Asparagus lovers, rejoice! Spring has arrived, and with it comes the beloved green spear. We're lucky to get our spears from Milberger Farms, a leader in organic farming down in Pueblo County. Started as a small market farm in the late 80s, Milberger now farms 400 acres, growing a diverse variety of produce on well-stewarded land using multi-year crop rotation to preserve and enrich the soil. Though the farm specializes in growing all kinds of chiles and dry beans, they also grow a wide range of other vegetables. One of the first to hit the market in the spring is their organic asparagus, and we're happy to bring it to your table. Thanks Milberger Farms!
At Spade & Spoon, we're excited to offer a mealkit featuring Milberger Farms' organic asparagus: our Spring Panzanella with Asparagus. This dish is a springy take on the famous Tuscan bread salad, featuring fresh asparagus and rapini, tender white beans, French tarragon, shaved pecorino cheese, and cubes of toasted artisan bread, all tossed with a mustardy white wine vinaigrette and served piled on tender spring greens. Trust us, it's delicious.
And if you're looking for more ways to enjoy this seasonal treat, Milberger Farms' asparagus is also perfect for scrambled eggs, creamy pasta or risotto, hollandaise sauce, grilled dishes, and so much more. But don't wait too long to indulge, as the asparagus season is short and sweet. At Spade & Spoon, we're proud to support local, quality, and fresh ingredients, and we encourage you to do the same.
So, what are you waiting for? Order your Spring Panzanella with Asparagus mealkit today, and taste the difference that locally-sourced, organic asparagus can make in your meals.
