If You Love Asparagus,

Then get it while you can! As the weather heats up, the asparagus bolts; and, sadly the local asparagus season comes to an end.

Here are links to some of our favorite asparagus recipes - please feel free to add your favorite asparagus recipe in the comments section!

Shaved Asparagus Salad from one of our favorite foodie blogs, Smitten Kitchen! And yes, this is made with raw asparagus - delicious!

Pickled Asparagus from another favorite, and Philly based food blog, Food in Jars.

Asparagus Goat Cheese Pasta - you can get everything you need from the market (except the lemon) - Asparagus, Vera Pasta, Shellbark Hollow Goat Cheese

Asparagus Soup with Green Garlic and Eggs - this is not your standard cream of asparagus soup, but a lighter, meal in a bowl variation. The addition of farm fresh eggs pumps up the protein value.

Buttermilk Asparagus Quiche - a lighter version of heavier cream versions. I tried this recipe with Fat Cat cheese from Birchrun Hills Farm and it was delicious.

Roasted Asparagus - we love roasted asparagus - simple, perfect with everything. I used leftover roasted asparagus last night in a grilled cheese sandwich - over the top!
