Ingredients: asparagus spears, prosciutto.

Here is another wonderful Paleo and Keto appetizer that you can make in minutes! The asparagus has a strong flavor which is complemented by the salty prosciutto, and if you leave the asparagus with a bit of a bite (al dente) it is an even better taste experience. This would even be great served as a side dish for grilled chicken or beef, or served with a fried egg for breakfast.

Mini foods are so appealing to look at and these keto frittatas are no different. They are great served warm for breakfast, can be carried to work for a tasty lunch or simply enjoyed as a snack. Children are also keen to try mini foods, so these can be a good way to get them eating more healthily. If you are not too keen on the taste of asparagus, you could use green beans instead.

If you like your homemade soup thick and creamy with a smooth texture, you will love this paleo recipe! The avocado replaces heavy cream in this dairy free recipe and helps to add to the beautiful color of the soup. If you are strict about dairy you can substitute coconut oil for the ghee.

Ingredients: asparagus, onion, garlic, veggie or chicken broth, organic unsalted butter (omit) or ghee, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice.

This is one of those low carb soup recipes that would actually be really good served cold, but if you are a traditionalist and don’t ‘do’ cold soup, you can of course serve it warm. Garnished with the asparagus tips, this makes a lovely dish to serve as an appetizer for a dinner party. If you can’t handle too much dairy you can substitute the heavy cream for some coconut cream without affecting the flavor too much.

The soup from this recipe is warming and hearty and bright with the flavors of the vegetables. This is a gluten free soup that freezes well, so you can make a load and keep it for later.

If anyone in your family has an issue with nuts, this delicious soup can be made without the nut milk and it will still taste great.

This is a low carb and keto-compliant meal that would be great for a springtime lunch for the family.

Ingredients: asparagus, olive oil, sea salt, any light tasting oil, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, lime, pecans.

This is a great versatile recipe as it doesn’t really matter how you cook the asparagus. Grilling gives it a slight smokiness, but you can steam it or roast it instead. The star of this show is definitely the vinaigrette which adds a crunch from the toasted nuts and a good kick from the sriracha to set off the flavor of the asparagus. For a paleo-friendly dish you can add honey to sweeten the vinaigrette.

Asparagus Roasted With Blood Oranges

Paleo Asparagus Recipes – Entrees

Keto Lemon Garlic Ghee Salmon with Leek Asparagus Ginger Saute

– Keto Summit

34 Paleo Asparagus Recipes Perfect for Summer!
Ingredients: salmon, ghee, garlic, lemon juice, salt, lemon, asparagus, leek, ginger powder, avocado oil or olive oil.

Salmon is one of the healthiest fish you can eat, packed with omega 3 and healthy fats, but because it is fatty, it takes strong flavors like ginger to help cut through this. This Keto dish looks so good and yet it can be ready in half an hour, so it would make an impressive meal for a dinner party or for a family lunch. Cooking the salmon in foil helps the fish to absorb all the extra flavor of the garlic and lemon too.

Keto Turkey And Vegetable Skillet

Ingredients: coconut oil, turkey breast, bacon, onion, asparagus, spinach, fresh thyme, salt, pepper.

Skillet dishes are one-pot wonders that are packed with flavor and can cut down on the washing-up! This Keto main would be perfect for a midweek dinner as it only takes a short time to make, but is a great source of protein and will satisfy any appetite. As with other Keto skillet dishes, the ingredients are up to you so feel free to change the asparagus for sprouts, or use leftover chopped meat.

– Paleo Flourish

34 Paleo Asparagus Recipes Perfect for Summer!
Ingredients: beef medallions, asparagus shoots, cherry tomatoes, button mushrooms, onion, parsley, fresh ginger, coconut oil, salt.

It is always a good idea to season steak first before you cook it, then the action of cooking helps infuse the steak with the flavors. There is a freshness to the sauté from the asparagus and parsley which complements the beef really well. This is a simple paleo recipe that lets you emphasize the flavor of the beef. If you don’t have button mushrooms then just use whatever ones you have.

Sausage, Leek And Asparagus Dill Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients: breakfast sausage, leek, asparagus, eggs, coconut milk or almond milk, dill, garlic powder, salt, pepper, coconut oil.

Breakfast casseroles are the perfect paleo way to start a busy day as they are filling and nutritious and can keep you going right through the morning. Don’t worry if you don’t have asparagus or it’s out of season, just use any other vegetable you have to hand! It makes a big difference to add in the garlic powder as it goes so well with leeks.

Asparagus Bisque With Cayenne And Lime

With a bit of heat from the cayenne and a zing from the lime to bring out the flavor of the asparagus, this delicious paleo spring soup tastes amazing and makes a wonderful appetizer for a dinner party. Although this is a thick soup it is quite light and won’t fill you too much. As this is a dairy free recipe it freezes well, so you can take advantage of the short growing season of the asparagus.

This low carb crustless quiche is full of flavor from the asparagus and onions, which take on a sweetness as they caramelize, giving the quiche a fantastic taste! The quiche also uses shredded zucchini, so when you are preparing it, try to squeeze out as much liquid as possible to avoid the quiche being soggy.

Ingredients: salmon, asparagus, garlic infused olive oil, sea salt, pepper, whole grain mustard, lemon.

Here is another great example of how salmon easily takes on the strong flavor of a topping – in this case grain mustard.

Ingredients: onions, arrowroot, almond meal, avocado oil, chicken broth, baby bellas, celery stalk, ghee or organic butter (omit), parsnip, sherry, sea salt, pepper, asparagus, coconut milk.

Based on the classic green bean casserole that we all look forward to at Thanksgiving, this paleo recipe uses asparagus instead, and a homemade mushroom soup for the sauce. Then the whole dish is topped with crispy onions to add extra flavor and texture to this side. I have actually used this as a lunch topped with some crispy bacon slices.

Ingredients: bone marrow, salt, pepper, asparagus, bacon, onion.

Bone marrow has been eaten around the world for centuries – back in Medieval times they ate it with a long narrow spoon and they believed it held health-giving properties. Nowadays it is not as common, but if you want to try it this low carb recipe is where to start! Most people suggest serving it with lemon juice to make it more palatable, but I find it goes well with the fresh taste of asparagus.

Paleo Halibut Lemon Piccata Asparagus Salad

– I Heart Umami

Ingredients: halibut or cod, ghee, avocado oil, almond flour, salt, pepper, chicken stock, lemon, capers, parsley, asparagus, olive oil.

Although this is a really quick and easy paleo meal to make, it looks so impressive and would be great to serve when you are entertaining as you won’t need to spend hours in the kitchen. If you can’t get halibut where you are then you can use cod or any other meaty white fish. The asparagus, lemon and capers really bring the flavor of the fish to the next level.

Stir-fried dishes can be a great source of good nutrition as you are keeping the flavors clean and fresh. The sauce in this paleo recipe has a Chinese influence thanks to the garlic and coconut aminos, and can be thickened with arrowroot if you like it. This is an adaptable recipe since you can use other meats instead of pork, or if you want a speedier meal you can use shrimp.

Shaved Asparagus, Blackberry And Seared Duck Breast Salad

– Slim Palate

 

Ingredients: duck breast, ghee, asparagus, blackberries, salt and pepper, virgin olive oil, lemon, dijon mustard, garlic.

This paleo recipe is a great example of how duck and fruit work well together as the tartness of the berries cuts through the fattiness of the duck breast. And when you serve it on a bed of shaved raw asparagus, the fresh taste of the vegetable complements the flavors of the meat and sauce. I don’t like to add any cheese to this dish, but you can if you tolerate dairy.

Parchment Paper Baked Salmon with Asparagus Lemon and Dill

Ingredients: asparagus, salmon, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, dill sprigs, lemon.

Here is another low carb recipe that uses simple seasonings to let the flavor of the fish shine through. Dill is a traditional partner for salmon and it adds a subtle aniseed flavor. Cooking fish in parchment helps to keep it so moist and juicy and seals in all the flavor. This would be a very impressive meal for friends, especially if you serve the parchment parcels on the table and allow the guests to reveal their meal.

Ingredients: egg yolks, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, algae oil, ginger, tamari, honey, apple cider vinegar, black pepper, asparagus, lemon pepper, coconut sugar or sugar of choice, fresh salmon.

This is another lovely low carb dish that will impress family and friends! Salmon is the perfect platform for dressings or toppings and the ginger in this dressing adds a touch of warmth, complemented by the sweetness of the honey. When grilling the asparagus, try to make sure the spears are in one layer and not overlapping so that they cook more evenly, and it helps if they are all roughly the same thickness.
