Asparagus Recipes

Look to asparagus when you need a quick and easy side dish — these slender stalks require only minimal preparation. They cook up quickly with olive oil and salt and pepper on the grill or roasted in the oven. Look for thinner stalks if you want to sauté on the stove top or work them into salad recipes.

Asparagus recipes are great for a spring brunch. One of the best ways to win over a crowd is with prosciutto wrapped asparagus or creamy asparagus soup.
