Seasonal recipes for February
Here is the creative part, where you get to turn local ingredients into delicious meals.
Because it’s still winter and a warming soup will always go down well.
We don’t know why ingredients like sprouts and parsnips get such a bad rep – we love them for their textures, flavour and nutrition and this bake shows them both off at their finest.
Another traybake because February is already hard enough. When it’s already dark after work, ten minutes of chopping is all you need to commit in order to have this tasty dinner.
Don’t know what to expect with this recipe? Well buckle in for a world of rich and hearty pasta – you’re welcome.
This simple weeknight pasta is sweet, cosy, and basically comfort food at its finest. What’s more, is that it comes together in under thirty minutes!
All that’s left to do now is pick a recipe and get to your local market!
Let us know what ingredient you’re most looking forward to this month in the comments.
