What does the perfect spring recipe taste like to you? Share yours on our website and you could win big with our giveaway!
Spring is finally here, with tender greens and tart rhubarb...and we need YOU to help us get more springtime recipes on our website! Bonus: this giveaway’s the perfect chance to get your kitchen skills warmed up for our annual Hands-On Cook-Off which will be launching later this month on April 16th.
Today, we’re sharing some of our favourite meal ideas for spring - and if you share your favourite recipe on our site, you could win a $200 Visa gift card as a prize. More details at the end of this post!
To our families, springtime tastes like the tang and crunch of young greens, lemon, and rhubarb. Here are some family-friendly spring salads that will get everyone going for green:
- Fresh pea salad
- Kale chips
- Salad people
- Orange, beets and fennel salad
- Kuku omelet (aka a Persian Herb Omelette)
Asparagus is at its most fresh and tender in the spring—try peeling and steaming it for little ones who are new to it (don’t forget to let them eat it the proper and traditional way—with their fingers!) For meals that let asparagus shine, this simple seaside breakfast is a winner, and this asparagus pea pasta pairs the bright greens with a creamy, mild sauce. We also love this kale pesto pasta, along with these lemony recipe ideas that bring out the freshness of spring flavours.
Rhubarb is another abundant and classic spring ingredient—young bakers will love rhubarb crunch squares or jewel cake. For more experienced kid cooks, try fruit sorbet with rhubarb sauce and apple chips as a weekend cooking project—or this family recipe for strawberry-raspberry-rhubarb pie.
And if your kids aren’t totally warmed up to the idea of eating greens yet? Some kids are much more curious to try green veggies when they grow them themselves, and luckily, that’s easy to do without a garden—we’ve got tutorials for you on how to start growing microgreens, as well as an easy indoor kitchen garden. For spring recipe and activity ideas from around the world, check out our round-up.
Now it’s your turn: what’s your favourite spring recipe? Share it on our website along with a photo (it’s easy with our online form) and you’ll be entered in our draw to win a $200 Visa gift card (hey, that’s a lot of green!). This contest ends Thursday, April 12th at 5 pm, and there's a limit of one entry per person per day. See our Rules and Regulations for other details. We can’t wait to see and try your recipes! And remember: after this giveaway ends, the Hands-on Cook-off is launching April 16th—so you’ve got plenty of chances to discover just how rewarding it is to cook with your family!
