Spring is in the air! Now that it’s finally starting to warm up, your body is craving some fresh and light meals that will keep it feeling alert and satisfied. Time to push the carbs aside and make room for some delicious, locally-grown vegetarian meals that will leave you feeling light and fresh all spring. Let’s take a look at some of the most delectable vegetarian recipes that you can make with locally-grown, organic vegetables and herbs.
Breakfast burritos are an especially great meal because they can be made ahead of time, stored in the refrigerator, and eaten while on-the-go during your morning rush. The next time you’re at the grocery store, remember that locally-grown, organic veggies and herbs will make take your taste buds to the next level. To make the perfect veggie breakfast burrito, all you need are whole grain tortillas, scrambled eggs, beans of your choosing, cilantro, hot sauce, salsa, and cheddar cheese. Put a bit of each ingredient in the center of the tortillas, and carefully roll them up. Now you have a healthy, vegetarian breakfast ready-to-go for the whole week!
Salads are an amazing way to get your daily recommended dose of veggies, but, let’s be honest, even salads can get stale. Liven up your taste buds this spring with some deliciously nutritious lunch ideas. Think outside the salad bowl with colorful veggie lettuce wraps. You have a lot of leeway here in terms of choosing whatever vegetables you’d like to fill your wrap with, but you do need one thing: delicious, buttery Bibb lettuce. Grab some organic Bibb lettuce at your local market, and pull off a few leaves to fill them with hummus, crisp veggies (snap peas, cabbage, shredded carrots, etc.), and some of your favorite dressing. Wrap it all up, and you’ve got a delicious veggie lunch!
Ready for dinner? These veggie-based dinner ideas are so tasty, you’ll be craving them all year long. When it comes to dinner, consider a Thai red curry with Maryland fish peppers and onions. Served over rice, this dinner is a hot entree that all spice-lovers will enjoy. If you’re not into spice, pesto pizza made with fresh arugula and parmesan cheese is definitely up your alley. While at the store, look for local basil and arugula. These two flavors need to be extremely fresh to maximize potential flavor. A light drizzle of olive oil over your crust, and all these flavors come together beautifully in the spring evenings.
