I just picked a bunch of asparagus from the garden. I normally just broil briefly with olive oil and salt but was hoping to cook it in another way. I have too much brown rice and wild rice in the pantry so a recipe that can use rice would be great.
Are you vegan? If not this is amazing!
I also love asparagus in risotto. You add it in the last 5-8 minutes depending on how thick the stalks are.
my whole family loves asparagus sprinkled with parmesan and wrapped in puff pastry, bake until pastry in golden.
I second risotto w/ asparagus
I like it in a grilled cheese w/ gruyere and good crusty bread
Stir fried w/ ginger, garlic and tofu (I make it with shrimp but have made it w/ tofu for my veggie niece, also with brown rice for a fried rice)
Pardon me while I
This is a really great lasagna, though I only use about 1/4 the asparagus:

We are L/O but are trying to reduce our dairy.
Askew, I made risotto over the weekend. The soup recipe you linked looks great – and I do not normally care too much for soup. I am going to try it.
HollyBearsMom, My children would like the puff pastry idea. I need to buy the pastry ready-made – I have no idea how to make puff pastry and it sounds difficult.
Nald1, frittatas are one of my favorite ways to eat asparagus but I didn’t even think of it. We haven’t made a trip to the ‘egg guy’ for quite a while and have been without eggs for too long.
SundayCrepes, I’ve never heard of putting whipping crème in lasagna but am going to try this recipe.
We’ve had less asparagus this year – normally we have too much and get sick of it and give it away. I should probably freeze some.
Thank you again for the ideas.
My favorite things to do with asparagus are crepe stuffing - I make the crepes from V'con, and top them with a lemon-dill cashew creme sauce, and with penne in a cashew alfredo sauce. I also just steam it straight up to serve alongside strawberry spaghetti, or drizzle it with vegan hollandaise, or eat it chilled with Wildwood Aioli ...
