I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of asparagus until I made this Asparagus Quiche or my Asparagus Stir Fry.

Somehow, before that, I thought of asparagus as something bland, nothing that I would be interested in.

But whenever I make an asparagus recipe now,  you can count on amazing food with a lot of flavor, great texture. Something that you come back to again, so let’s enjoy together.
