    Bought asparagus today. Try putting the raw, thin spears on your vegetable platter and serve with your favorite dip., - 5/1/2011   7:25:39 PM

    I love asparagus. My favorite way: salt, pepper, a drizzle of olive oil and stuck under the broiler for just a couple of minutes. - 4/21/2011   8:22:36 PM

    Hubby and I are both fans of Asparagus. We typically eat it roasted, steamed or marinated! Since it is currently in season these recipes are perfectly timed! Will be trying several of these recipes and post reviews afterwards. - 4/7/2011   2:14:03 PM

    Urine smells different after eating asparagus because, in the process of digestion, a metabolite is produced. It is the metabolite that causes the distinctive smell of the urine. Simply put, a metabolite is a compound your body produces as it breaks down a food. The smell is normal, if a bit unpleasant. - 4/7/2011   10:42:27 AM

    Yum yum. Love asparagus and eat it as often as possible and in many ways when it's in season and cheap. Like the recipes given as well; we do variations of most of these. My hubby used to wok asparagus and chicken together with a little sesame oil and spices and serve with rice. - 4/7/2011   10:11:30 AM

    I agree with LILFATGIRL28358. I certainly like to know why is that the urine smells so, bad after eating asparagus. - 4/7/2011   9:26:11 AM

    I love asparagus and can't wait to try some of these. I usually just steam the fresh stalks and spritz it with a bit of "I Can't Believe it's Not Butter" and sprinkle with some grated parmesan cheese or steam it and add it to some herbed brown rice. Will be nice to have some new things to try!!! - 4/7/2011   9:06:03 AM

    None, asparagus is to expensive for my family. I never buy it.
    I laugh because when I was growing up on our farm, we had two bushes where my mother cut off fresh asparagus and I ate so much of it that I certainly don't miss it now. She called it a "weed." - 4/7/2011   12:39:53 AM
