Asparagus has a very short season — about 3 weeks! Of course, we now import asparagus from abroad and are able to grow asparagus out of season. But the thin, tender, flavorful asparagus that we all know and love is really only grown in April (give or take a few weeks depending on where you live). So take advantage while you can.
Need an easy recipe using asparagus? Steam it for 4-5 minutes, toss with a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper and some baby arugula. Fry an egg in a little olive oil and serve over the veggies with some shavings of Pecorino or Parmesan cheese. This works well for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
