With the lighter mornings and what seems like - dare we say it - warmer evenings, we'd like to think that spring is on its way.
We’ve rounded up some tasty meals which are simple to cook but don't skimp on flavour
So this March shake off the winter chill with some of our bright and zesty dishes which you and all the family will love.
From quick and easy chicken dinners to asparagus topped tarts, we’ve rounded up some tasty meals which are simple to cook but don't skimp on flavour.
Mediterranean leftover vegetable frittata
Not only is this one-pan wonder simple and tasty, but you can use any leftover veg you have in the fridge to bulk it out - think broccoli, spinach, carrot, sweetcorn, leek - whatever you like! So if you haven’t managed to pop to the shops in the midst of your busy schedule, don’t fret as you can adapt the ingredients to suit you.
Speedy squash and spinach curry
Ultra-quick if you need to eat now, but a fast make-ahead dish, too. The spicy flavours develop so it tastes even better the next day. You can serve this with a naan bread, rice or even cauliflower rice if you're feeling adventurous.
Speedy chicken and leek casserole
Casseroles don’t have to be heavy on the stomach! This light chicken and leek concoction is ready in 30 minutes and there's bound to be leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Perfect!
Lemon and thyme roast chicken
Ah, a simple, classic roast with a citrus twist is perfect for spring and ideal for feeding hungry tummies. Serve with some delicious spring new potatoes and veggies.
Pepper and chorizo salad
With just three method steps, you’ll have a tasty dish on the table in 15 minutes. We’ve paired this with chorizo but if you had any leftover meat you could also add that in. Or if you’ve got any vegetarians in your family, forget the chorizo and you could add another meat substitute like Quorn or tofu.
Chicken and cherry tray bake
Cherries combine brilliantly with Chinese-inspired flavours in this easy-to-make and big on taste dish. The perfect alternative to a classic roast dinner.
Asparagus and beetroot tarts
Spring is the season for these crisp and vibrant, versatile green spears and they look sunshine fresh in any dish! If you're not a fan of beetroot, butternut squash makes a great alternative and works just as well with asparagus.
Goat’s cheese, onion and red peppers give this omelette a true taste of the Med. Crack open some eggs, add some seasoning and get creating!
