Asparagus Not Roasted

Posted by terrepruitt on December 3, 2009

Yup, AGAIN with the asparagus, but this time it is NOT roasted.  You see, my hubby gets just as tired of me cooking roasted asparagus just as you probably get tired of me blogging about it.  Well, we recently went to Coscto (is that a Bay Area thing?  There are a few just in San Jose.) and bought a few bags of asparagus.  I could eat just roast it and eat it that way, but I like to make food that my hubby will enjoy too, so I decided to try cooking it another way.

Trying to come up with something new is a little exercise in creativity. It is funny how it works out when I am just throwing stuff together and when I am just trying something out to be different it turns out that my husband LOVES it.  I never know how it is going to work out.

I put some garlic infused olive oil in a pan with some onions then cooked the ground turkey.  I decided to be totally daring and so I used some balsamic vinegar (hubby is not a fan, but Ithought I would try it).  Then I added the asparagus and I also used some smoky garlic sea salt a friend of ours brought us from Hawaii.

I cooked it all up and served it over rice.  Now, I have to honest, I really liked it, but my hubby LOVED it and it COULD be because I plated his rice, then I took two slices of Havarti and put it over the rice, THEN I put the turkey asparagus combination over that.  So the cheese melted in between thehot rice and the hot turkey.  I had a taste, his tasted pretty much like cheese.  And anything is better with Havarti because it is like butter.  I didn’t have the cheese and I felt it was great and not overpowered by cheese.

I used a package of turkey (I guess it is a pound or a little over) and probably a one and a half pounds of asparagus.

So . . . how else can I cook asparagus?
