Asparagus was 88 cents a pound at the grocery store last weekend. Yay! Seriously, I was really excited. Sometimes, it’s the small things in life.
I know it might sound funny, but I get really excited when it’s asparagus season. My favorite quick vegetable side dish is oven roasted asparagus with olive oil and a sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan. I also like it raw, which I first tried last spring when I made this delicious and healthy shaved asparagus salad.
Since you can get asparagus for such a great price right now, I rounded up my 8 favorite vegetarian asparagus recipes I plan to make this spring.
