Eating seasonal foods is always at the top of my priorities. This probably comes from my upbringing in Peru, where we only ate the fruits and vegetables that were in season. Back then it was almost impossible to find imported ingredients at the supermarkets, so we simply had to be patient and wait until our favorite foods were in season to enjoy them.
Even though some people may find this lack of options undesirable, I really appreciate having grown up in such a way. I now know how important eating seasonal foods really is, as every ingredient produced at any given time has the exact nutrients you need to thrive during that season. Eating winter foods in the summer will make you feel over heated, and eating summer foods in the winter will make you feel like a snowman even when you're indoors.
I made this easy and quick recipe with all this in mind. Spring is the perfect time of the year to consume asparagus, leeks, and peas. Parsley is also in season at this time of the year, and carrots are produced year round, so they're always in season!
