Twenty Favorite Asparagus Recipes from Kalyn's Kitchen (plus many more recipes from my friends)

Lots of asparagus recipe ideas to feed your asparagus addiction; happy Spring!

20 favorite asparagus ideas

I don't know if anyone notices the schedule on the blog like I do, but I've had a couple of unplanned days off from both my blogs due to a bout with food poisoning that was definitely not fun.  I got it from a restaurant, and my sister Pam and her baby grandson were also sick from our dinner together. So there hasn't been much cooking or blogging going on around here and I'm still not totally up to par, but it's nice to be back!  I don't feel much like cooking yet, so I thought I'd share some of my Favorite Asparagus Recipes; some of these are things I make over and over every year, hope you enjoy!

Easter Breakfast Casserole with Asparagus and Artichoke Hearts; this is one of my favorite new recipes with asparagus!

Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Ham; this is a great appetizer or buffet dish.

Farro Salad with Asparagus, Red Bell Pepper, and Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette; if you haven't tried Farro, it's chewy and delicious.

Slow Roasted Asparagus is something I've been making for years.  This can share the oven with a main dish, which makes it a handy way to cook asparagus.

Roasted Wild Salmon and Asparagus with Double-Lemon Oil; an easy and delicious dinner that's Low-Carb and Paleo!

Barely-Cooked Asparagus with Basil Pesto; it doesn't get much better than this for flavorful asparagus!

Whole Wheat Orzo Casserole with Salmon, Asparagus, and Feta; love this casserole with Spring flavors!

Roasted Asparagus with Creamy Tahini-Peanut Dipping Sauce; such a great combination of flavors.

Roasted Salmon and Asparagus Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette; the mustard dressing is fantastic on the salmon and asparagus.

Easy and Amazing Roasted Asparagus with Gremolata; if you haven't tried Gremolata, you must try it!

Asparagus and Tomato Frittata with Havarti and Dill; another great idea for brunch.

Sauteed Asparagus with Melted Gorgonzola and Pine Nuts; do I need to say more than Gorgonzola and Pine Nuts?

 Grilled Asparagus with Parmesan; this could use a new photo, but it's delicious!

Salad with Asparagus, Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, and Feta; this is low-carb and delicious!

Chicken with Asparagus and Three Cheeses; another old favorite that could use a new photo, but this is so good!

More to Chew On:

  2. Kalyn - so sorry to hear about your food poisoning - hope you're feeling better. In the meanwhile, loving all your asparagus recipes - I've been enjoying all the fresh Spring asparagus.

  3. Thanks Jeanette. I am on the mend at last! Loving the asparagus here as well!

  4. It's true, it's true -- you can never have too many asparagus recipes! Thanks for the links to mine. I'm glad you're feeling better. Food poisoning is no fun.

  6. I am in love with the asparagus salad with kalamata olives, tomatoes and feta recipe. That is 100% my cup of tea. Pinned! Thanks for sharing a link to my round-up too Kalyn! So many great ideas out there.

  7. I would be hard pressed to chose my favorite among these. We love asparagus and I always do an asparagus medley for my Easter post and this year was no exception. I can't think of a more versatile vegetable. My favorite way to prepare it is to poach it and serve it with a variety of different vinaigrettes.

    Happy Easter Kalyn,

  8. Lydia, I am so much better, thanks!

    Betsy, I have never cooked white asparagus, but I think most any asparagus recipe can be made wither either white or green. You could also look in Food Blog Search.
