Five Delicious Asparagus Recipes – done in no time flat!

15 May

Asparagus is in season in these parts and that means a drive out to the North Fork of Long Island for asparagus, as much of it as I can afford and think we can eat in a few days. Leandro and I love it and usually just break off the bottoms, smear in olive oil and put under the broiler for ten minutes. We sprinkle them with salt and eat them with our fingers.

But sometimes, sometimes, we get a bit more fancy. Just a bit. Not complicated, because we don’t do a lot of complicated stuff, but just dressed up enough to make it special. Here are five terrific recipes for this springtime delight!

    We are always looking for new asparagus ideas and you start to see the same ones over and over. Each of these is very unique. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Great ideas. Beautiful photos! I have asparagus in the fridge and may be making one of these recipes (perhaps the wrap) tomorrow!
