These 31 asparagus recipes run the gamut for any time of day and occasion. Make these easy asparagus recipes any time of the year.
Asparagus is one of my favorite green veggies. It’s so good for you too. Asparagus is a great source of folic acid, potassium, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals. Truth be told I love it so much I’ll eat it year-round, but it’s always best when it’s in season. Come spring, I sneak it into my eggs for breakfast, salads for lunch, and pastas or stir-fries for dinner. I can’t get enough of its crisp-tender texture and fresh flavor.
From egg dishes and springy salads to easy dinner dishes, I’m sharing 31 delicious asparagus recipes for any time of day.

How to Make THE BEST Grilled Asparagus
Tender and sweet, grilled asparagus is the perfect healthy 15-minute side dish for any meal. Use thicker asparagus spears for easy grilling.
- 1 pound asparagus , (choose thick spears)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- lemon wedges , if desired
Preheat the grill to medium heat, about 350° to 400°F, and brush the grill grates clean.
Remove the woody ends of the asparagus by snapping the ends off. Bend each stalk gently about 2/3 of the way down the stalk until it naturally breaks where the woody part begins. If desired, use a knife to trim the ends of the stalks to tidy up the cuts. Discard the ends.
Place the asparagus spears in a shallow bowl or on a platter or baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss the spears with your hands to coat. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss again.
Place the asparagus across the grill grates perpendicular to the bars. Grill with the lid closed for 6 to 10 minutes or until the spears are tender and crisp. Use tongs to roll the spears for even grill marks.
Transfer to a platter and if desired, drizzle with more olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Can be served warm or at room temperature.
