Spring is just around the corner, ushering in the new season of shopping in-person at Boulder County Farmers Market.

Potatoes, leeks, carrots, mushrooms, red onions, leafy greens, radishes, and cabbage are currently in season. If you’re on the search for ways to incorporate these fresh veggies into your meal plan, consider the seasonal recipes we share here:

Vegetable Soup

Few dishes are more comforting on a winter day than classic vegetable soup. This recipe is customizable, but recommended veggies include carrots, potatoes, celery, tomatoes, green beans, and corn. It’s also super simple to make and freezes well for enjoying at a later date. Plus, you can make it on the stovetop or in a slower cooker.

Chicken Breast Sauteed in Sweet Red Onion and Lemon

When you’re looking for a way to use the fresh red onions you find at the farmers market, this chicken breast sauteed in sweet red onion and lemon won’t disappoint. For a dinner for one, you’ll just need one large chicken breast, half of a red onion, and half of a small lemon, plus seasonings. This recipe cooks in one pan, so the prep work and cleanup are stress-free.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Although this dish is popular for St. Patrick’s Day, it can be enjoyed all year round--and especially when cabbage is in season! This corned beef and cabbage recipe is best prepared in a Dutch oven. It requires just 10 minutes of prep time, but takes nearly three hours to complete. The finished result will be a hearty meal that you’ll be able to enjoy for several days.
