These vegan asparagus recipes are perfect for any season. Enjoy the crispy spears in hummus, risotto, and more.

Asparagus is a perennial vegetable that’s available in abundance in the spring when it’s in season. But with the wonders of modern agriculture, you can enjoy this distinctive vegetable at most times of the year. It’s among our favorite nutritious veggies, right up there with carrots, peas, and radishes—all of which taste great together, by the way.

Asparagus is a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s rich in potassium, fiber, and protein. The spring stalk also contains vitamins A and C, along with folate and iron.

To get you inspired, we’ve rounded up our favorite plant-based asparagus recipes on the web. This list features a wide range of dishes, from eggless quiche to dairy-free cream soup.
