Warmer weather and spring veggies have me craving new, fresh recipes. Here are 6 I’m excited to try this season!
1. One Pot Vegetable Penne Pasta – Love & Lemons
There is nothing I love more than one pot pasta recipes. They’re easy and yummy. This one is filled with tomatoes, pepper, zucchini and more. In a few months, we can make this right out of the garden, but for now the grocery store will do. I’m going to make this my lunch meal prep for the week.
Update: This recipe worked great for a whole week worth of lunches! I used 2 small zucchini, a pint of cherry tomatoes and 16 ounces of whole wheat pasta with 5 1/2 cups of water. Next time, I’ll add even more spices to really jazz things up.
2. Blackened Fish Tacos with Creamy Avocado Sauce – FoodieCrush
At this time last year, my roommates and I were spring break-ing in Florida, eating fish tacos with mixed drinks at beachfront restaurants. This year, not so much. But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy fish tacos at home!
3. Slow Cooker Thai Curry Chicken – Lexi’s Clean Kitchen
I’m not going to put away the slow cooker just because it’s getting warmer. I’m excited to try this recipe! I love when I can make rice and add whatever has been cooking all day with no effort on my part to make a meal.
4. Moroccan Chickpea Quinoa Power Salad – Little Spice Jar
This is a great side dish or a main meal. When I made it, I used less scallions and didn’t include dates. The flavors had a chance to blend overnight and it was even better as leftovers.
5. Glowing Green “Pasta” Primavera – Oh She Glows
Everything on Oh She Glows is delicious and unlike some vegan recipes, you can’t tell it’s vegan. I always love the sauces Angela creates and this sun-dried tomato basil-hemp pesto looks amazing.
6. Southwestern Veggie Wraps – Oh My Veggies
I love wraps, I love sweet potatos and I love black beans. These wraps look like an easy dinner with enough flavor and filling to make up for the meatless-ness.
