Spring Veggie Fever: 25 Mouthwatering Spring Vegetable Recipes
Spring is finally here, which means it's time to head out to your local farmer's market to pick out the fresh crop of spring vegetables. We've teamed up with our friends at Sunshine Sweet Corn to bring you our latest free eCookbook, Spring Veggie Fever: 25 Mouthwatering Spring Vegetable Recipes. These colorful recipes have it all from easy party dips to flavorful salads to mouthwatering sides and entrees. Be sure to check out what bright, spring vegetable recipes we've got in store!
Our free eCookbook features plenty of different veggies from radishes to green beans to tomatoes to onions and, of course, sweet corn! We love using Sunshine Sweet Corn in our recipes 'cause it's available much earlier in the season than corn grown throughout the country. Florida grows more sweet corn than in any other state, and with the state's temperate climate, sweet corn is available in April and May, so you don't have to wait 'til summer to start grilling! Sweet corn is such a versatile ingredient, and we love finding new, exciting ways to work it into our recipes. We bet you've got a few spring potlucks planned this season, which is why we've featured a few different spring vegetable recipes that are great for a crowd, including some flavor-bursting salsas and bring-along sides. If you're looking to settle in for a quiet night at home with friends and family, then we've got some starters and main dishes to tickle your taste buds. No matter what kind of dish you're looking to cook up, we're sure you'll find a spring vegetable recipe you'll love. Take a peek below at what you'll find in this free eCookbook.
Whether you're gearin' up for a lazy weekend in front of the TV or you're expecting company, it's always nice to have a few go-to starter recipes on hand. You'll be especially pleased with the selection of dips and salsas we have in store. Our Corn 'n' Black Bean Salsa (page 3) recipe is so colorful you'll want to put it front and center in your appetizer spread. With so many good-for-you veggies packed into one flavorful dish, you'll definitely need to make a double batch! While you're shopping for veggies, be sure to pick up a few extra ears of corn to prepare our Fresh Corn Dip (page 4). Fresh corn on the cob gives our recipes an extra special touch that you'll be buying ears by the dozen! If you're looking for an appetizer recipe but want something a little different from your usual dip or salsa, then you've gotta check out our Farmstand Quesadillas (page 5). The great thing about this easy vegetable recipe is that you can customize the filling however you please, so you're completely satisfied with the finished product.
Corn is a welcome addition to some of our lighter dishes as well in our Salads & Soups chapter. Whether you're looking for an appetizing dish to pair on the side of your main course or you're looking for a refreshing lunchtime dish, then you've come to the right place. Our Springtime Veggie Salad (page 6) is sprinkled with a variety of vibrantly flavored ingredients, including cherry tomatoes, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, and more. It's not your typical Caesar or chef salad—it's really gonna get the crowd talking! While our salads are perfect for warm days out in the sun, we know spring also has plenty of rainy days indoors. Our Egg Noodle Veggie Chowder (page 13) is perfect for those days when it's pouring rain, and you just want a blanket and a warm meal to get you feelin' nice 'n' cozy. The combination of cheese, veggies, and pasta will warm you up from the inside out, allowing you to feel rejuvenated and comforted.
When you hear the phrase "vegetable recipe," we bet your mind immediately turns to a tasty side dish, are we right? And with so many fantastic, easy vegetable recipes out there, we've gotta say, it was tough choosing our favorites. We've got a nice mix of recipes that'll surely please everyone at the dinner table, including our Southwestern Vegetable Medley (page 15). You'll love picking up the fresh veggies from the market, and we guarantee you won't have any trouble getting your family to clean their plates! If you're looking to add a little novelty to your mealtime spread, then our spring vegetable recipe for Fresh Corn Cakes (page 19) is right up your alley. Heat 'em up on a sizzlin' skillet and wait for the aromas to start wafting their way throughout your home. Warning: the neighbors might make their way over asking for a bite, so be sure to have a few extras on hand.
Start heatin' up the grill pan 'cause we've got some corn recipes that are ready to take center stage! Kabobs are one of the best kinds of recipes to make when you're expecting company. They're not quite as messy as a hot dog or hamburger, and they're easy to munch on while talking to friends and family. Our Veggie Skewers (page 24) are a nice option for vegetarians (or anyone, for that matter!). Alternating between corn on the cob, cherry tomatoes, peppers, and onions, this crispy-fresh entree is sure to be a hit throughout spring and summer. If you're looking for a change to your Friday pizza night, we've got a unique recipe that'll become the talk of the night with our Roasted Vegetable Pizza (page 26). Topped with all our favorite veggies and cheese, we've created a pizza with a rich blend of flavors that you'll feel good about eating! And if you're looking for a simple, 15-minute recipe to throw together during the week, then you'll have to check out our recipe for Rainbow Pasta Primavera (page 28). It's a dish that celebrates all the wonderfully fresh veggies available at the supermarket this time of year!
