>New(ish) food: Purple Asparagus


Raw Purple Asparagus

Yup. I found it at Whole Foods and had to pick it up. and with a name like Purple Haze Asparagus, how could I resist?

It tastes just like green asparagus (though maybe a little bit sweeter), and it actually turns green(er) when you cook it.

 Steamed purple asparagus

I threw it on mini pizzas last night for dinner.

 Pizza Ingredients:
1 Sandwich Thin “bun”
Pizza Sauce
Daiya Cheeze (I used “mozzerella”)
Purple Asparagus
1 Clove Garlic

Chop asparagus into 1inch chunks. sautee with crushed garlic until nearly cooked through.

Spread sauce on pizza. Sprinkle with cheeze. Top with asparagus/garlic. Add extra cheeze if you’re so inclined.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.

Dinner: corn, steamed purple asparagus, mini pizza. There were some
collard greens involved, but I ate them before they made it to the plate.
