12 Months Of Colour:
A Seasonal Guide


There’s nothing better than seasonal food. Snuggling up with winter warmers, getting fresh in the heat of summer, or finding the first taste of spring.

But in all the excitement, it’s easy to forget to eat in full colour. Especially when fresh vegetables go in and out of stock. But with the Birds Eye frozen vegetable range, you can have colourful vegetable on hand, all year round.

Here are a few pointers on how you can get started:


Warm up in Winter

In winter, the cold and dark can make us feel a little run down. It’s more important than ever that we get the right nutrients from our colourful veg!

These cold months are a great time for stews, roasts, soups, and much more. Try our frozen vegetables in stews, where they can release all the flavour and goodness that’s locked inside. Or, pair them with your favourite winter roasts to get some extra taste and texture. They can even be used in soups – perfect for warming up!


Get Fresh in Spring

After the winter months, it’s great to get fresh! Herbs, minty flavours, and steamed fish all pair fantastically with our colourful veg. Explore our recipes for risottos, deliciously-fresh pies, or even omelettes for that spring taste.

Give Summer some Colour

Summer food is one of our fun favourites. Simple, light food that’s easy to prepare. So this year, add a side plate of veg to the big BBQ, whip up a colourful, crunchy salad, and make your summer full of colour!

Why not give our Warm Mackerel & Pea Salad a try? It’s a twist on a summer salad that’s bursting with big summer flavours. And best of all, it’s quick and easy to make at home.

Keep Cosy in Autumn

As the hot days pass, cosying-up with hearty autumnal food just feels right. Pasta is an amazing partner for colourful vegetables – from bakes to salads, you can combine the world’s favourite carb with tasty colour. Or, experiment with some casseroles to properly get that autumn feel.
