Oh asparagus – you come around only once a year and your season is oh-so-short!

I’m tempted to leave organic asparagus alone and just lightly steam it to get the best out of it (and because I’ve waited so long I kind of just want it to taste like asparagus!). But every so often I get a hankering to do something a little different, so I’ve lined up some tried and true favourites with some cool stuff I’d like to try – I hope they inspire you to get out of your asparagus rut this season 🙂

And if you haven’t yet, order your asparagus here.

This is one of my favourite ways to eat asparagus, they stay tender-crisp but with a fabulous light crunchy coating. I’ve also had it with wasabi mayo and IT WAS AMAZING.
