    Default Asparagus Nut Spread

    Asparagus is coming hard into season where I am, and cheap, so I always like
    this recipe when some is left over.

    8 oz cream cheese softened
    1/4 C. cooked asparagus, pureed
    2 TBS finely ground pecans or almonds

    Cream the cheese until smooth and mix with the puree. Stir in the ground
    nuts and mix well. I like to fill celery stalks with it. Simple and good.

    Thank you. I must try this. I live in an asparagus growing region
    in California and really look forward the spring asparagus crop.

    Me too. I'm in the San Joaquin Valley, home of the Asparagus Festival. :-)

    The festival is this coming weekend isn't it? It's not far from where
    I live, but I'm spending my day off Livermore at the Wente bike race
    so won't be going to the festival. I hear they have good
    entertainment lined up though. Tower of Power.

    Yes, it's this weekend. I don't go anymore, and I don't need the deep fried
    asparagus which I can't leave alone if I'm there. :-)

    I have had similar with walnuts instead of pecans/almonds - a flavour I
    really like in a lot of dishes.

    If you like seafood then crab is really nice for stuffed celery. Can't
    remember the flavourings but its basically creamed cheese, crabmeat and
    a few flavourings.

    Yes, that sounds good too.
