May’s Seasonal Food

Low Carb High Fat Meal. Lamb Mince and Tomato Ragu. Bowl on table. Napkin with heart patten. On Wooden Table. Grated Cheese on top of Ragu Sauce,
Lamb Ragu

Lamb is still in season so make sure you stock up this month. Our Lamb Ragu recipe is a family favourite and it is so easy to make in a large batch and then freeze portions for future busy weeks. Lamb also works really well in a curry, have a go at our creamy Lamb Curry for a beautiful LCHF ‘takeaway’ treat. With sunnier days on the horizon, it is the perfect time to try our Lamb Kofta Patties on your BBQ.

Mint

This month this fabulous herb comes into season. Mint is a really easy plant to grow in your garden or in a pot on a windowsill. Of course mint goes well with lamb and features in our Lamb Kofta Patties and Lamb Curry. However there are other great ways to make the most of this herb. For something a little different, have a go at our Feta and Mint Fritters. Use your fresh mint to upgrade your plate of greens and make our Creamy Spring Greens side. You can also use mint to flavour your water, pop a handful of mint leaves in your water bottle to infuse or make mint tea by pouring boiling water on a handful of fresh leaves.

Mackerel

Mackerel is a brilliant source of Omega 3 fatty acids which help to keep your heart healthy. This Mackerel Pate recipe is great for a quick lunch. Who says you need toast to enjoy pate?

Spring Greens

Spring Greens are still in season and are brilliant value for money. This vegetable works beautifully in our Creamy Zest Spring Vegetables. If you need a simple seasonal side, you cant go wrong with this easy Spring Green side dish.

Make sure you enjoy these great vegetables while they’re in season (and normally on offer in your supermarkets). Have you been getting creative in the kitchen? Why not share your seasonal creations in our Private Members Group?
