Officially, spring is just a little over 2 weeks away! I find it hard to believe since it’s still snowing here in the mid-Atlantic. But even with spring right around the corner, I know it will be awhile before we start to see all of those great spring vegetables that I’m pining for.
For now though, I just need a break from all of the heavy, stewed, creamy foods that constitute winter cooking. So I’m making a list of many of my favorite recipes using the best winter has to offer that aren’t quite so heavy, are totally nourishing, and make me appreciate winter cooking. Since this winter will never end.
Root Vegetable Soup (vegan, gluten free) by me
Creamy Potato, Leek and Gorgonzola Soup (gluten free) from the Pig and Quill
Carrot, Ginger, and Sweet Potato Soup from A Touch of Zest
Blood Orange and Fennel Salad from Taste, Love, and Nourish
Winter Salad Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms from Savory Simple
Lebanese Beef and Green Beans from Barefeet in the Kitchen
Garlic Smashed Potatoes from Damn Delicious
