Every week we pull together some great recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient.  This week, we visit asparagus!

Over 20 Ways to Eat Asparagus | Food Bloggers of Canada

Fresh, local asparagus is one of the first signs of spring in Canada and while you can get asparagus year round in the grocery stores from warmer climes, nothing beats the taste of these locally harvested stems.

You can actually grow your own asparagus - it's not hard but it does take a little planning because it's a perennial plant (meaning it will return every year in your garden!) but it's not mature enough to harvest until you've grown it for 3-4 years.  Check out our guide on how to Grow Your Own Asparagus if you love this veggie as much as we do and want to give it a go.

Asparagus season is short in Canada so make the most of it while you can with the over 20 recipe ideas here from tarts to salads to dips and more!

This collection of asparagus recipes is awesome. Now, this will be added to more collection and bookmarked it. To be honest, I was losing ideas on how to create recipes with asparagus but this list is such a savior I don’t have to think more. But for sure, I will experiment more.
