16 easy spring greens recipes

Why we love spring greens

Spring greens are cabbages which are ready for harvest in the early part of the year. Sliced into ribbons and gently fried with garlic, they make a wonderful side for slow roast lamb or roast chicken. However, their peppery flavour and firm texture mean they hold up well to bold Asian flavours too.

Health benefits of spring greens

You’ll get a healthy hit of vitamins C and K, calcium and fibre when you eat spring greens, contributing to a healthy gut, immune system and bones.
