Spring Dinner Ideas: Spring Table

Spring has finally arrived; what better time to refresh your weekly meals?

As lighter evenings and longer days approach, you may be thinking about swapping out the hearty meat stews for seasonal spring greens.

Here, we’re sharing our 5 favourite spring dinner ideas for you to try at home:

Spring Dinner Ideas: Slow-Roasted Lamb

Lamb is a popular ingredient in spring. There are so many delicious ways to prepare and cook your lamb, but we think this roast lamb shoulder recipe is perfect for a spring Sunday dinner.

Slow-roasted and tender, it’s sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Why not invite friends over for a spring feast? Weather permitting, you may even be able to dine al fresco.

One-Pot Salmon and Asparagus

Asparagus is a delicious, seasonal vegetable. You can enjoy it in a variety of ways, such as with steamed salmon, new potatoes and poached egg, or baked in a chicken pie.

It’s versatile and packed full of nutrients, with an earthy, slightly bitter taste that adds plenty of depth.

This one-pot salmon dish is one of our favourite asparagus spring dinner ideas to add to your weekly meal plan.

Spring Dinner Ideas: Courgette and Broccoli Quiche

Served hot and fresh, or left to cool and eaten the next day at a picnic, this easy, delicious quiche is the perfect addition to your spring dinners.

This recipe uses courgette and broccoli, but you can experiment with a variety of vegetables each week. Why not try using kale, peppers or mushrooms to help keep your spring dinner ideas fresh and exciting?

Spring Dinner Ideas: Incorporate Wild Garlic into Your Dishes

Have you ever been foraging? Why not take advantage of the spring sunshine and head out on a walk to see what you can find?

Wild garlic is rife in the woodlands during the spring and makes a delicious addition to many different meals.

You can use it in a salad, soup or even a stir fry. We particularly like this wild garlic, mint and tarragon chicken recipe.
