I have recently started a love affair with asparagus and am excited to try some new recipes! I have been secretly dicing it in our dinner dishes, so the kids do not notice and poo poo the veggies! Thanks for the great post!

Yes, the secret of pure energy is clean nutrition
over food-bulk and unnecessary tissue, the one
encompassing principle in reaping true harvests.

I actually prefer asparagus to most other foods. I'm abnormal because I love spinach and asparagus :)

Lucky you! We forage for a large part of our aspguaars but with the rainiest weather since 1916 our wild aspguaars is under a good 4-5 of river water still. Maybe the small patch in our garden will produce a little better this year. Enjoy your aspguaars.:)

We have invented a new product using asparagus as a salad dressing/topping. My friends and I can't stop eating it all winter long but because of the expence of trying to market an entirely new product we are not at that stage yet. Perhaps a restaurant chain would be interested in ordering it and having an exclusive salad. I'm telling you this stuff rocks.

Well, we have the now-traditional spinach omelet, which is always enjoyable; but I tell you, adding prepared asparagus to your morning egg white omelet seasoned to taste is uniquely delicious and quite satisfying--at least for us (especially with some toast and . . . [gasp] coffee). OK, it's almost a "total health breakfast."

I like to Steam my Asparagus for a short time, is this a good way to cook the vegetable, it was not listed but I find it much more flavorful steamed and the texture is much nicer. Cindy in STL.
