April seasonal recipes

This time of year includes a bumper of seasonal treats, with a continued supply of leafy veg such as watercress, spinach and purple sprouting broccoli alongside fresh bursts of green veg, bracing herbs and light salads. With wondrous prawns also a star of the season, you’ll find more than enough reasons to celebrate this gorgeous time of year.
