Rain or shine, in the oven or on the BBQ, any occasion is a good one to cook our local asparagus! Without further ado, and because Quebec asparagus is showing its face in the fields these days, here are my picks for baking asparagus and concocting BBQ asparagus recipes.

Green BBQ pizza with asparagus, ricotta and leeks (in French)

I love cooking on the BBQ. Grilling adds a unique and sublime flavour to anything compared to conventional oven cooking. In my recent article on BBQ recipes for starters, main courses and side dishes, I talked about “flavour” and “grilling”; this is precisely what I mean! Apart from the asparagus, which doesn’t cook directly on the BBQ, this entire pizza is cooked on the grill. And from your first bite, you’ll be able to taste the sublime flavour of the asparagus and the BBQ in the asparagus ricotta. It’s so good you’ll probably want to make this BBQ pizza every day during the Quebec asparagus season!

BBQ asparagus and leek quiche

Have you ever thought of doing a BBQ brunch? I’ve already tried it, and it was a success! Since BBQ asparagus is in the spotlight, and I also love leeks, here’s a recipe that showcases them to their best advantage. In this quiche recipe, the Greek yogurt in the preparation adds volume and a smooth, bewitching texture to the quiche, while the BBQ asparagus and leeks add a touch of crunch to every bite.

1001 recipes (or almost) to enjoy asparagus in the oven or on the BBQ

For me, the month of May is exceptional for several reasons. Firstly, the leek shoots in the Cultures de chez nous greenhouses in Sainte-Brigitte-des-Saults are off to continue their growth in the fields, just as I did a few years ago. Secondly, Quebec asparagus season is starting, and I’ve been looking forward to eating it for a long time! Third, Quebec asparagus (especially from Cultures de chez nous 😉) is the best in the world.

So that you too can enjoy Quebec asparagus until the end of June, when we’ll be saying, “See you next time,” I’ve included a host of other asparagus recipe articles:
