In-season food to eat this March

It might be snowing outside but spring is just around the corner! Get in the spirit by eating the freshest in-season foods around. To help you out we’ve found our fav fruits and veggies that are perfect to purchase in March. Plus, we’ve given you a recipe to incorporate the produce into. Dinner is sorted.

Spring Onions

These tasty green veggies are misused a lot. Do you use the green bit or the white bit? Truth be told, there isn’t a right way or a wrong way. Whatever part of the veggie you like the most you keep! Cook up some Slim Rice and fry chicken, spring onions, and chili. Once everything is cooked, combine and enjoy a quick and healthy dinner.

Mussels

Don’t be put off my cooking mussels; it’s quicker than you think. They are also very affordable. Look for clean and tightly closed shells that smell briny rarely than ‘fishy’. Cook up the mussels by heating olive oil in a large saucepan until very hot, add the mussels, cover with a lid and shake the pan over the heat until the mussel shells have opened. Then heat Slim Rice and combine with chili, garlic, tomatoes, parsley, and butter. Pair your freshly cooked mussels with your low-carb, low-fat risotto style rice. slim foods to eat in march

Sardines

Another fish on the list, sardines are an affordable and underrepresented fish in the cooking world. Don’t be afraid to get creative with ingredients you’ve never tried. You never know, you might love it! BBC Food has a great recipe for Tagliatelle with sweet-and-sour sardines (Tagliatelle alle sarde in saor). We recommend substituting tagliatelle for our low-carb Slim Fettuccine for a healthy and filling dinner in no time.

Celeriac

Celeriac is only in-season until the end of March so get your hands on this trusty veg before it goes! This root veg is very versatile and can be flavoured in a number of ways to suit any taste. Try adding celeriac into a soup for a hearty lunch. Serve with some crusty bread for dinner. If you want something low-carb, add our No Drain Slim Noodles for a heart-warming noodle soup.
