22 asparagus recipes

In season for just eight weeks from May through June, asparagus produces some of spring and summer's most delicious dishes, but also some of their most fleeting. Our point? Make them while you can. What asparagus recipes lack in longevity, they make up for in versatility - you can roast, grill, steam and stir-fry asparagus. It's wonderful in salads, but also in soups and quiches. Eat it simply dipped in a boiled egg or hollandaise sauce. However you decide to cook it just ensure you don't overcook it; the key is in the crunch. Need some inspiration?
