Seasonal Recipe: Asparagus

Asparagus is one of our family's favorite veggies. We have our own asparagus patch and we seem to never have enough. We could eat it once a day and still not get sick of it. But, we don't eat it year around. We eat it only when it is fresh and local. Our family works hard to only eat local foods. Here is one of our favorite frugal recipes for beloved asparagus.

  1. Steam your asparagus
  2. Place on platter and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  3. Fry an egg
  4. Place egg on top of the asparagus
  5. Enjoy!
Oh yeah, it really is that simple, affordable and delicious. What is your favorite way to prepare asparagus?

Roasted or Grilled, depending on the weather. A little bit of olive oil and salt and you are ready to go.

I have recently been baking mine. I place washed stalks on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the amount/size of your stalks. So yummy! The kids even love it!

Make a glaze of apricot jam and soy sauce, brush on the asparagus and broil for a few minutes. This was the first time I ever enjoyed asparagus, and now I can't get enough.
