'Tis the (asparagus) season!
Asparagus is more than just a delicious, seasonal ingredient. It’ll help you reach your daily vegetable quota—and give you the energy to conquer what’s bound to be an epic summer. Try one of these five recipes from the WL Recipe Finder for a quick-and-easy (green!) meal: all you need to do is decide whether you’re going to boil, fry or grill ’em.
This tasty recipe from Fresh Ideas Start Here uses three seasonal ingredients: halibut, asparagus and morel mushrooms. These flavours are then further enhanced with egg dashi and seaweed butter—the deceptive recipe (it looks complicated, but it’s really a cinch to make!) will impress all your dinner guests.
Julie Van Rosendaal‘s poached asparagus and eggs, topped with a delectable truffled hollandaise, is a hearty and healthy brunch option—and when paired with slices of toast, it eats like a deconstructed eggs Benedict.
This is the recipe for the always-on-the-go people out there. Simply roast asparagus, salmon and tomatoes for 10 minutes, add salt and pepper and serve toped with a creamy tahini dressing. Bonus: Leftovers can be used for the next day’s lunch—just add some grains.
Asparagus is a great side dish for any meal, but when it’s tossed on the grill and topped with goat cheese aioli and crispy shallots, it’s perfect for a summer dinner party—and according to chef Tim Mackiddie, it pairs nicely with a cool glass of sauvignon blanc.
Prepping this dish for your next patio party is easy: wrap asparagus in prosciutto ahead of time and then leave aside until you’re ready to put them on the barbecue. When cooked, the cheese will melt and the prosciutto will crisp, creating an ideal balance of texture.
