Recipes to celebrate spring

As new shoots start to creep through, it’s time to swap those hearty root vegetables for spring ingredients –  lighter, crisper and – of course – delicious.

Try one of our springtime recipes made with spring onions, purple sprouting broccoli, new potatoes, elderflowers and many more.

Late spring is British asparagus’s time to shine. Grab some spears and try an asparagus recipe.
