ASPARAGUS SEASON

Posted By Ina On April 21, 2013 @ 9:52 pm In Breakfast, Side Dishes, Vegetarian | 10 Comments

We live for asparagus season in this household.  When it arrives – we have asparagus dishes pretty much every day.  Here is an interesting article on the health benefits of this power food.

This is not so much of a recipe, but more of a method – so easy, and so tasty.  I’ll also post some of our favorite asparagus recipes to entice your taste buds.

ROASTED ASPARAGUS AND TOMATOES WITH FETA CHEESE AND POACHED EGGS:

8 fresh asparagus spears

feta cheese

dash of season salt – I used this one

dash of balsamic vinegar

3 small tomatoes sliced

splash of olive oil

salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Add the asparagus to a roasting pan along with the tomatoes, and a sprinking of feta cheese, olive oil, season salt, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper tossing to combine.

Roast for 20 minutes and serve along side a poached egg.  This dish is lovely on it’s own, or as a side dish to any main meal.

Then we have a lovely CREAM OF ASPARAGUS VEGETABLE SOUP:

One of my very favorite risotto’s:  VEGETARIAN RISOTTO:

And finally a delicious SHRIMP AND ASPARAGUS SALAD:

Recently, I had a most delicious asparagus dish at a restaurant – it was to die for.  It was asparagus wrapped in goats cheese and polenta.  It looked difficult to make, but I will give it a try, and keep everyone posted if it works out. Not holding my breath here…but wish me luck!
