10 Outstanding Asparagus Recipes: Best of the Blogs

asparagus: best of the blogsIt’s spring! And that means asparagus, everybody’s favorite, easy to make, always delicious vegetable. Okay, there’s 10 feet of snow on the ground in St. Louis, and people in D.C. are shivering outside the Supreme Court. But they’re thinking of only one thing: Asparagus, which is coming up in many parts of the country. As has been up all year in places like California and F-L-A.

 

But whether you’re actually ready to make some of these terrific asparagus recipes or not, we know everyone is standing by, just waiting to get those tasty green spears, fresh from the garden, under a little steam and then under a stream of olive oil.

 

Some of our favorite blogs are going wild right now with asparagus recipes. And we’re not waiting for the snow to melt to gather them up. You shouldn’t either, because it won’t be long now. Unless you’re in St. Louis.

 

So get out the steamer and the frying pan. You want to be ready when the first tips of beautiful green asparagus come shooting up. It never hurts to be prepared — for the best vegetarian dishes of the season!
