Awesome Asparagus Recipes

Six fantastic dishes to make this spring
Jane Bruce


Whether you like your asparagus thick or thin, there’s really no denying the deliciousness of this spring vegetable. Aside from its numerous health benefits, it’s a versatile ingredient to work with.

Try shaving the raw stalks for a quick salad with some shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and cracked pepper, or putting it atop pizza like in the recipe below. Or, asparagus can be chopped and thrown into a frittata or scrambled with eggs. Too much work? Then just roast it in the oven or cook in a pan with a little lemon butter and call it a day.

For some new twists and old favorites, check out the recipes below and have a very happy spring dish.
