Again With the Asparagus

Posted by terrepruitt on June 11, 2009

Dance Exercies, Nia, Nia Campbell, Campbell Nia, Nia classes in Campbell, evening Nia, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia,Ok, you might know that I love asparagus.  And I love it roasted.  Well, even though we live in San Jose and seems like we can get great fruits and veggies all year round sometimes we buy asparagus and it is huge.  Usually when it is that big in order to get to the good stuff you basically have to cut off a lot of it.  Otherwise you are left with really woodsy-impossible-to-chew asparagus.  Well, I don’t wanna give up that much of my yummy veggie, so I peel it.  I cut off a little bit—like I normally would and then I peel the bottom portion.  This does a few things:

1) it enables me to eat more of the vegetable,

2) it gets rid of the hard to chew part,

3) it reveals the soft insides of the stalk

Yay! I don’t have to get rid of half my asparagus.

Yes, I know that I am getting rid of the green, but I leave the top portion.  You can try it yourself and see what works for you.  Of course, you don’t have to be having roasted asparagus for this to work out, you can do it with whatever method you best enjoy your asparagus.

    Mike and I love asparagus too. Love all the things I can do it. Recently I made an Asparagus stir fry with ginger and Kecap Manis, which you can get at an Asian Market, especially if they carry Indonesian stuff. It’s a sweet soy sauce that is so delicious! Really thick tho.

    Add a bit of onion, cut-up some large pieces of ginger,Ginger is to be taken out after cooked. 3-4 tablespoons of Kecap Manis and maybe a little bit of canola oil. Yum!!!

    If you like it spicy, I’ve added 2 tablespoons of Sambal Oelek, which adds about the right amount of spice.

    Love Asparagus! Yum Yum Yum

    Great advice! I love asparagus too, and I always feel like I’ve stumbled on treasure when I find a recipe on someone’s blog. Woo-hoo!

    And the title of this post? Best blog title I’ve read all day. Including my own!


    • I hate wasting the whole bottom poriton of the asparagus, so breaking it where it bends, like you are supposed to do, doesn’t work for me. And when it is huge, I get out my peeler. It works! Well, I already wrote an asparagus blog and there really isn’t much to say, so again with it, ya know. I always want to blog about it because I eat it almost every night.

      And, yeaaah, super bonus that there is a recipe on here—and I didn’t even have to write it or nothing. Cooool. Yay, Tina, huh?


Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
