25 Ways to Use Asparagus

25 Ways to Use Asparagus

We’re in peak asparagus season! Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies to serve because picky eaters almost always enjoy it. The best part? It’s so good for you. Raw asparagus is low in calories (about 4 calories per spear), and it’s a source of fiber and potassium. Asparagus also contains glutathione, a powerful anticarcinogen and antioxidant. So make use of your local green market’s plentiful asparagus stock with these 25 fantastic uses of asparagus. In no particular order:

  1. This basic Roasted Asparagus recipe from Ina Garten is a good place to start your asparagus adventures.
  2. Spaghetti With Asparagus, Smoked Mozzarella and Prosciutto from Giada De Laurentiis is luscious and rich but takes only a few minutes to prepare.
  3. White asparagus is grown under soil to prevent photosynthesis from turning the stalks green. Just remember to peel the stalks before you cook them. Try it in Emeril’s Fried Soft Shell Crab, White Asparagus and Wild Sorrel With a Grilled Ramp Dressing.
  4. Creamy Farfalle With Cremini, Asparagus and Walnuts from Giada is a creamy crowd-pleaser.
  5. Wrap asparagus in almost anything. Rachael Ray wraps it in bacon, Giada wraps it with prosciutto and smoked salmon (pictured at top), Ellie Krieger wraps it in smoked turkey and Paula Deen wraps it in phyllo dough.
  6. Asparagus and Zucchini Crudiis a bright and fresh appetizer, ready in minutes.
  7. Emeril Lagasse’s Asparagus Soup hits all the right spots on those not-quite-summer evenings.
  8. Alton Brown’s Wild Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto will get you in the spring state of mind.
  9. Everyone’s invited to brunch at your place with Tyler Florence’s Deep-Dish Ham Quiche With Herb and Asparagus Salad.
  10. Rachael kicks up your weeknight meals in less than 30 minutes with Vicki’s Favorite Chicken With Grapes, Couscous and Roasted Asparagus.
  11. Giada’s Grilled Asparagus and Melon Salad is a light and refreshing summer treat.
  12. Replace calorie-heavy Chinese takeout with this lighter Sesame Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry.
  13. Mario Batali’s Mushroom, Asparagus and Potato Cake is perfect comfort food for a rainy day.
  14. Nadia G. heats up her Spicy Sauteed Asparagusside dish with some tamari and chile flakes.
  15. Food Network Magazine utilizes store-bought rotisserie chicken for Chicken and Asparagus Crepes.
  16. Michael Symon’s Tempura Asparagus is a great addition to any meal.
  17. Turn your asparagus into a pesto, then pull a Bobby Flay and throw it all on the grill with Grilled Flatbread With Asparagus Pesto and Fontina.

  20. Everything tastes better in cupcake form, including Giada’s Baked Macaroni and Cheese Cupcakes.
  21. Paula takes her asparagus on the go with her Lady and Sons Asparagus Sandwich.
  22. Break out the grill on your next Meatless Monday. Aida Mollenkamp utilizes tons of fresh veggies like portobellos and asparagus for The Girl Burger.
