Spring Time Asparagus
March 17, 2014
Wow…this Winter has been a tough one, hasn’t it? Deep into February, and snow day after snow day after snow day, I honestly thought spring would never get here! Thank goodness the days are getting longer, and the sun is shining warmer…and everything is finally starting to turn green again!
One of my favorite things about Spring is the return of my favorite vegetable…asparagus. I absolutely love asparagus, and even though I know I can get fresh asparagus in the other seasons, there is nothing like the big, green stalks of asparagus at the market this time of year!
I love asparagus so much, I’ve partnered with Kraft Foods to create an Asparagus themed Pinterest Board – it’s full of some of my favorite asparagus recipes out there! I hope you’ll come on over and check it out and re-pin some of your favorite recipes.
I couldn’t leave this post without sharing a recipe featuring my favorite spring time ingredient! If you’ve never tried roasted asparagus, you must give it a try. Even non-asparagus fans will love asparagus done this way!
I gave a simple roasted asparagus recipe a flavor twist using the lite version of Kraft’s Asian Toasted Sesame dressing. I hope you enjoy it!
