Asparagus Stir Fry

Updated on March 31, 2011


 Many people don't know, but it takes three years for a good harvest of asparagus once it's been planted, but oh to me it's worth the weight! Luckily we can find fresh asparagus in our produce section every spring at your local food market. Asparagus is distinctively delicious and a nutritional powerhouse, weather your roasting or grilling them with a little olive oil and fresh garlic this little trick will bring out the bold flavor and sweetness, or just steam them and top with a squirt of lemon and freshly ground black pepper you will enjoy. Asparagus can be used as a simple side dish or as the basis for a soup or even a beer battered appetizer, asparagus always seems a treat to enjoy.
