What to cook with in May!

What to cook with in May!

Moving into May means we can start looking forward to the great British summer and we will start seeing a whole bunch more greenery available in the supermarkets. Hello salad season! We’ve teamed up with Ellie over at Ellie’s Kitchen to give you a rundown of what’s good to cook with this month so you and your family can cook with the most seasonal ingredients.

Peas – Peas are loved all around the UK but we often don’t use them as widely as we should. Don’t just stick to having peas with your fish and chips try them raw in salads or in pasta dishes too!

Broad beans – Often left on the shelf due to being a little more high maintenance, broad beans go side by side with peas and kids usually love them!

Tomatoes – British Tomato Week runs in May so what better time to celebrate the variety and range of tomatoes on offer! Bring out the fresh flavour of tommies with salt and olive oil and don’t forget to pop some cherry tomatoes in the little one's lunch boxes!

Asparagus – Asparagus is at its best in May so make the most of it. Kids a little unsure? Chop spears up small and mix into pasta bakes and spaghetti sauces.
