All About Asparagus

There’s nothing better than in-season, fresh vegetables that are easy to cook and make the perfect side dish, easy main dish, or versatile enough to blend into pasta sauces, soups, and more! Enter, these delicious Vegan Asparagus Recipes

Asparagus is best enjoyed from the months of February to June, with April being the peak asparagus season. Look for vibrant, robust asparagus that’s firm, not wrinkly. You’ll find it in grocery stores and farmer’s markets along with other spring vegetables this time of year. 

Asparagus is available year-round for the most part, but spring asparagus is flavorful like no other! In addition to green asparagus, you can also find more interesting varietals like purple or white asparagus during this timeframe and asparagus tends to pair well with other spring flavors like spring garlic, peas, pea shoots, and fresh lemons to name a few.

I love asparagus and have a few recipes on my site that highlight the deliciousness of this veggie like this Vegan Asparagus Soup, this Vegan Asparagus Risotto, and this Asparagus Pizza! You’ll find some of them in the list below along with my favorite recipes from other food bloggers! 

How to Prep Asparagus to Cook

Wondering how to cook asparagus? You’ve got options! You can steam, sauté, oven roast, char, bake, air-fry, blanch and even enjoy raw. Cooking asparagus is super easy, and the result is tender asparagus that makes a healthy side dish or main dish and is always super tasty!

While many of these recipes will include preparation instructions, the basic prep for asparagus stalks is to trim off the tough, woody ends of the asparagus spears with a sharp knife. Make sure you wash and rinse with cool water first as well.   

Here are 20 delightfully easy asparagus recipes to try your hand at the most delicious Spring veggie. Click on the links to find instructions, ingredients, cook time, preparation, notes, and more!
