It’s about to be March, the days are getting longer, and we’re that much closer to spring. I’m counting down the days until I’m back riding my bike on the lakefront path, taking Sidney, Viggo, and Lachlan to the beach, and grilling on the patio.
Until then we’re kicking off the month with 31 seasonal recipes to cook in March that you’re going to love.
What’s in season in March?
Colorful produce is coming back! Pretty soon we’ll be cooking with all of the berries, but for now, be sure to stock up on:
- Brussels Sprouts
- Sweet Potato
P.S. did you know we have dedicated ingredient pages? YES! Click any of the produce names above to see all of those recipes, or head to our Recipe Index to filter by even more.
This month you’ll find sweet & savory breakfasts, fresh lunch ideas that are perfect to prep for work or eat on the go, cozy one pan meals, and some of my fav desserts to make this time of year.
If you make any of these seasonal spring recipes be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it! You can also share a photo of your creation on Instagram with the hashtag #ambitiouskitchen. Enjoy xoxo!

Lovely round-up friend! Such a user friendly way to figure out what’s in season and what to cook. Plus, those wraps and cookies look BOMB 😀 😀 😀
Thanks Dana! Absolutely. The wraps + cookies are LIFE <3 <3
I have just discovered you and love the look of your recipes
Great! Hope you find some that you love 🙂
Nothing beats a spring menu than recipes with fresh fruit and simplistic vegetables! I definitely need to make a vegan carrot cake, lemon blueberry pancakes, and a spring green curry. Just give me a whole platter of those chickpea salad wraps and I’d be the happiest gal in the world!!
Absolutely!! And love those salad wraps. SO GOOD.
Hi Monique! I have been following your site and making your recipes for several months now. I am enjoying your content and love that you are a fellow Chicago gal. Help! I have a TreeNut (includes coconut) and peanut allergy and want to keep making your recipes. When appropriate, can you make suggestions for the best flour, oil, etc that isn’t nut based? Us allergy gals like to be healthy too!
I love all your recipes and your beautiful pictures. I tried many of them and all were a success. We are moving to plant based diet so those you post with that focus are so appreciated. Keep them coming!
So happy to hear that! Hope you keep finding recipes here that you love 🙂
thank you for sharing all of these recipes, have to give it to you for Cheddar-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf, wow, what a creative mashup or pairing or whatever it is, it’s very creative, so much appreciated
Thanks so much! Can’t wait for you to try it 🙂
Carrot cake muffins can be a healthy breakfast option if they are made with wholesome ingredients and in moderation.
I came across your website and recipes online recently, and I’ve already tried two of them. I picked those two recipes because they reminded me of Slavic dishes that I’m familiar with, as my wife is from Lviv, Ukraine. It seems like we have something in common – small world!
