Spring meal

Asparagus & Swiss Chard Tart

Savory tarts are often overlooked, and it’s a shame because they are such delicious showcases for fresh produce.

Asparagus Soup

This quick and easy asparagus soup uses a technique that makes soup silky without adding cream. I made it on the fly last week for my daughter’s school’s Garden Club and it was a huge hit.

Grilled Asparagus

This is a classic preparation that is always a crowd pleaser. The asparagus’s blistered skin gives it a great nuttiness while maintaining a good crisp and crunch. I have made this as a side dish for dinner parties with adults, an appetizer for families, and as a snack for the children at my daughter’s school’s Garden club, all with incredible success. Like most recipes with few ingredients, the key to this dish is getting the best possible asparagus.
