Lemon Asparagus Risotto
Lower in fat than most risotto recipes but no one will know! I like to serve this as a main dish under some steamed halibut or other white fish.
Asparagus, Leek, and Potato Soup
This was just a creation I came up with when my asparagus was looking a little old. At first, I thought I was going to add some sort of cream base, but the soup ended up not needing it. The vegetables just taste lovely as they are. Even my husband who hates soup and asparagus LOVED this! It is also a great way to use almost-expired vegetables in your veggie drawer!
Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms
I love roasting veggies and hit on this WONDERFUL combo. You could use a Hollandaise on the side.... but why??
Chef John's Asparagus Souffle
Contrary to popular belief, souffles are not very difficult, as long as you respect the laws of physics. I hope you give this recipe a try, and also experiment with other vegetables. Broccoli, artichokes, leeks, spinach, or any other edible plant you can puree should work with the same basic procedure.
So quick and easy, this cheesy asparagus dish goes great with pork or poultry. Even those in my family that turn up their noses to asparagus, love this dish!
Fresh Asparagus Soup
A creamy asparagus soup accented with yogurt, lemon, and Parmesan cheese. Everyone loves it! You can substitute soy products to make this recipe vegan.
Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
This is a simple and delicious side dish. Fresh asparagus is baked until tender, and dressed with a blend of butter, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar.
Parmesan cheese adds a salty, savory component to sweet, tender asparagus. Try it next to grilled fish or lamb.
Fried Asparagus with Bacon
This is a different twist on asparagus, sure to please and have them coming back for more!
