Our Best Asparagus Recipes

Published April 4, 2022

Sure you can get it year round at the grocery store, but now is the time to seek out what’s grown near you

The Bittman Project has called asparagus season “a big event” and it’s just about upon us. The difference between what you get at the grocery store in February versus in-season local stuff is remarkable. Fresh asparagus can be exciting, with its slightly sweet grassiness and a hint of bitterness. It’s truly a harbinger of spring.

It’s a tad early for asparagus season in the Northeast but we know you’re seeing it in Virginia and California. So today, we’re celebrating all things asparagus with recipes for roasted asparagus with crunchy parmesan topping; asparagus and sesame salad; linguine with asparagus, leeks, and new season garlic; chicken roulade with goat cheese and asparagus, and asparagus 12 ways — variations on steamed, roasted, stir-fried, and grilled.
