Canned asparagus is awful. I only eat the fresh stuff - which means it's very seasonal (it's only available in spring here).
Top 3 ways to eat asparagus:
1. Slice the stems into pieces 1-2 inches long and include in a stir fry. Get rid of the bottom 2 inches - it's usually woody and not that nice.
2. Steam it very lightly (or microwave it) - it should still be almost crisp - and eat it with hollandaise sauce (for a vegan substitute, use vegan mayonnaise with 2 tsp of unsweetened orange or lemon juice mixed through) - eat it as a side with anything else that goes well with hollandaise-type sauces eg buckwheat, kale and black beans
3. Roast it in a hot oven (400 degrees F) for 20-30 minutes and serve with a squeeze of lemon juice as a side with whatever else you're having.
If you eat eggs, it also goes really well in quiche, or you can use steamed asparagus as a filling for omlette.
