At last, it’s spring! The official first day of spring was last week (Wednesday, the 20th!) and I couldn’t be more excited to be sharing this Spring Vegetable Soup with spiralized carrots, fresh spring leeks and peas, and tarragon.

Spring Vegetable Soup

I love living in NJ because of the change of seasons. With each new season, comes a whole new batch of seasonal vegetables at the farmer’s markets. If you missed my post on what to make this spring, check out this post. I love walking through the farmer’s markets and seeing what’s new.

One of my favorite things to do at the change of a season is walk through a farmer’s market, discover vegetables or varieties of vegetables I haven’t seen before and take them home and cook with them.

Spring Vegetable Soup

With this soup, I’ve loaded in tons of spring veggies, added white beans for extra protein (there’s good protein in peas, too!), and stirred in fresh spring tarragon for an earthy, beautiful fragrance and taste. I love seeing the carrots get larger in the spring and summertime, because they’re perfect for spiralizing. I also think carrots are totally underrated!

Pair this vegetable soup with a crusty bread, or stir in some shredded chicken or quinoa, and enjoy it as a heartier meal. Or, just have it as a side soup (I snacked on leftovers for a few days!) or a light meal. You’ll be surprised how hearty it is, thanks to those fresh spring spiralized carrots!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
