May’s round of Simple and in Season has attracted some spanking gorgeous recipes from my food blogging friends, 13 in fact, so sit back, grab a nice glass of wine and plan what you’re going to rustle up out of this delicious selection!
First up there are two tasty entries from De Tout Coeur Limousin, who’s made a beautiful spring vegetable side dish that’s ready in just a few minutes. Get the recipe here
There’s also this beautiful griddled courgette, mozzarella and mint salad with a zingy pesto, lemon and yogurt dressing. A delicious vegetable side dish for spring time barbecues and picnics – here’s the recipe
Sarah from Maison Cupcake has rustled up this easy white bean hummus recipe which can be made with either butterbeans or cannelloni beans, canned beans or dried! Find the recipe here
These fab Asparagus Tarts with Pesto Surprise from Tin and Thyme use wild garlic pesto and goose eggs for a gloriously yellow result. They’re ideal picnic fare as they are portable and easy to pick up and eat with your hands.
I’m in love with this vividly green Asparagus and Swiss Chard Soup from Cathy at Planet Veggie. It’s a simple vegan soup that’s ready in less than 15 minutes.
Onions and Paper has been cooking from Sabrina Ghayour’s latest book, Sirocco and shares a few of the dishes including this Apple, Sumac, Red Onion and Pomegranate Salad. Find out how she got on here
Natural Kitchen Adventures was feeling inspired after a trip to Madrid and Barcelona and made this lush looking Sauteed Cuttlefish, Fava Beans and Asparagus.
These mini frittatas from Searching For Spice are filled with lightly spiced mushrooms, asparagus and goats cheese. The lack of crust and healthy filling makes them perfect for a picnic.
I’m very tempted by this Banana and Coconut No Churn Ice Cream from The Baking Explorer. This ice cream is simply made with bananas, coconut, some condensed milk and Lotus biscuits.
Let’s hear it for the mini dessert! These individual Berry Cheesecakes from Family Friends Food are a huge time saver as there’s no need to even crush the biscuits for the base or spend time fannying about slicing them into portions. I think you’ll agree that they look super cute!
Sally over at My Custard Pie has been to the farmer’s market and bought cherry tomatoes and fragrant peppers to make this stunning homemade Romesco sauce.
I’m definitely going to be giving this a try. Find out how you can make it too here
Foodie Quine has used orzo instead of rice to make her Orzo Risotto with Mint and British Asparagus. I love anything that saves on time so I think this is a wonderful way to make the most of asparagus without being a slave to the stove.
And finally, this Goose Egg Frittata with Spiralised Roasted Veg from the Gluten Free Alchemist looks magnificent. Goose eggs have a higher yolk to white ratio than hen eggs, which makes for a rich, yellow, nutritious Frittata. Yum!
Join in with Simple and in Season for June!
Simple and in Season is a monthly food blogging event where you are invited to link up any of your seasonal recipe posts – anywhere in the world! Join a thriving community of home cooks who love to share their seasonal creations.
Each month, there will be a round-up of all the entries.
- All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, add a link to this post mentioning Simple and in Season and linking to www.feedingboys.co.uk and then manually add the link to your post in the box on each month’s launch page (click the badge on my Blog sidebar to find the current host)
- The linky will close on the 30th and a round up post featuring all the recipes entered will be posted at the beginning of each new month.
- You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it.
- Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish.
- Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules).
- The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere, and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.
- By entering your link, you are giving me permission to add your photograph to the round-up. I will link back directly to your post when I include you.
- If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
- If you are on Twitter or Instagram, tweet your link/photo adding the hashtag #simpleandinseason or add me @cookingkt and I will re-tweet it.
