Spring is here, and along with it a plethora of fresh produce. After a winter of root vegetables and soups, I always look forward to enjoying some vegan recipes that are a little lighter, a little cooler, a little crisper. So I turn to recipes like these nine plant-based dishes to bring on the freshness of spring.
I tend to think of asparagus as the quintessential spring vegetable, but a quick look at a handy seasonal produce guide showed me that there are a lot more fresh vegetables coming into season, depending on what part of the United States you live in. For instance, while asparagus, blueberries, and 24 other fruits and vegetables are available in the South, they’re not quite in season yet in other parts of the country. But kale, beets, salad greens, cauliflower, and carrots seem to be plentiful just about everywhere in the US this time of year.
So in coming up with some of my favorite FatFree Vegan recipes to recommend to you this month, I tried to include a little something for everyone, no matter what area of the country you live in. Lettuces and greens seem to be available everywhere, so I’m recommending one of my favorite salad dressings to go with them. Also, with Mothers Day coming up soon, I’ve included some blueberry recipes that any mother would enjoy for breakfast or dessert.
