Asparagus: Leftover Logic

When asparagus bursts into season, we happily snatch it up--it's as much a pleasure to eat the fresh stalks raw, grilled, or simply blanched with a squeeze of lemon juice or a little melted butter. When you have leftovers from your asparagus binge, the easiest way to use it is to toss it into a green garden salad (or incorporate it into a salad Nicoise), chop it up and use it in an omelet, or tuck it into a pita with other veggies for a refreshing sandwich. But let's take those leftover asparagus to another level.

How Does a Vegan Survive the Holidays? Deliciously.

Let's face it: to your average holiday reveler, the phrase "vegan dessert" has about as much appeal as, say, "asparagus milkshake." While being a vegan no longer seems to invite the kind of puzzlement and even outright hostility that it once did (like announcing you were a Communist), instead you can often expect a sort of pity, especially around the holidays. After all, the classic holiday treats are, at their essence, all about two fundamental ingredients that even the vegan's fellow traveler -- the vegetarian -- can enjoy without compromise: eggs and butter.
