

Spicy Mango Wraps

I didn’t realize it was mango season! YAY! These wraps are bonkers. You’re going to love the sauce.

Mango Lassi Popsicles

Cooper loves these guys. I’ll have to make a batch soon!

This is a salad to have in your back pocket. That sugared lime zest will make you want to put it on EVERYTHING.

Shaved Asparagus Prosciutto Pizza

ALLLLL the good things on one pizza.

Creamy Asparagus + Bacon Soup

If you have asparagus to use up, make soup!

Sweet Peas Shells & Alfredo

These shells are a creamy dream.

Bacon Pesto Potato Hash (with Peas!)

Breakfast lunch or dinner it’s allllll right with me.

Bacon Pea Pizza with mint

The mint and the squeeze of lemon -whoa nelly! YUM.

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Pizza

Imagine artichoke dip….ON A PIZZA

Cream of Artichoke Soup

Husband’s favorite soup. Next time I’m gonna hollow out a bread bowl and serve it in one!

Lime Ginger Broccoli Salad

Hello, flavor explosion. This dressing is BRIGHT!  The almonds are a nice touch too!

Broccoli Cheddar Rolls

Hello, comfort food.

Broccoli Pesto Polenta

Another comfort food! And that egg!

Roasted Broccolini with Lemon Tahini Sauce

Grilled Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers

It’s time to start thinking about grilling!!! Pineapples are amazing grilled.

Roasted Pineapple with Yogurt & Pistachios

Pineapples are also great ROASTED with yogurt and pistachios too.

I hope this helps inspire you to get in your kitchen and make new things this Spring!

While you’re at it, maybe Spring Clean your kitchen?

    Nice compilation, Tracy! I’m so excited that it’s time for light, fresh food and bright colors again. <3

    Spring arrives later here in Ontario, Canada, but I’m keeping these in mind for when we start getting spring produce. Can’t wait to try the rhubarb coffee cake!

  • Megan

    My gosh, girl — every last thing looks amazing to me right now!!! I, too, crave fresh spring-y foods…and I really crave having someone to prepare it for me. 😉 But second best will be making some of them myself.

    This post has me SO EXCITED for spring time food. I love Beef Stew as much as the next gal but MAN I’m excited to get some mangos and asparagus in my body.
