THE THREE WAY ASPARAGUSAuthor: Lily Mazzarella

In a rush? Prep once and be done with these recipes and enjoy three different takes on asparagus throughout the week!

THE ORIGINAL: IN-THE-RAW SHAVED ASPARAGUS SALAD

Ingredients

1-2 bundle of thin asparagus, bottom end trimmed (start with enough to last for several meals if doing all three recipes)
Extra virgin olive oil - the best you can afford (check out Skinny on Olive Oil on our blog)
1 lemon
Nutritional Yeast
Pink Himalayan salt & pepper

The asparagus in this recipe will be the base for the following iterations, so be sure to start with enough to last several days.

Instructions

Wash asparagus and use vegetable peeler to shave into ribbons. Separate out the amount you wish to eat in this dish -- store the rest in the fridge. Toss ribbons in extra virgin olive oil, lemon and season with salt and pepper. Top with nutritional yeast for a boost of B-vitamin "cheesiness." Viola! Raw asparagus salad ready to go!

TRANSFORMATION 1: CHARRED ASPARAGUS WITH GREEN DELUGE DETOX SAUCE & TOASTED ALMONDS

New Ingredients 

Slivered almonds
Green Deluge Detox Sauce (see recipe here)
Coconut oil

Directions

For a quick side dish, heat a medium, heavy skillet (not nonstick) over high heat for 2 minutes.
Coat the pan with coconut oil. Once nice and hot, toss in the rest of those pre-shaved asparagus ribbons. Shake into a single layer and cook without stirring until lightly charred (about 2 minutes).
Transfer asparagus to a glass bowl. Add almonds to the hot skillet and roast until slightly golden.
Mix almonds and asparagus, squeeze with lemon juice and add a dollop of Green Deluge Detox Sauce for extra flavor.

Eat what you wish and save the rest for tomorrow's incarnation!

TRANSFORMATION 2: NUTS ABOUT ASPARAGUS SOUP

Haven't had enough asparagus? 

New Ingredient

HOMEMADE DETOX BROTH (see recipe here)

Directions

Take last night's Charred Asparagus leftovers (almonds and all), add to a pot with Detox Broth and simmer for 10 minutes.
Allow to slightly cool and blend for a creamy, super greens soup.
Add extra Green Deluge Sauce and lemon juice for extra flavor as needed.
