I LOVE Asparagus

by bkhoury on March 15, 2012

I haven’t purchased asparagus since the hazy days of summer.  My kids loved it when I would throw the spears on the grill with some olive oil and sea salt.  But the other day there was a small batch of fresh asparagus in the market.  My spring fever is running hot.  I snatched up a couple bunches and brought them home for asparagus soup and everything else I could put it in. 
Will, an avid soup lover, thought I was nuts for serving this green bowl (in his mind it must be goo.)  We have a rule that you just try something and you can eat it or move on to whatever additional food I’ve prepared. We don’t make an additional meal or separate entrée for the kids. 
In typical four year old fashion, he said, “I don’t like asparagus.”
And I issued my standard line. “Ok, no problem. You don’t have to eat it.”
He did his taste test and exclaimed, “I LOVE asparagus.” I replied “ I know you do.”  And by the way, the soup is really, really good, so I suggest you try it too! 
When kids aren’t exposed to foods on a regular basis, they simply forget what they like.  It was a stark reminder that I need to be constant about feeding them a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.  And it might take more than one time to get them reacquainted to a food. 

  • I do not often try asparagus soup, though I love to eat soup pretty much. I’m inspired to make asparagus soup today by reading this stimulating post. Thanks
