Stir-fried asparagus -- a simple spring side dish

(Photo from Taste of Home)
 I love asparagus!  It is one of my very favorite vegetables, especially in spring.  Recently I tried this recipe:  Stir-Fried Asparagus from an older Country Woman magazine.  We liked this side dish a lot.  It was quick and easy to make, and very flavorful.  I left out the lemon rind because I didn't want to take the time to grate it, but the flavor was still great.  I had purchased shredded parmesan to sprinkle on top, but forgot to do so and it was delicious even without that garnish.  Maybe your family would enjoy this side dish too.  It is going to become one of my go-to recipes for asparagus!


  1. Thanks for dropping by Nanaland today Mrs T. I still cannot respond to comments so I will thank you here! That little sandwich maker is great. Loving all the yummy recipes you have been sharing with us!! It is nice to enjoy fresh vegetables and fruits in the summertime.

  2. You are welcome, Arlene! I always enjoy a visit to Nanaland. Just wish you could reply to comments! That must be so frustrating. Hope it doesn't happen to me, but I suppose it's possible. Blogger seems to change things around quite often.

    Hope you enjoy the asparagus recipe if you try it. I am trying a new pork chop recipe for my dad's supper this evening. If it turns out well I will share it eventually. I have a long list of recipes I want to share, but it seems to take me awhile to get around to posting them!

  3. My all time summer favorite!

  4. I haven't ever cooked asparagus before and recently discovered that my oldest likes it. I'm glad to see one of your tried and true recipes for it so now maybe I will have the courage to give it a try.

    I delighted over discovering your comment yesterday evening when I returned home. Thank you, Mrs. T! You brightened me!

  5. It surely is delicious, isn't it? I love asparagus!

  6. Mrs. Smith --

    Thanks so much for stopping in! I hope that your family enjoys this recipe if you try it. I have another asparagus recipe you might like. It is cooked with frozen peas to make a very pretty side dish in shades of green. You can find it by clicking on "vegetables" in the label cloud.

    I enjoy your blog so much. I am so glad you decided to start blogging!

    God bless,
