When daffodils bloom in the Spring (tra la), I know asparagus season isn't far behind. For the six weeks each year that our local farm sells it cut fresh from the field, I will eat asparagus every day, every way: cooked, raw, shaved, chopped, steamed, sautéed, stir-fried. It's been a few years since I posted a top-ten asparagus recipe round-up here. And it's been two years since I shared 101 favorite asparagus recipes from food bloggers. So, this year I offer you my best vegetarian (meatless) asparagus recipes. Many are gluten-free, too. Let the season begin.
Roasted asparagus with Sriracha drizzle just might be the spiciest, and the most exciting, way I've ever served asparagus.
Try something new: roasted asparagus hummus, served with homemade pita chips.
For a gluten-free main course salad, I love this vegan brown rice salad with asparagus, avocado, pecans, and pesto dressing.
Asparagus and eggs go so well together. This asparagus, egg and cheese casserole is great for breakfast or brunch or supper, and it's gluten-free.
It takes only three ingredients to make this beautiful asparagus and cheese tart!
Make this asparagus, potato and herb soup when local asparagus are at their peak. The soup gets added goodness from fennel and celery.
Here's another easy two-ingredient recipe that lets the asparagus shine: roasted asparagus with manchego cheese. Naturally gluten-free, of course.
A perennial favorite, these asparagus wonton wraps with hoisin, wasabi or mustard filling never fail to impress. They're so easy to make, and even more fun to eat.
