Spring Vegetable Recipes

With each new season comes a slew of new recipes to accommodate the changing skies, and spring is particularly exciting because fresh fruits and veggies come back into play. It may not look like it now, but before you know it, that brown grass will be a vibrant green and gardens will be bursting with fresh produce. Assuming you aren’t running a farm in the vicinity of your dorm room, you can pick up a (reusable) bag chock full of the season’s finest at the grocery store. Wondering what to do with all these plants though? We’ve got a handful of the best spring vegetable recipes for you to try out.

You may be thinking to yourself: when is the last time I ate something green? If that is the case, this is the perfect time to make yourself a big ol’ salad. Salad etiquette suggests you throw a lot of lettuce in there, but with it being spring and all, it’d be a crime to forego fresh fruit too. This Very Berry Dream Salad knocks out two birds with one stone. 

Are you a salad nonconformist? Try this one instead: Heirloom Tomato, Avocado, and Burrata Salad on Garlic Toast. It’s kind of like an open-faced sandwich, but still kind of like a salad because there is bound to be vegetables flying everywhere. Delicious. 

Not ready to give up winter comfort food? Try this Roasted Vegetable Lasagna. It’s the best of both worlds; all of your favorite veggies but covered in obscene amounts of cheese and nestled between layers of warm pasta. 

Don’t think that because we are talking about vegetables there must be no dessert. Spring screams carrot cake, so why not step it up a bit and try this Coconut Carrot Cheesecake (say that five times fast).
