Asparagus Recipes: Enjoy the Flavors of the Season

There’s never been a better time to enjoy asparagus, and we’ve got some great recipes to share. Whether you’re looking for simple roast asparagus or a tender, flaky quiche, we’ve got fantastic recipes that will make wonderful accompaniments to your Easter Sunday brunch or dinner.

I love the flavor of asparagus and have always enjoyed experimenting with asparagus recipes in the kitchen. It’s funny then that one of my favorite asparagus preparations is utterly simple: roasted asparagus. Roasting brings out the flavor and texture of asparagus wonderfully. You can also roast it with olive oil, some lemon zest, and a few squeezes of juice. The results are nicely cooked spears that retain a bit of their bite. You’ll also love the vivid green color they bring to your table. Get our easy recipe here.

Quiche is also a tasty, traditional dish, and ours is a seasonal celebration with asparagus and ramps. The secret to a great quiche is the crust, and we’ve got a simple recipe for an impossibly flaky one. Since the filling is a cinch to make, you can make the crust ahead of time and then spend 15 minutes putting the quiche together day of. Easy and delicious–what more could you want?

Of course, we’re not the only ones here on the Family Kitchen loving asparagus. Check out Julie’s marinated asparagus, Laura’s phyllo-wrapped asparagus spears, or Angie’s elegant asparagus tart.
