Asparagus is such a versatile veggie. You can pan grill asparagus for breakfast, toss into a salad or throw into a stir-fry. 

I love baking asparagus. This Baked Asparagus recipe is so crazy simple and will be on the table in 15 minutes. It's a great recipe if you're entertaining or need a fast and healthy side.
