Fresh Takes on Spring Flavors
Take a break from all that traditional spring cleaning and spend some time with your recipe file. After all, even recipes – and your taste buds – can benefit from a little sprucing up from time to time. Pitch those recipes you’ll never get around to making, keep your old standbys and add a few that will expand your repertoire, excite your taste buds and even offer additional health benefits.
Old Standby: Macaroni and Cheese with Ham and Peas
Fresh Take: Green Pea Soup with Fresh Mint
Green soup that’s good for your heart! Peas are loaded with cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, and the onions, garlic, carrots and celery all contain powerful disease-fighting nutrients. Best of all, this soup calls for frozen green peas, which are just as nutrient-rich as fresh (and less work for you!) since frozen vegetables are packed immediately after harvesting.
