I love asparagus for many reasons. First, it is a healthy vegetable — it has many antioxidants, vitamins (like vitamin K), and fiber. But it is also delicious served as a side, or when used as a star ingredient in many spring dishes. I wasn't a big fan of asparagus until I started roasting it, but then I really fell in love with it. We have had a happy relationship since as I have experimented using it in many different recipes.
The following recipes may help you fall in love with asparagus yourself, if you haven't already.
4. Asparagus Soup with Gremolata:
Another simple soup, but with a tangy addition of a gremolata on top. This simple addition adds so much flavor to an otherwise mild soup!
