I’ve really been enjoying asparagus this year, especially when I get to taste Hollie’s breakfast muffins and raw shaved salad. I am so inspired by many of the beautiful creations of bloggers and chefs, and wanted to share a little round-up of some recipes I’m dying to try. Just make sure you check out our asparagus prep video before you dive in!
Asparagus Bacon Spring Rolls, White on Rice
We love spring rolls at JoyFoodly (we even have this step-by-step guide to summer spring rolls), and I’m really excited by the idea of combining asparagus and bacon. This lovely blog post from White on Rice includes tips on throwing a tapas party! Are we invited?
Sesame Asparagus Salad, Zenbelly
I’m a big fan of Zenbelly, and love that this recipe only has 5 main ingredients. Just chop, blanch, and mix!
Raw Asparagus Quinoa Salad with Almond and Jalapeño, My Darling Lemon Thyme
I love seeing raw asparagus recipes (like JoyFoodly’s shaved salad), since it’s so tasty even before you cook it! Pair that with quinoa and a little kick of jalapeño, and I’m sold. Yum!
Asparagus Broccolini Frittata, The Sunday Table
Asparagus doesn’t just have to be a dinner side dish – I’m fully convinced that it should be a breakfast staple, based on this frittata by The Sunday Table.
Cold Lentil, Asparagus, and Goat Cheese Salad, Drum Beets
Lentils and asparagus are sure to make a hearty lunch. I especially like that this looks like it would pack well on a day trip or picnic!
Baked Halibut with Asparagus, Leeks, and Dill, Gluten Free Girl
Asparagus and halibut sounds like a great combination, and I love the little tutorial on making parchment paper packets for your fish.
Warm Asparagus Salad with Basil and Mint Pistou, Sprouted Kitchen
This elegant looking salad has the added touch of mint and basil, which is such a fun combination of flavors.
Spring Green Basil & Basil Pasta, Love & Lemons
I love pairing asparagus with pasta, albeit gluten free. My first try with this was JoyFoodly’s super simple asparagus sauce, but I’m inspired by this Love & Lemons recipe that includes asparagus, peas, spinach and basil. That’s a lot of lovely green in your pasta.
