Roasted Asparagus & Garlic Soup with Toasted Sunflower Seeds

If you haven’t taken advantage of Spring’s bounty yet with all of Lisa’s yummy asparagus recipes like the super easy frittata or barley asparagus salad, then you may want to try this creamy soup.  I’m a huge fan of bisques and this one not only made the house smell delicious while cooking (thanks to the roasted garlic!), but it also tasted pretty darn good too.

Super Smooth Hummus made from Dried Garbanzo Beans

Spring Radish and Pea Shoot Salad

Pea shoots are one of my favorite things to eat in the spring. They’re so fleeting, here one day and gone the next, so eat them while you can and enjoy. I got my shoots in today's delivery and wanted to use them immediately, but didn’t just want to gobble them down any old way.   

Baked Portobello Mushroom Fries

I have been wanting to try portobello fries for a while and, frankly, mushrooms seemed like a wise alternative to the Dairy Queen my husband suggested we have for a mid-evening snack. Go figure.
