Spring has officially sprung—and it’s about damn time. Although we’re still waiting for the weather to warm up to our liking, we’re psyched for sunnier meals ahead that put seasonal produce in the spotlight. Think asparagus, peas, radishes, spinach and mushrooms, but don’t limit yourself to those. To get you in the spirit, here are 30 dinners to whip up every night in April, from goat cheese pasta with spinach and artichokes to lemon butter veggies and sausage.
30 Spring Dinners to Make Every Night in April
Cooking pasta in the pressure cooker is a game-changer. Drop the dry noodles in with the aromatics for flavor, then quick-release the pressure once they’re cooked, so they stay al dente.
Pro tip: Make the three-ingredient pickled radishes, soy-ginger dressing and relish in advance, so all you have to do at meal time is assemble and serve. You can thank us later.
