Asparagus is not just for side plates!! It can be the star of the show. Also, recipes you'd traditionally expect not to be vegan, can be easily made vegan. Our favourite example is our Vegan Asparagus and Pesto Quiche recipe (below) - the magic vegan ingredients are the silken tofu to replace the egg, and nutritional yeast for that cheezy flavour.
Everyone loves a pasta dish. Nice and easy for any day of the week. Asparagus lends itself very well to vegan pasta recipes. Lemon is definitely the best pairing for these simple dishes, so stock up on the citrus - lemon juice is delicious squeezed on many asparagus dishes, and is a key feature in these pasta recipes.
A key staple of a healthy diet, right? Warming, tasty and packed with veggies, soup is just a wonderful invention! Asparagus gives a gorgeous flavour to soup, and you can make a super creamy vegan asparagus soup without using dairy or cream - just check out the recipes below! Optional to drizzle with olive oil...
🥄Asparagus Side Dishes
Asparagus is great for side dishes as they can be fried, oven roasted, grilled or air fried. These vegan asparagus side dish recipes are also great for that drizzle of lemon juice or even a sprinkling of nutritional yeast for extra cheezy flavour. Don't forget the salt and black pepper too! For an option of baking or oven roasting without oil, you can buy silicone baking sheets - I use mine all the time.
If you love side dishes, then you'll also love our Vegan BBQ Side Dish round up.

For that fresh option and on a hot day, make use of these amazing vegan asparagus salad recipes. You can add in other grains to make them more substantial such as giant couscous or quinoa. I love drizzling my salads with balsamic vinegar, and even adding extra crushed garlic for more flavour! If you love salads, then also check out our Gluten Free High Protein Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad.
