Sauteed Asparagus

One of the recipes I get asked about often is my sauteed asparagus.  This is one of those easy recipes that looks fantastic on a plate and tastes even better, especially when asparagus is at its peak.  If you are wondering asparagus is generally a spring vegetable.  It is in season from around April to June.

Which, by the way, eating vegetables in season is one of the ways you can eat natural (or organically) on a budget.  If you purchase vegetables in season you will get a much better (read: tastier) product as well as a cheaper price (since they are more readily available).  To read more about when vegetables are in season, read the post HERE.  By the way, asparagus is one of those items you can purchase conventionally (not organically) because they are considered “clean.” In other words they don’t have the pesticides that many other fruits and veggies do.  So, save your money here and use that money to purchase something else on the “dirty dozen” list.

Asparagus is by far one of my favorite green vegetables and cooking it this way makes it a favorite of everyone at my house.  I always look forward to the short months that it is in season and we eat it at least once (if not twice a week) during these months.  Another bonus: it is super easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of prep or extra ingredients to make it delicious!

  1. I would love a good asparagus soup recipe. I have been saving the bottoms for soup, but don’t have a recipe.
