Spring is here! Officially! While it might be a few more weeks before local spring produce starts arriving in our grocery stores and farmers markets, it’s never too early to start planning out all the meals you’re going to make with asparagus and carrots and radishes and spring greens.
And that’s why we’ve gathered up some of our favorite vegetarian meal bowls for springtime. They’re colorful, light, fresh, and pretty much the embodiment of spring in a bowl.
