Awesome Asparagus

I'm FINALLY in Seattle for the next few weekends and that means one thing: Farmers Markets! I'm going to try to hit the University District market early on Saturday. And, I'm going to have to pick up a lot of asparagus because I seem to keep running into delicious asparagus recipes. I've posted links to some of them below.

Asparagus Stir Fry. I've actually made this one and it was delicious. I really liked how it combined mint with basil. This is from one of my new favorite food blogs: 101 Cookbooks.

Asparagus Salad. Again, from 101 Cookbooks, it combines asparagus and broccolini. A match made in heaven.

Pickled Asparagus. This was printed in the New York Times, but comes from the book Well Preserved, which I'd like to check out.

Asparagus Risotto. This was written up in the New York Times by Mark Bittman. I've recently become a big fan of his.

Pasta with Asparagus, Arugula and Ricotta. For those days when I'm craving pasta.


  1. Yum! I will have to get some more asparagus at the farmers' market tomorrow and try one or two of these!

  2. Thanks Katie, I just picked up some asparagus at the farmers' market yesterday!

  3. Here's another recipe for you, I found it last year when I had excess on hand:

  4. Ooo -- I have 2 lbs of market asparagus and a bag of arugula in the fridge -- guess what's for dinner tonight!
