While there are a million thing to love about the warming weather, we especially enjoy the fresh produce and local farmers markets! To help you with preparing all of that earthy, green, and nutritious produce, here are a few of our favorite spring recipes to try this month:

Baked Asparagus Frittata
By Cookie + Kate
An oldie but goodie, we love this recipe by Cookie + Kate to get our spring dose of asparagus! With only eleven ingredients (most of which you probably already have in the kitchen), this frittata is gluten-free and absolutely delicious. It can most likely be made plant-based as well with a few substitutes.
Prep Time: 10 Mins | Cook Time: 25 Mins | Yields: 6-9 Servings
Easy Springtime Crockpot Minestrone
How Sweet Eats
We love this recipe because (1) it cooks itself in the crockpot and (2) it gives us all our favorite spring veggies in the form of a warm dish, which is perfect for the Colorado spring blizzards! Using yummy greens like peas, spinach, and asparagus, this is a great weekend dinner that makes enough for weekday leftovers.
Prep Time: 10 Mins | Cook Time: 6+ Hours | Yields: 6-8 Servings
Grilled Mushroom Fajitas with Asparagus
It's finally time to clean off the grill! This recipe has us dreaming of summer! A vegan take on fajitas using local and in-season produce, Cadry's fajitas are a delicious and healthy spring dinner.
