Recipes of the Week: Asparagus


Parmesan Roasted Asparagus


This quick and easy recipe for roasted Parmesan asparagus topped with a squeeze of lemon needs only 5 ingredients.
Ingredients:
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 fresh lemon, cut into wedges
Directions:
1. Place oven rack on top third of oven.
2. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).
3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add asparagus, cover, and steam until barely tender, 2 to 4 minutes depending on thickness.
4. Place steamed asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet.
5. Drizzle with olive oil and roll asparagus spears in oil until they are coated.
6. Sprinkle with ground black pepper and Parmesan cheese.
7. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Do not turn or shake asparagus.
8. Serve with lemon wedges.

Spring Asparagus Salad
 
This is a nice and simple cold salad that is nothing more than asparagus dressed in a Chinese-influenced vinaigrette topped with sesame seeds. It's a great way to celebrate the arrival of the asparagus crops!
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Directions:
1. Whisk together the rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and mustard. Drizzle in the peanut oil and sesame oil while whisking vigorously to emulsify. Set aside.
2. Bring a pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus to the water and cook 3 to 5 minutes until just tender, but still mostly firm. Remove and rinse under cold water to stop from cooking any further.
3. Place the asparagus in a large bowl and drizzle the dressing over the asparagus. Toss until evenly coated. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
