While perusing my local vegetable market in search of inspiration for dinner this week, I did a double take when I spotted a new ‘Product of Ontario’ sign.
It was perched atop a big carton of fat, fresh asparagus.
I actually “EEEEE”d and clapped with delight. The guy looking trough the leeks next to me quietly side stepped away.
Now, I realize in my last post I mentioned there’s nothing like firing up the bbq to kick off warm weather season.
Come spring, there’s nothing like getting your fill of local asparagus.
Fresh asparagus will be bright green with tightly closed and compact tips. It can be eaten cooked as well as raw if it’s sliced or shaved finely, like in our Asparagus and Zucchini Salad.
Finding fat asparagus is your best bet if you’re planning on shaving it.Pizza and asparagus? You betcha. You can be ambitious and make your own pizza dough, or purchase pre-made dough or crust for an ultra quick appetizer or meal.This ‘white pizza’ doesn’t even call for sauce. One less step to delicious town.
I would love to hear what your favourite unconventional pizza toppings are.
