As we leave the depths of winter behind, it feels right to take the best seasonal ingredients and add a lighter, fresher citrus twist. Start with a light spring minestrone soup, which is made clear and broth-like, filled with lovely seasonal green vegetables and finished with lemon zest. Feel free to chop and change the green vegetables you use to include the best seasonal ingredients you can get. Finish with a slice of delicious orange polenta cake. It travels well or makes a gorgeous pudding, served with some whipped cream or mascarpone.
