Dishing Up the Dirt

Favorite Spring Recipes

May 17, 2018

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year to sit down and eat dinner at the farm. The fresh flavors of the season are off the hook and with new produce springing up daily, mealtime has been a complete joy. We’re harvesting so many wonderful vegetables that I’ve been longing for all winter long and it’s been awesome to finally sink my teeth into the recipes that I’ve missed for what feels like far too long. This year, sitting down to dinner has been made even better because we have two field crew members that we get to dine with multiple times a week and it just makes the food taste better when it’s enjoyed with great company (and all of our collaborative blood and sweat poured into the food).  We’ve been cooking up quite a few recipes from the DUTD archives so I thought it would be fun to share our favorites so far this season.  I hope you all enjoy!
