It’s springtime once again! Do you know what that means? An intimate dinner with friends to talk about how they spent the holidays and what their plans are for the rest of the year. However, with all the spring cleaning you’re doing, you may not have enough time to prepare a good meal.
Here are some food suggestions that are not only scrumptious but easy to prepare, as well.
Begin with a strawberry salad topped with hazelnuts and mint for that sweet, minty flavor that can surely whet your appetite. Strawberries also have a low glycemic index, so you don’t have to worry about experiencing a sugar rush.
It’s springtime, so you may want to use light yet flavorful cream soup base recipes to highlight the best produce of the season. A great choice is a combo of parsley and fennel paired with garlic cream.
Bring the kitchen outside and enjoy a feast of grilled poultry and red meats. If you want to keep it light, however, you can always go for turkey or chicken breast. You can make gourmet burgers, pasta with colored veggies such as roasted chili peppers, and even tacos.
You can’t go wrong with fresh fruits! But, if you want something fancy, there’s always rhubarb jelly or pannacotta drizzled with strawberry coulis.
Steer away from the usual and make some kombucha! It’s a beautiful, refreshing twist on tea since it is rich in probiotics. Taste-wise, it’s sweet and tart at the same time, the perfect representation of the season.
This menu is simple, quick, and easy to make, which requires less time spent in the kitchen and more with your friends. Remember, what makes the dinner more memorable is the spirit of friendship. Keep the mood light and positive. Spread nothing but love, gratitude, and goodness.
