asparagus season.


asparagus frittata is very good. sounds a little weird, but good.

Also planning to roll them up in veal. Maybe a soup too.

  1. Well, it won't be here until mid-May.

    1. We still have snow on the ground until April so usually do not have it show up until June.

      Asparagus frittata is awesome! I love asparagus and cook it so many ways. It is excellent shaved in salads, too.

      My husband and I go wild asparagus hunting each year in Croatia - it tastes very, very different but we love it. There they make frittatas with them regularly in season.

      1. A lovely dish for good asparagus - boil until just barely tender. Drain on a tilted plate to let excess liquid drain, arrange on a plate, and dress with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper, and serve at room temperature.

          Yes, and I also love it grilled or roasted with tarragon grapefruit vinaigrette or lemon aioli. And of course soup.

        2. Yes! On sale at my local MB for $1.49/lb yoo hoo!!

          1. Esp. when Michigan asparagus comes in I can just have a whole meal of it steamed with a little butter and great parm/reggiano slivered on top. MI asparagus and strawberries are miracles of nature! We wait all year for these treasures.
