Green Four Veg Risotto with Pesto
This bowl of green goodness is packed with vibrant veggies, and is one of our all-time favourite spring recipes. If you’ve got the time, why not try making your pesto from scratch? Simply blitz up basil, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, parmesan and a pinch of salt to create your own.

Abundant with springtime flavours, this salad packs in a generous 5 superfoods – meaning it’s not only delicious, but healthy, too!
Chia Chickpea and Spinach Fritters with Feta and Chilli Jam
These fritters are so easy, we’d have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if we could! It’s one of our favourite spring recipes, best enjoyed on the terrace in the sunshine. Take our advice: make a note of the chilli jam recipe, as we’re sure you’ll want to make it again and again!
Lemon Garlic Butter Prawns with Quinoa and Asparagus
Asparagus is a classic springtime ingredient, and it’s the perfect pairing for our lemon garlic prawns. Our favourite part is that this healthy recipe comes in at under 500 calories per serving!
Spiced Lamb with Moutabal and Chickpeas
With Easter coming up, lamb typically features in a number of spring recipes. Here in the UAE, it’s also a popular ingredient throughout Ramadan. We’re loving this vibrant Middle Eastern dish, which is the perfect dish for this time of year.
