5 Fresh Spring Dishes


While Alberta weather can be unpredictable, it’s safe to say that most of the cold months are behind us! It’s the perfect time to add some fresh spring recipes to your meal rotation.
We’ve rounded up five fun spring recipes, with the spotlight on fresh fruits and veggies.

Cantaloupe Bowls

Cantaloupe bowls can pack up to three servings of fruit into one delicious meal! Plus, there are so many options. You can scoop out the middle and fill it with greek yogurt or cottage cheese, make a smoothie bowl or grab a cookie cutter and make this adorable version of the recipe, which kids will be sure to love.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Oven-roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon, pecans, and maple syrup are a version of Brussels sprouts that will convert even the fussiest eaters.

Tahini-Roasted Broccoli

To make this super-healthy and delicious dish, all you need are a few ingredients, and they only take about ten minutes to bake--some reviewers also suggest charring the broccoli with garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil first and adding the lemon and tahini afterward. Broccoli is a great source of calcium, iron, and phosphorus, while tahini has healthy fats and is rich in antioxidants.

Easy Tomato and Potato Bake

This recipe is super simple to make--one of our favourite versions features oregano, with the potatoes sliced thin and just the right amount of crispness. Potatoes are a classic side, but combined with fresh cherry tomatoes pairs super well with your favourite spring veggies.

Super Food Salads

If you’re too busy for meal prep, super delicious options from Inspired Go are a great option. From classics like the Char Ceasar and Burrito Bowl to more eclectic options like their delicious Cali Roll salad, you’ve got plenty of tasty options to choose from.

Plus, you’ll be supporting a local business that grows their greens in a sustainable way, 365 days a year!
