best asparagus tart recipe

Asparagus Summer Tart

This recipe from Food is simple, delicious and it's just perfect for the warming weather. We can picture it now - sipping a glass of crisp white wine in the soft, summer-like air, in the tucking into huge green salads and slices of this tart. Our recommendation? Make this tart as often as you can while asparagus is in season (plus do the wine bit, too). 

Asparagus and Tomato Frittata Slice

We're a big fan of frittatas at The Happy Foodie. They're so versatile - eat the hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This recipe from The Foodie Teen is perfect for busy days when your brain needs a bit of a boost.

Asparagus pizza recipe

Shaved Asparagus Pizza

Like Deb, we believe if you love something, you should probably put it on a pizza (this is limited to food, of course, do NOT put a loved one on a pizza). This recipe from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is a wonderful way to celebrate the asparagus season and pizza in general, so obviously it's one of our very favourites.
