Sweet VegTable March Seasonal Recipes

Here in the Colorado mountains, we expect snow until Mother’s Day! So this March, we’ll keep the fireplace going, flannel jammies on, and tuck into these delicious winter dishes to warm the soul.

Bold Brussels Sprouts

Think brussels are over-boiled or over-hyped? No way, man! All you need is a hot oven, a roasting pan, halved brussels and a little salt & olive oil. Roast until the outer edges are nice and crispy. Epic crunch and flavor depth. My 9-year-old snatches them off the hot pan before I’ve even set it down! Want even more flavor? These 4 food bloggers can raise your brussels sprouts game to restaurant quality!

Lively Lemons

A squeeze of lemon is perfect when you want flavors to POP. I love roasting lemons with other veggies. Aaaand, let’s be honest, I’ll never pass up an iced lemon cake, either! But have you tried lemon in granola? Rice? Asparagus pasta? Charring it for gin & tonic? Check out these 4 epic recipes that show off what a simple lemon can do!

Lovely Leeks

Stop walking past those oversized green onions! They may look huge, but leeks are a mild, sweet and delicate type of onion. Try slicing and sautéing the white part of leeks as a substitute for onions. You’ve instantly elevated your dish to new heights. Ready for more? These 4 talented cooks have transformed leeks into your new favorite ingredient!

Creative Cauliflower

Cauliflower shines when you give it some LOVE… just like people! My favorite is roasty-toasty cauli in a hot oven, but that’s just the beginning. Cauliflower loves to be marinated, sauced and seasoned. It soaks up flavors and is a chameleon ingredient. Wait til you see the recipes these 4 creative food bloggers have created with cauliflower!
