Dandelion Salad

You probably grew up simply thinking of dandelions as weeds. That should change, starting now. Dandelions are a perfect salad green that you can harvest straight from your yard. Just make sure you and your neighbors don’t use any strong pesticides before you commit to eating them.

Tangy Rhubarb Salsa

Wondering what to do with all this rhubarb? Pie and jam are not your only options. This rhubarb salsa has enough kick to light up any meal. Though some people would serve it with chips, I actually like to serve it as a garnish on some fried chili tofu for that Caribbean feel.

Simple Steamed Asparagus

Love it or hate it, spring is when asparagus comes back into our lives. This vegetable has such a strong and unique flavor, it almost seems a shame to cover it with anything. So why bother? This simple steam treatment with a little bit of butter really makes this vegetable shine.

Asparagus and Spring Onion Tart

Happy St. Patrick’s day! This recipe features early spring vegetables and a nice, eggy body to make sure you still get that protein hit you aren’t getting from corned beef. When buying your green onions, make sure their color is bright and there is no slime in the packaging. With a recipe meant to make the vegetables shine, sub-par ingredients are never alright.
