4 Ideas for Asparagus

Make steamed asparagus: Place a steamer basked in a large pot filled with 1 inch water. Bring to a boil. Add 1 pound trimmed asparagus, cover and cook until crisp-tender, 2 to 6 minutes. (To chill, immediately plunge in an ice bath; pat dry with paper towels.)


Asparagus with Yogurt Dip

In a bowl, combine ½ cup plain, low-fat yogurt, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chilled Steamed Asparagus with dip.


Asparagus with Creamy Mustard Sauce

In a bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over chilled Steamed Asparagus.


Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Dividing evenly, wrap ¼ pound thinly sliced prosciutto around chilled Steamed Asparagus (use 1 slice prosciutto per spear).


Steamed Asparagus with Warm Goat Cheese

1. Slice a 5-ounce fresh goat cheese log into 4 disks; dredge in flour, then in ¼ cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs). Freeze for 15 minutes.

2. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add cheese disks; cook until browned, about 1 minute per side. Season Steamed Asparagus with salt, and serve with cheese disks and lemon wedges.
