I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend! I feel some cooking coming on…
This week on FriFran we have published….
We have published the May Seasonal Produce Roundup a review of all the seasonal produce you will find in your local (UK – and most of the northern hemisphere) markets this month. You can tell from the accompanying picture that asparagus is starting to come into season! A sure sign that summer is on the way. Full details and links to recipes are in the blog post link.
When I see Jersey Royal potatoes in the markets it is a real signpost that summer is on its way. Jersey Royals are just the best potato ever (and I don’t say that lightly). Super versatile and with an interesting background – you can find out more in my blog post – The World’s Best Potatoes – Jersey Royals – and the Jersey Royal Potatoes with Mint recipe. Jersey Royals are fantastic in salads, wonderful as a hot side (with lots of mint) and their appearance tells me that the weather will warm up soon – very soon!!!
Seasonal produce is sometimes not so easy to get hold of if you don’t live close to shops or markets, or sometimes you just don’t have the time. One of my favourite store cupboard favourites is Miso Soup with Tofu and Shitake Mushrooms which is souper quick and easy and you can make with Tetrapak silken tofu and dried shitake mushrooms – which are amazing!
FriFran Resource Library news…
Following the opening of the FriFran Resource Library (you can sign up for free access) we have been busy pulling together a free e-book with quick (less than 30 minutes) and easy gluten-free | vegan | + plus recipes. As promised last week the Resource Library will grow and grow over time. Look out later this week for the e-book. We would be super interested to hear from you if there is anything you would find useful/ essential/ helpful that we can add to the library!
Have a wonderful week!
