20 Ways to Cook Asparagus

Pin this post on Pinterest

There are so many reasons to love spring and the fact that asparagus is in season in one of them. This is the best time of year to buy & eat asparagus, so I take full advantage of the season. The price is usually fairly cheap too as I often find it on sale for $1.49/pound at this time of year.

  1. Thanks for this! I got 2 bunches of asparagus in my last Bountiful Baskets so this was perfectly timed :) I was going to make your Curried Quinoa & Asparagus Salad, but my daughter used my last garbanzo beans to make hummus ;), so I made the Martha Steward Linguine with Asparagus & Egg, instead. Really good :) Thanks! http://bakeoff-flunkie.blogspot.com/2013/04/pasta-with-asparagus-egg.html

  2. Hi Kristia - Thank you so much for mentioning the Asparagus & Basil Pesto! Really appreciate it. Also love the list, you can't beat asparagus this time of year.

  3. Just wrap it in bacon and put in a moderate oven until bacon is fully cooked. Very easy, very delicious!

  4. I roast a bunch of asaparagus with onions, garlic, olive oil until crispy. Totally worth the extra heat in the kitchen. Can't wait to try the quinoia salad :)

  5. Thanks for the shout out to Virtually Homemade!
