10 Spring Vegetables And What To Make With Them

February 27, 2024 | Source: Delish | by Gabby Romero

Time to put your winter coats away: spring is officially here! The sun is out, flowers are blooming, and some of our favorite vegetables are ready for harvest.

When shopping at supermarkets, you can pretty much find every ingredient you want any time of the year. However, produce that’s out of season is typically sourced from far away places with warmer weather. While that’s not inherently a bad thing, there’s a case to be made for in-season, locally sourced produce.

Local, seasonal produce is usually cheaper since it’s more abundant and didn’t have to travel far. It’s also more flavorful, because food transported from other countries is often picked before it’s ripe to avoid spoilage in transit.

And, most importantly, eating in-season vegetables is the best way to celebrate spring! Something about eating pasta primavera in the fall feels a little wrong. But enjoying it once the spring flowers start to bloom is just so right.
