Plated + Served: Asparagus with Golden Lemony Garlic Breadcrumbs


Springtime means our long wait is over. Asparagus are finally here.

Okay, it probably seems like they’re always in season because a lot of grocery stores carry them year-round (which is a little sad, because it diminishes how special they really are).

Between March and May, fresh, locally grown asparagus, bursting with their vivid grassy taste are everywhere. Green… white… purple… pick your favorite.

Buying perfect green asparagus is pretty simple, but the most important thing to look for is bright green stalks that are smooth, firm, straight and round. The tips should be compact. Click here for more buying tips.

Steaming asparagus is a great way to get this veggie on the table fast. The crunchy lemony-garlic breadcrumbs in this recipe make these asparagus even more special.

So, what are you waiting for? Get going… the asparagus are here!

    Asparagus always looks so good, but I have still yet to try it…

    I love asparagus and only buy it during the spring when it is fresh– otherwise I find it kind of tasteless (like so many other veggies that you can now get in the store anytime of the year). I love roasting it–but I have to admit, this sounds very good too.

    I love asparagus! If it’s fresh. I’ve only had green. I don’t like it from a can. 😉 Your picture looks delicious!

    I’m visiting today from Super Sunday Sync. 🙂
