Asparagus Pea Fixed
Easily a 5* recipe for ease, health, taste and comfort. This recipe was first printed in 2017 and we have worn out the page. It has been made in various changes (bigger asparagus, litlle more honey, etc) and has never failed to satisfy. It is definite a staple in our kitchen, thank you Jenn.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a large pan over medium heat. Add butter, onion and garlic, and cook until onions are soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add the asparagus to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes. Add peas to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes. Set aside.
I made this 2x. Once for Easter and again tonight. First time I followed recipe more closely. This time I threw the garlic shallot and asparagus in 1 sheet pan and let it cook in oven. I cooked peas in butter on stop top. And threw it all into the blender w/ only 1 cup broth. I used vegan parm (cashew, nut yeast, garlic powder, salt) instead of just nutritional yeast. 1/2 a lemon. No milk. Topped w/ croutons and toasted almonds. Topped it w/ some cut up turkey bacon to make it a meal.
Asparagus Pea is an easy to grow gourmet vegetable with a unique flavour, rather like tender asparagus and fresh young peas, which has been enjoyed for centuries. The nutty, asparagus-flavoured pods are extremely popular in Asia but remain an expensive delicacy in the UK.
The small, shrubby plants produce pretty, sweet-pea-like maroon flowers which are followed by the small edible seed pods, best harvested when no more than an inch long and enjoyed steamed whole and served like asparagus with just a knob of butter and a little salt.
This summer has been a hot one, so when I am planning our dinner during the hottest of days, I often prepare a hearty salad. I am not about you, but when the temperatures are soaring over a hundred degrees day after day, I do not even have much of an appetite! This salad is perfect for hot summer days as you can prepare the vegetables and other ingredients ahead of time in the morning when the temperatures are the coolest, and then simply assemble and dress the salad just before dinner. This salad is an excellent choice for lunch, or as a light dinner entree as we enjoyed it several times this summer. Fresh asparagus is available year round, but if you are not making the salad in the spring when fresh peas are available, frozen peas work just fine.

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the olive oil in a small (about 600ml) shallow ovenproof dish. Place in the oven to heat for 2-3 mins, add the asparagus and peas to the hot oil and gently toss to coat. Return to the oven for 2 mins, then remove from the oven and crumble over the feta.
I love this quick spring pasta with peas and asparagus, and I love this time of the year! The daylight, the blooming, the birds chirping and I love the beautiful vegetables that this amazing season has to offer.
To simplify the recipe, the asparagus and the peas are quickly blanched in a pan with some of the pasta cooking water. In the last minutes of the cooking time, when the vegetable are still crisp, stir in olive oil, garlic and seasoning to maximise their flavors.
Combining asparagus with two kinds of peas, this beautiful salad captures the freshness of the new season. The vegetables are cooked briefly in boiling water, a technique known as blanching, and then plunged into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and preserve their bright green color. To tame the bite of the raw shallot, we toss it with a little vinegar and let stand for a few minutes before tossing the salad.
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Have ready a large bowl filled with ice and water. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook until bright green and just tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Using a spider or a slotted spoon, transfer the asparagus to the ice bath. Add the English peas and sugar snap peas to the boiling water and cook until bright green and just crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to the ice bath. Let the vegetables cool completely, then drain and pat dry.
4. Add the asparagus, peas and snow peas to the bowl with the shallot. Add the mint, lemon zest and a pinch each of salt and pepper and toss to combine. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and toss again. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Transfer the salad to a serving platter, garnish with pea shoots and serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.

Plus, asparagus, peas, fennel. Yum. I might have gone a little crazy with the produce drawer, but I promise that you are rewarded with a flavorful, super creamy soup as a reward. I love serving a simple soup like this with crusty bread for an informal dinner party, or as a first course. Perhaps Easter, Passover, made it through the day without commenting on the temperature? Anything that calls for a celebration seems like a good enough reason to me.
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, then add salt. Blanch the asparagus and peas for 30 seconds in the boiling water, then immediately shock the veggies by dunking them in ice water. Once cooled, drain the blanched veggies from the ice water, and refrigerate them until needed.
With the spring equinox near, I have chosen to share this Lemony Vegan Risotto with Asparagus and Peas, a celebration of the best spring vegetables (yay asparagus and peas!) in a rich and creamy risotto that your family and friends won't believe is vegan. It's the perfect accompaniment to your Easter and Mother's Day meals.
We fell in love with winged beans when we lived in China. Unfortunately, since the Asian winged bean varieties are daylight sensitive, they do not produce well in northern gardens. Seeking a suitable substitute, we happily discovered asparagus peas.
A plant that thrives in poor soil, asparagus peas trace their origins to north Africa and Mediterranean Europe. While records suggest they were cultivated in Sicily since the mid-16th century, their introduction to gardeners is credited to English botanist Phillip Miller in 1734.
Unlike climbing winged beans, asparagus peas grow in branches that spread laterally (up to 24 inches) from a central point to form a low-growing canopy that stands about 6 inches tall. Gorgeous red blossoms adorn branch edges in pairs and give way to the unique, frilly-edged, four-lobed edible pods. Highly ornamental, they fit easily into landscaping that prohibits vegetables. 041b061a72
