Asparagus season is quickly approaching, so gather a few bunches of this delicious green veggie and whip up some of these asparagus recipes this week!
If you’ve already got the grill fired up for meat, throw your asparagus on, too, for an easy and delicious veggie side. You’ll need one bunch of asparagus, a lemon, olive oil, pepper, and kosher salt. Toss the asparagus with the oil, salt, and pepper before putting it right on the grill grates and grill for 3 – 5 minutes until the asparagus is tender. Take the asparagus off the grill and drizzle lemon juice over the stalks just before serving.
Asparagus Risotto is a superstar dish to have in your summer recipe repertoire because it can function as a side dish or a complete meal all on its own, which is helpful when the weather is hot and you want to reduce how often you turn the oven on. Though risotto has a reputation of being difficult to cook, this recipe will walk you through the dish step by step to help you make creamy, delicious risotto.
Another no-cook summer meal for the win! Make a big batch of this asparagus salad (keep the dressing separate to avoid soggy salad) at the beginning of the week and enjoy it whenever you need a quick, delicious meal that doesn’t require heat. In addition to asparagus and feta, radishes, red onions, lemon zest, and a dijon dressing pack a ton of flavor into this salad.
Roasted asparagus, feta cheese, and lemon come together to create a bright, tangy, creamy pasta that whips up in under 30 minutes. You can also add nutritional yeast for extra cheese flavor, or grated parmesan if that’s what you’ve got on hand!
