Do you have a favorite vegetable? I love many, but I’m truly under an asparagus spell. Everyone complains about the, ahem, side effects. But who cares, really? *shrug* If I had the space and a green thumb, I would totally try to harvest some.
I shared my favorite recipes on Facebook last week, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t share them here, as well. For all of you who love the green spears like I do, but who aren’t on Facebook, this is for you.
Spring Vegetable Couscous with Chicken >> Layers of flavor from different vegetables, seasoned chicken, and a hint of lemon. Easy and light.
Easy Fish Piccata with Roasted Asparagus >> you just can’t go wrong with butter, wine, and lemon
Creamy Asparagus Soup >> thick, creamy, and tangy. The asparagus flavor is apparent, but not over-powering. This is like butter on your tongue. Sublime, my friends. Completely sublime.
Open-Faced Roasted Asparagus with Fresh Ricotta and Pesto >> I once made this every single day for two weeks in a row.
Asparagus Muenster Melt with Pesto Spread >> mild flavor and smooth, soft texture of cheese, combined with salty prosciutto and sweet tomatoes. An absolute favorite!
Spicy Pork Asparagus Stir-Fry >> I make this all year long! Spicy with a hint of sweetness and so so easy. One of my favorite weeknight meals.
I’m so excited it’s in season again. Yay spring!
