This recipe is from Jyl Steinback’s “Supermarket Gourmet: A Busy Mom’s Healthy Cookbook that I received from Studentchef in the Spring 2009 Cookbook Swap. The recipe calls for roasted garlic which imparts a different flavor than raw garlic in this recipe. Preparation time includes time to roast thegarlic-just follow your favorite recipe for roasted garlic.
This recipe is adapted from the "Simply Down Home Cookbook' that I received from Studentchef in the Spring 2009 Cookbook Swap. It uses some of my favorite ingredients and I can not wait until late Spring when fresh, local asparagus is in season! A neighboring town, Hadley, Massachusetts is famous for its asparagus and I eat more than my fill every year!
This is the best and CREAMIEST crust-less quiche I've ever eaten and I eat a lot of quiche! I asked my friend, Michele, to share her recipe with Zaar and she was kind enough to oblige. Thanks, girlfriend! Top this yummy quiche with tinned asparagus, chopped bacon, or tinned salmon. It makes it's own "crust" as it cooks. Very nice with a green salad on the side.
My co-workers and I like to exchange recipes and cook for each other at least once a month . This is one of Georgia's favorites and it is delicious. I like to make it in May when fresh asparagus is in the roadside stands in southwest Michigan - nothing sweeter. Georgia credits this recipe to Taste of Home and Donna Lohnes of Wooster, Ohio.
This was an experiment that turned into a pleasant surprise. I started with a recipe from the Zuni Cafe Cookbook and added a few ingredients for taste and color and increased the quantity for my hungry family. It requires some chopping but comes together rather quickly and is very tasty! (Made in the Midwest with Michigan Asparagus:)
Knowing I love asparagus, my friend Pat recently made this very unusual pasta dish for my birthday. It was amazing!! The flavors of the cheese, nutmeg and asparagus blended so nicely and were enhanced by the crispy crust. It was served with a spinach and strawberry salad and frozen lemon pie...all of my favorites and a perfect combination! Pat made this ahead and reheated it in the microwave to just warm before serving. The freezing instructions from the cookbook authors are included. It is from the Joy of Pasta by Joe Famularo and Louise Imperiale.
This is a recipe from The No Salt Cookbook. Very tasty side dish that is flavorful in spite of the fact that it's low sodium. Feel free to substitute veggie broth to turn this into a fabulous vegetarian/vegan dish.
Lunch, snack, starter or side dish, every bite is heaven for an asparagus lover!! Since this is steamed it is also lower in fat which makes it even nicer. Danish Havarti Cheese is a soft cheese that has a hint taste of Swiss cheese to it, yet creamy and melts nicely. This is good for a low carb diet as well.
I made this as a side for dinner tonight--mmm!! It was very good--even better than I expected! It was creamy and comforting, and the sweetness of the asparagus perfectly complemented the saltiness of the dressing. It was fairly speedy, too--always a plus!
This cheesy strata makes a wonderful brunch dish that you can assemble the night before. You may use Ham Or Chicken in this recipe with Asparagus or Broccoli. Adapated from Better Homes & Gardens. Chill time is 2 to 24 hours not included in prep time.
