  • I put it in the microwave. I really like it wrapped in foil and placed on the bbq for several minutes. Either way I add a squirt of lemon juice and a bit of butter.

  • I love to wrap it in turkey bacon, pop it in the oven until the bacon is done and glaze with a light butter sauce.

  • almost like cara 124. put it on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Roast it in the oven. Asparagus farmer at the Farmer's market gave this recipe to me years ago, and my guys beg for it.

  • I trim the ends, then roll it in olive oil to make sure it's covered. Spread out on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt, and bake at 400* for 20 minutes or so. I like the tips to be slightly crunchy and the stalks to be carmelized a bit.

  • I put in it a shallow pan with about an inch of water and steam it for about 10 minutes

  • Put it in a shallow baking dish (I have an oval one that is our asparagus dish) with a little sea salt and a tablespoon of water and cover with plastic wrap and microwave for about 5 minutes. It's also good roasted and mixed into pasta (I love it with shrimp and roasted garlic cream sauce over linguini).
