Spring Vegetables | 春の野菜

Spring, a fresh new start, new buds sprout to live the next four seasons.
Spring vegetables, vivid and lively, bursting with energy awaken from hibernation and power from mother earth.
My most favorite of spring vegetables are the ‘bamboo shoots’. As the temperature rises, bamboo shoots start sprouting from the southern part of Japan (this one is from Kumamoto prefecture). The upper half tips are soft and make a typical Japanese dish, ‘boiled wakatake – young bamboo tips’ served with fresh seaweeds.
