Asparagus season in Michigan is one of my most favorite times of the year. An indication that the snow is finally gone for good (knock on wood!) and farmers market season has arrived!

Liz Slicing Asparagus

Recently I swung by my local farmers market to grab two pounds of fresh asparagus which I planned to use for both grilling and sautéing. Versatile, quick cooking and packed with nutrients, having asparagus on hand in the refrigerator means I’m never more than 10 minutes from a flavorful and delicious veggie side dish recipe.

I always have curry powder on hand so I decided to caramelize onions and garlic before sprinkling with a little curry powder. By heating the spices in the hot oil for a few seconds the spices are able to bloom and fully release their flavors.

Next, I toss in the asparagus and quickly sauté until bright green and crisp-tender.

How do I avoid mushy asparagus?

Remove it from the heat when it’s bright green and crisp-tender. If it starts to brown, you’ve overcooked it. (The same is true for broccoli and spinach btw!)
