Meatless Monday Asparagus Pee and Related Recipes

by - Monday, April 23, 2018

Every week we are exploring vegetarian meals for meat eaters. Cooking with seasonal vegetables can seem really limiting at first, but the possibilities are endless. And it is worth it. Just cutting one day of meat eating out of our diet can keep thousands of pounds of CO2 out of the atmosphere a year. No seriously, it's that big a deal. Plus, it's a great opportunity to have some new adventures and try new things. Just another way to take care of the planet AND make life a little bit better!

Asparagus! Did you know that all asparagus pee smells the same, and it just depends on your genes whether you smell it as bad or not? It's hard to follow a thought as deep as that, so let's look at some fun vegetarian recipes!

Pork and asparagus stir fry is one of my favorite meals we make, but we have lately been switching pork out for mushrooms (or, if you want a little meat, we have done half the meat with mushrooms to fill in). This recipe from The Garden Grazer looks pretty close to what we do, which I love.
