The best asparagus recipes

On a weekend excursion to the market I spied the first local asparagus and brought home two fat bundles for dinner.

I added it to the grill, along with our flank steaks, and finished everything with a lemon-ramp (wild garlic) compound butter. It was an absolutely epic way to finish off the May long weekend. And now that asparagus is here, it’s going on the menu plan just about every day.

When it is harvested in its prime, asparagus doesn’t need much more than a little butter and salt; however, should you want to play around in the kitchen, this is Spring’s most versatile vegetable. From pizza to pickles, prepare to be inspired by this round-up of the best asparagus recipes from Simple Bites.

BREAKFAST & BRUNCH

I try to get my greens in my diet as often as I can and that includes breakfast. Asparagus pairs exceptionally well with eggs…and a little bacon doesn’t hurt either.
