Asparagus two ways

It's asparagus season in Ontario! So exciting! I pretty much eat it every single day for a month, or until the growing season ends. I mostly eat it roasted, but I do like it steamed as well, on pizza (forgot to take a picture) or in a soup. Here's a pic of roasted asparagus with 'Spicy Thai Mung Bean Burgers' from this recipe: http://www.nourishingmeals.com/2010/02/spicy-thai-mung-bean-burgers.html. It's a pretty good recipe. Sort of mushy burgers, but tasty. I think I overcooked my mung beans, anyway- I'd never cooked them before.


And now for a less oily way to make asparagus - soup! I used this recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Cream-of-Asparagus-Soup-vegan-18803, but I added about a cup of white kidney beans for protein, iron and creaminess. And a potato. It was made even more fabulous by grated smoked cheddar flavoured vegan cheese.

What delicious meals! I love asparagus, but unfortunately it is very hard, almost impossible, to find good quality asparagus in this part of the world. It is one of the things I miss most, and when I do find it, I savor it!

I love asparagus. Funny because only about 2 years ago I hated it - or thought I did.

Yum, that looks delicious N! :)

I've been really enjoying bbq'd/grilled asparagus, the ends get crispy and quite yummy.
