10 Healthy Asparagus Recipes for Spring

When I find myself getting caught in spontaneous rain showers, enjoying late-evening sunsets and waking up to a dusting of pale yellow pollen all over my car in the morning — that’s when I know it’s spring! Not only do I get spring fever to go outside (hello working on my patio!) and start exploring new trails to blaze, but I also get adventurous in trying new recipes for the season’s produce! Asparagus is one of spring’s finest veggies, and I’m pumped to get stocked up on them from the farmers market over the next few weeks.

10 HEALTHY Asparagus Recipes for Spring!

Asparagus spears are much like wildflowers — they can be laid-back for a weeknight supper or dressed up for an elegant backyard dinner party. Either way, they can be the show-stopper at any meal!

On the nutrition front, Asparagus is rich in antioxidants, high in fiber, and is a natural diuretic, helping cleanse excess salt from your body.

Points for color. Points for health benefits. Negative points for stinky pee — but it’s worth it! 😉

Basically asparagus is the cool kid at the table and there are so many ways you can flavor, cook and serve it. That’s why I put together this fun round-up of recipes from some of my fav blogging friends. Get inspired, grab yourself a bundle of spears and get cooking!

      Asparagus is so yummy that it is worth putting up with the foul pee smell, ha! Tonight we are going to try ribboned asparagus on pizza. Your Asparagus Feta Salad has already been bookmarked for a side dish next week 🙂
