Spring Asparagus Has Arrived!

I’m getting hungry reading recipes online and thought why not share them? They sounded especially appetizing to me! You might also be interested to know that Asparagus is one of the “Clean 15” (lowest in pesticide) and not one of the “Dirty Dozen”. Organics are best, for many reasons, but I know they are not available or affordable all the time, so if you’d like, you can refer to EWG’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce.

Spring Asparagus and Bacon Hash (tasty for any time of day…Pancetta would also be a nice option)

Spring Asparagus Salad (or roasted, with a Lemony Vinaigrette and Capers would be great too)

Chicken and Asparagus Rolls

Asparagus and Gruyere Tart (perfect for an Easter Brunch!)

Chopped Spring Salad with Asparagus and Peas (I’d probably add some toasted Almonds or sliced or quartered Radishes for a pop of color, or maybe Tofu or White Beans to make it into an main course)

Do you have a favorite Asparagus recipe to share?
