Things to Eat in May
...boiled cauliflower, roasted cauliflower, stir-fried cauliflower, kale in miso soup, crispy oven-baked kale, parsnip chips, roast parsnip, parsnip soup, parsnip mashed potatoes...
I am ready and excited for May to bring me all sorts of vegetabley goodness. Our garden is bursting with herbs plus two scrawny asparagus that popped up over night.
Here is what's in store for May, so start your menu planning.
Asparagus, Carrots, Mushrooms, Onions, Radishes, Rutabaga, Spinach
Asparagus, Cauliflower, Curly Lettuce, more rhubarb!, Spinach
If you'd like to keep up to date with what's in season, check out Eat the Seasons, a fabulous website that tells you what vegetables, fruits, fish and meat* are in season, week by week. They have information for the UK/Ireland AND North America. Fantastic.
*Yes, meat and fish are available according to the season. During past few train rides across the Devon countryside, I have smiled at the little lambs hopping behind their mamas. Spring lamb, here I come (gotta wait a little longer though).
