Have you ever tried Creamed of Asparagus on Toast? If not, you are in for a delicious recipe full of nutty, savory, good for you comfort food!

I personally love most vegetables.

It wasn’t always that way though.

It wasn’t until I got older that I began to appreciate an asparagus dish my Grandmother made often.

julie baby nanoIt’s called “Creamed of Asparagus on Toast”.

Have you heard of it?

I’m going to assume the recipe developed out of necessity.

“Using what you have” and “saving $” all very important back in the day,

and still today.

There’s no meat in this, we always have flour/bread, and eggs are a staple.

The only ingredient you may have to find is asparagus.

My husband had never tried “Creamed of Asparagus on Toast” until I made it for him.

It’s now one of his favorites and describes it as “pure comfort food”.

The creamy, nutty, salty flavor combined with the rustic texture is killer.

I hope you go out of your comfort zone and try it.
