Nutrient Dense: Roasted Beet & Carrot Lentil Salad with Feta, Yogurt & Dill

Bushel Vegetables: Carrots, beets, green garlic

“Warm lentils and roasted spring vegetables get a tangy boost from herbaceous yogurt sauce, briny feta, and crunchy almonds in this protein-rich roasted beet & carrot lentil salad.”

Supremely Spring: Spring Garlic Fried Eggs

Bushel Vegetables: Green garlic, green onions

“Spring garlic is sort of a cross between a big scallion and a regular bulb of garlic. It’s small, delicate, and absolutely delicious. Eggs are the first thing that pop into my head when thinking about cooking anything at all, and I wanted to show off the pretty purple and green stalks”

Warm Stew: Vegan Taco Collard Wraps

Bushel Vegetables: Collards, mushrooms, avocado

“These hold up well in the fridge for lunches because the collard greens are sturdy. Read through the entire recipe before proceeding. I tried to list the steps in the most logical way because there’s a bit of soaking involved, so the ingredient list skips around a little. Sub in coconut aminos for soy or tamari to make this Whole 30 friendly.”

Easy Slaw: Collard Green Coleslaw

Bushel Vegetables: collards, carrots

“The hot dressing poured over this salad slightly wilts the greens without cooking them. Chilling the salad lets the flavors develop. Serve as a side dish, or use instead of lettuce to top vegetarian barbecue. Other greens to try in this recipe: Swiss chard, beet greens, or flat-leafed kale.”
