22. Make a dish using all seasonal produce.
Don't be confused my Northern Hemisphere buddies, is is SPRING down south! And when I think spring, I think ASPARAGUS!
Lemony Green Veggie Pasta from But I Could Never Go Vegan seemed like just the perfect dish to celebrate spring, and included my beloved asparagus. As well as asparagus, it includes snap peas, leek, baby spinach and pea shoots. Sadly I had to sub snow peas for snap peas, as I made this dish at the start of September (I have a super busy end of September, so I did lots of the cooking for MoFo in the early half of the month) and snap peas were not quite available then. Of course they are everywhere now. Oh well. This dish gave me three serves, and has a bright lemony and Dijon sauce that coats the greens and the pasta (I used penne).
My favourite way to eat asparagus is spritzed with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted. So easy and delicious!
What is your favourite springtime fruit or vegetable?
