  1. I am so happy that asparagus season is here too! Your baked salmon with green asparagus looks so good!

  2. Asparagus….now that is a vegetable that is the king of vegetables! Those images look fantastic!!

  3. apsara says:

    wow, what a variety of dishes with asparagus. The soup looks delish, will try sometime.

  4. puravida says:

    Looks delicious! Thanks for the inspiration, Sophie.

  5. Every one of these are fantastic! I love white asparagus and I don’t buy it too often. I think I’ll pick some up this week…the season is in full swing!

  6. I think asparagus is my favorite spring vegetable. Lovely photos!

    always enjoy your enthusiasm πŸ™‚

  8. whatuful says:

    I love Asparagus too! haha πŸ˜€

  9. Karen says:

    You certainly have created some wonderful dishes featuring asparagus. It is such a versatile vegetable and you have showcased it well. Love the bright green color of the risotto.

  10. hotlyspiced says:

    I can see you’re definitely making the most of the asparagus season. I do the same when it’s on in Sydney. I love the look of your risotto and also the pasta. I have some of that pasta in the pantry and you’ve inspired me to cook your recipe. Although, at the moment we can only buy asparagus imported from Peru and it doesn’t look great and I do worry about how fresh it actually is, after travelling all those miles xx

      Then, you will have to wait until it is Spring back again! πŸ™‚ xxx I also buy locally, at farmer’s houses & do not buy green beans from Kenia! πŸ™‚

  11. I’m lovin’ that green oven baked risotto Sophie!! Celeste πŸ™‚

  12. Oh yes, asparagus season is one of the happiest times of year! I always buy pounds of it at a time while it’s fresh and inexpensive, gorging myself so I can manage abstaining in the scarcer months. I still have a whole lot of asparagus eating to do…!

    • Sophie33 says:

      The last years, the more expensive White asparagus, what Belgium is famous for, they keep being very expensive but I have friends who grow them in their back garden! πŸ˜‰ xxx

  13. Norma Chang says:

    Local asparagus will be at the market soon, so looking forward to this spring treat.

  14. Your asparagus ideas looks absolutely delicious πŸ˜€

  15. thehungrymum says:

    asparagus – yum! Haven’t had it in yonks but your post is making me want some ASAP πŸ™‚

  16. Liz says:

    I vote for grilled asparagus with oven baked potatoes and oven baked salmon. That is the kind of meal I want to eat, once every week! I’ve bookmarked it!

  17. I love that we travel during asparagus season so that I get to enjoy them for longer!

  18. We’ve got to enjoy it while we can, right? I just picked a big handful of asparagus from our garden this morning and I can’t wait to roast and EAT it all :-)!

  19. mmmarzipan says:

    Yay! Love asparagus πŸ™‚ Thanks for the fab recipes, Sophie! x

  20. Deena Kakaya says:

    Asparagus and spinach soup sounds lovely! X

  21. boeddhamum says:

    Hi Sophie,

    oh, I love asparagus too, they are so versatile, thank you for sharing your recipes!!
    I just was in Spain and ate a lot of the green ones, yummie!!

    btw, I recently got a lot of (fake) Sophie’s Foodie file updates(????) about BBQ-ing and Weber ads and stuff, so weird, I could not believe they were yours. Did you hear from anyone else the same story??

    XX, Linda

      Yes, When I first blogged, I was on I deleted that blog a while ago & it was a stupid idea of me. Now, someone else is using Sophie’s foodie as a blog name. So, you just have to unsubscribe to her & that is it! πŸ™‚ Yes, other fans have called me about it & I said the same to them! xxx
      I hope Spain was cool & fun! xxx

  22. Molly says:

    I love asparagus season! But for some reason I haven’t had any yet this year. I must remedy this IMMEDIATELY, maybe with your oven baked risotto. Thanks for sharing your recipes! πŸ™‚

  23. afracooking says:

    Yeahy! Spring and aspargus have arrived! I have been throwing into everything: easter sunday quich, weekend breakfast as a side with eggs, green with a stir fry!! Loving your inspiring ideas!

  24. Sooo many recipes with asparagus – I like! πŸ˜€

  25. Koko says:

    What inspiring, Spring-time recipes! I would some asparagus paired with salmon for dinner. I will keep that in mind when I go grocery shopping!! xx Hope you had a wonderful Easter!!!

  26. laurasmess says:

    I’ve never eaten white asparagus. I’ve not been able to track it down at the markets over here in Perth. Is there much difference in flavour? Looks lovely and delicate. Asparagus is one of my husband’s favourite foods. We’ve finished our season over here and now I’m craving asparagus again! Yum! Enjoy it Soph! x

    • Sophie33 says:

      Hahahahahha! White asparagus are also called the white gold, over here in Belgium! πŸ™‚
      White asparagus are more delicate in flavour & a bit more sweeter too! You can’t compare it to anything else, really! x
