Now that it’s finally starting to feel like Spring, I couldn’t resist sharing some of Sargent Choice’s best Spring-flavored recipes! Go outside and enjoy the nice weather then invite friends over to make delicious, healthy food. Happy Spring :)


Nothing is more refreshing to start your day off with than a smoothie. For a tropical flavor try our Berry Mango Smoothie. Busy day? give yourself the energy you need with a Purple Power Smoothie.

Want something savory in the morning? This Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata was a hit at Karen Jacob’s Test Kitchen


Spicy roasted chickpeas and edamame hummus are great additions to a salad or sandwich!

Forget buying frozen, processed chicken nuggets. These Tofu Dipping Sticks are addictive! Don’t believe me? Not only were they a favorite at Karen Jacob’s Test Kitchen, they were also picked to be on the menu for Sargent Choice Night!

This Avocado Quinoa Salad is light, refreshing, creamy, and crunchy. Perfect for a picnic in the park!


Switch up traditional crab cakes with these Salmon Cakes served with lettuce and corn on the cob

Love caprese salads? Then you’ll love our Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Pizza

Another Karen Jacob Test Kitchen recipe deemed worthy for Sargent Choice Night, this chana masala with roti is packed full of bright flavors that will leave you craving warmer weather!

Other Spring-worthy dinners:


Top these mini cheesecakes with fresh fruit from the Farmer’s Market for a fresh, yet creamy spring time treat!

If you’ve ever eaten at a BU dining hall, chances are you’ve tried our delicious heart healthy oatmeal raisin cookies. Perfect to bring on a picnic lunch or to a neighborhood part!


Happy Spring!
