Pasta Primavera

This dish of pasta Primavera just says spring! Al dente pasta, in this case gluten-free, is combined with loads of fresh arugula and spinach, chives, asparagus, peas, fresh herbs and Parmesan. Get the recipe for Pasta Primavera.

Cold Soba Soup With Tofu, Watercress & Radishes

Use the best vegetable stock you can for this cold soup, featuring buckwheat soba noodles, fresh watercress, daikon radish and peas. The tofu ads protein, and extra flavor comes from soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar and fresh ginger. Pass the Sriracha. Get the recipe for Cold Soba Soup With Tofu, Watercress & Radishes.

Gluten-Free Rhubarb Upside Down Cake

This homespun cake is easy to make, and while it looks dramatic, we show you the techniques needed so that your cake will look as delectable as the photo. You end up with a tender gluten-free cake beneath a sweet tart rhubarb topping that will thrill family and friends. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Upside Down Cake.

Rhubarb Crumble Ice Cream

Sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream is layered with a sweet/tart rhubarb ribbon, along with crunchy crisp bits for an ice cream experience unlike any other. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Crumble Ice Cream.

Rhubarb Cheesecake Tart

This tart is made from a few different components. The crust is simple, rich, and buttery, topped with an ultra-creamy lactose-free vanilla cheesecake layer. Next comes a layer of sweet/tart rhubarb with a hint of lemon zest and the whole shebang is crowned with nutty brown sugar, browned-butter streusel. GETTING HUNGRY? Let’s bake together! Get the recipe for Rhubarb Cheesecake Tart.

Rhubarb Pie With Lattice Crust

If there is one pie that says spring to us it is rhubarb pie. We like it with a lattice crust so that we can see the gorgeous pink and red colors peeking through. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Pie With Lattice Crust.

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce

We bet the idea of rhubarb barbecue sauce sound surprising to you, but we promise, once you try it, you’ll say, “Where has this been all my life”? The sweet tart nature of rhubarb works wonderfully in a barbecue sauce. We particularly like this sauce with pork and poultry. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce.

Spiced Rhubarb Chutney

A chutney is a sweet tart condiment that often has a lot of texture, as this one does. Garlic-infused oil is combined with scallions, rhubarb, sugar, apple cider vinegar, candied ginger, as well as fresh ginger, cumin, and allspice along with raisins and chopped walnuts for a sophisticated condiment that you are going to want to dollop on everything. And it gets better. This is basically a dump, mix and cook recipe, so it is extremely easy to make. Get the recipe for Spiced Rhubarb Chutney.

Rhubarb Scones

We love a good scone in the morning and these features little bits of sweet and tart rhubarb. Crunchy coarse grain sugar on top is a nice addition. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Scones.

Potato Salad With Peas & Chives

We have several potato salad recipes for you, but this one is especially lovely in spring taking advantage of fresh peas and newly sprouted chives. Get the recipe for Potato Salad With Peas & Chives.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Cobblers are an easy dessert to make, especially when they are the kind that feature a drop-biscuits style topping, such as this one. The sweet juicy strawberries, and sweet and tart rhubarb are a classic combination, which works quite well with the buttery and rich cobbler topping. Get the recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler.

Green Salad With Radishes & Peas

Radishes of all sorts are considered a spring vegetable, and here they are showcased in a fresh leafy green salad along with peas. Get the recipe for Green Salad With Radishes & Peas.

Sautéed Radishes

We know many people walk by the bunches of red radishes in the supermarket, not knowing what they would do with them other than eating them as is. Sautéing them in butter mellows the flavor, and you will be thrilled with this new side dish that we think you will add to your spring repertoire. Get the recipe for Sautéed Radishes.
