For all your cooking inspiration: the tastiest seasonal vegetables of March

Must Try

Anew month, a new range of vegetables in season. Seasonal vegetables are a great way to unite your heart for cooking and nature in the kitchen. With a lot of culinary love we have created a calendar with seasonal vegetables. This time: the seasonal vegetables of March.

Benefits of cooking with seasonal vegetables

Cooking with seasonal vegetables is always a good idea. First, seasonal vegetables are simply  tastier than vegetables that are not grown in season. This is because the vegetables have been grown in optimal conditions and because they have to travel a lot less to our plate.

Second, seasonal vegetables are a  sustainable choice . For example, if you want to grow strawberries in winter, you will have to imitate tropical conditions that cost a lot of (unnecessary) heat energy.

Finally, seasonal vegetables are a lot  cheaper because of the limited energy needed to grow them.

Seasonal vegetables in March

So reason enough. We have listed the seasonal vegetables of March for you.

Endive

Granted, endive may not have the sexiest image, but secretly nothing beats a good old stew with endive. We can recommend this one with  black pudding, bacon and apple  , just like this one with  cod and mustard sauce .

Not much of a stew lover? No worries, you can do a lot more with endive. Try one of these delicious  endive recipes .

beets

Beets: you like it or you don’t But by incorporating them into this  crisp beetroot tortilla  or using them as  carpaccio for orange and goat cheese mousse,  it’s easy to fall in love with this vegetable for good. Know how to prepare them? This is how you cook beets  like a master.

Kale

The green superfood we can’t get enough of. This seasonal vegetable has long been used not only for the traditional ‘ kale with sausage’, but is also very welcome in this healthy  soup with spinach and kale , on this  tortilla with feta  and – holymoly – in this variant of mac ‘n cheese . Which one are you trying out first tonight?

mushrooms

There are so many options with mushrooms that it is difficult to choose what you want. Think of this mushroom soup with bread , this  vegetarian pie with sweet potato and mushrooms , this  stew with pork belly and bacon cubes  or this  bulgur with corn, mushrooms and country fowl .

Paprika

We <3 bell peppers, especially when the vegetables are in season. Our favorite recipes? Caprese of pointed peppers with Burrata ,  quick bell pepper soup with mascarpone and oregano  and  salad with roasted bell pepper, capers and Parmesan . Also tasty: Thai roasted peppers with coriander seed and lime

Caprese of pointed peppers

bok choy

Is pak choi (still) unknown to you? Here  you can read what you can do with it. We also like this  grilled bok choy salad with mushrooms  or this  chicken in coconut jacket with baby bok choy .

leeks

We have known for some time that leeks do not have to be old-fashioned. You can  boil  or  blanch leeks (recommended!), whatever you want. Delicious in this invigorating  leek soup of fennel, apple and walnuts  or in this  creamy spaghetti with leek and mushrooms .

Radish

Eat them raw as a snack or go wild with  these surprising warm preparations of radishes . Radishes are top vegetables that taste great in fresh salads (such as this  lamb’s lettuce with goat cheese and radish ), in  Japanese sushi bowls  or on a  baked (sweet) potato . Yummyrrrr!

Spinach

We can no longer do without this Popeye vegetable at Culy. Recently we used spinach in this  green shakshuka  and in this  casserole with sweet potato, spinach and minced meat.  Did you know that you can also make  Japanese chips with it? And for lovers of Indian cuisine, this saag paneer is  a  must-try.  We can go on like this for a while, but do experiment yourself with this healthy leafy vegetable.

Onions

Did you know that you can make a delicious side dish by  roasting onions on the barbecue ? (No, it’s never too early to dust off your grill). And that sweet onion jam  is really very tasty and seems to work against heartbreak? If we couldn’t already surprise you with this, try this  amazing cheese-onion bread , because this taste explosion will make everyone fall from their seat.

chicory

Finally, chicory shows off nicely in this list of seasonal vegetables. This is how you prepare chicory  best (so tasty that even children love it!) as a side dish, but you can also use it in a  chicory dish with ham and homemade cheese sauce  or  chicory soup with grilled scallops  .

Et voilà , that way you immediately have enough inspiration for the month of March.
