Asparagus is a versatile spring and summer vegetable that can be cooked and served in a variety of ways. But asparagus is also perfect when cooked on its own, with just a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast, broil, braise, grill, stir-fry, there’s really no end to the creative ways you can cook asparagus.
