Asparagus Pesto and Radish Open-Faced Sandwich

Asparagus Pesto and Radish Open-Faced Sandwich

My first contribution to Greatist went up this week, and it’s a real spring treat. Sure, asparagus may still feel like a novelty at this early point in the season, but it won’t be long until plain ol’ roasted spears begin to lose their excitement. When that point hits, Asparagus Pesto is here to save the day (and save you from wasting any of this vibrant green veggie)!

Asparagus Pesto and Radish Open-Faced SandwichAsparagus has a robust two month growing period, within which new spears can shoot up to 6-10 inches tall in just one day. I.e., if you have a garden equipped with asparagus, there will be tons of it. If you don’t, the farmer’s market won’t be running out anytime soon.

To keep things fresh, have options like this creamy vegan sandwich spread on hand. The slightly sweet, earthy spread goes perfect with peppery radishes and a hearty, crusty bread. Feel free to throw an egg on top, if that’s your style.
