fingerling potato salad

The markets are in a frenzy as spring produce makes it’s long-awaited debut. Last week, we highlighted asparagus. And this week, shall we continue? From green peas to artichokes and blood oranges, let’s make it a Meatless Monday… or season!

Though you may have bad memories attached to peas (perhaps from a can or frozen on a bum knee), give real fresh green peas a chance! Try this Green Peas Stir Fry with Chaat Masala from eCurry for a simple preparation that pairs the natural sweetness of peas with a decided kick of delicious Indian spices. 

Dress us your peas a little fancier with this recipe from Feasting at Home for Fingerling Potatoes with Peas, Tarragon and Mustard Seed. We don’t have to tell you that these babies will melt in your mouth. 

“Big beautiful springtime artichokes are here.” Gourmande in The Kitchen is celebrating with this quintessential recipe for Oven Braised Artichokes with Garic and Thyme. Discover how to cook an artichoke right!

Top off any seasonal meal with this Blood Orange Granita with Ginger and Orange Mint recipe. As they say at eCurry, “Crunchy, frosty, vibrant with juicy fresh fruits, it is as much of an adult’s summer dream as that of a child.” And we couldn’t agree more.
