ROASTED ASPARAGUS WITH CRISPY LEEKS AND CAPERS
In this supremely springy recipe, thick asparagus stalks and thinly sliced leeks are glossed with olive oil and covered in salty capers. Everything is roasted in the same pan and emerges tender and golden-edged. Capers also make an appearance in the mustard sauce served alongside, which adds a tangy, mayonnaise-like richness. You can double the recipe, if you wish, though you may have to increase the roasting time by a few minutes to make up for a more-crowded pan. Serve this on its own as a first course, or as an accompaniment to roast chicken, braised meats or seared fish. Just don't use thin asparagus: It'll cook too quickly, before the leeks have a chance to turn golden. Stick with spears that are at least 1/2 inch in diameter.

- Heat oven to 425 degrees. Put asparagus on a rimmed sheet pan and toss with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt until well coated.
- In a small bowl, stir together leeks, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Sprinkle leeks on top of asparagus, then sprinkle with capers. Roast until asparagus are tender and golden brown, about 12 to 18 minutes.
- While the asparagus stalks roast, make the mustard sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, capers and garlic. Slowly whisk in olive oil a few drops at a time to create a thick, emulsified dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Once asparagus stalks are out of the oven, squeeze a lemon wedge over it and sprinkle parsley on top. Serve with mustard sauce and more lemon wedges on the side.
LEEK-AND-ASPARAGUS CRISPY RICE
This recipe is a masterclass in how mixing textures can elevate a simple, weeknight dinner to new and delicious levels. By giving the rice a few minutes in a hot skillet to form a crackly crust, you're creating little nuggets of crunch to disperse throughout the bowl. Leeks take on a buttery quality once cooked, melting into fluffy rice and crisp-tender asparagus. Lastly, an egg-fried just until the yolk can be used as a silky sauce-becomes the crown on top of a most excellent vegetarian rice bowl.

- Heat butter and 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add leeks, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in asparagus and 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until asparagus is bright green and just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Uncover, increase heat to high, and cook until most of liquid has evaporated, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.
- Return skillet to high heat; swirl in 1 tablespoon oil. Spread rice in a single layer; cook, undisturbed, until crisp in places, about 4 minutes. Stir in leek mixture, lemon zest and juice, peas, cheese, and herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with more cheese and herbs, topped with a fried egg.
CRUNCH CRAZY ASPARAGUS SPEARS
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Prepare the asparagus by trimming off the tough woody stem.
- Set up a breading station by whipping the egg whites and mayonnaise together (the mayonnaise helps the whites stick to the asparagus). Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.
- In a separate, dish add the panko, Parmesan, Italian seasoning and paprika. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix. Dip each asparagus spear in the egg wash and then coat evenly in the seasoned panko breadcrumbs. Place the spears on a wire rack over a baking sheet and lightly drizzle with some olive oil (this will help them crisp up).
- Bake until golden and crispy, 15 to 17 minutes. Serve immediately.
CRISPY AND DELICIOUS ASPARAGUS AND POTATO TART
Filo pastry can be bought in all supermarkets now, yet it often gets forgotten about. You can usually find it in either the fresh or the frozen pastry sections. Next time you're out shopping, pick some up - everyone should keep some at home because it's wonderful to use as a base for sweet and savory tarts, or to wrap around cheese or spiced meat fillings. It goes really crunchy when cooked, so it's great with softer things. For this recipe, I've used it to make a quick open tart - perfect for a picnic or a simple lunch with a salad. You could even make individual ones and serve them as starters.

- Put your potatoes into a pan of salted boiling water and cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile blanch your asparagus in a separate pan of salted boiling water for 4 minutes, and drain in a colander.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Get an ovenproof dish - I've used many different shapes and sizes. Layer the sheets of filo pastry in the dish, brushing them with melted butter as you go and letting about 1-inch hang over the edge. You want to get the pastry about 5 layers thick. Put a clean, damp kitchen towel over the top and put aside.
- When the potatoes are done, mash them with the cheeses. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs and cream and stir into your cheesy mashed potato. Grate in the nutmeg, season well with pepper and mix together. Spread the mashed potato over the filo pastry, then bring up the sides of the filo and scrunch them together to form a rim. Take your blanched asparagus and line them up across the filling, making sure you cover it all. Brush all over with the remaining melted butter and pop into the preheated oven for around 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Allow to rest for 10 minutes. Serve just as you would a quiche for a quick lunch or supper, with a salad.

FRIED RICE WITH BACON
Crispy bacon gives this fried rice recipe a delicious difference. The sauteed leeks and onion season the rice nicely and give it an appealing look. It goes great with my mom's baked salmon. -Susan Emery Everett, Washington

RED AND BLACK RICE WITH LEEKS AND PEA TENDRILS
I made this on impulse when I found pea tendrils at the farmers' market this week, but you don't have to put aside the recipe until spring brings them to your markets - use baby spinach instead. The dish is inspired by a recipe for farro and black rice with pea tendrils from Suzanne Goin's "Sunday Suppers at Lucques."

Stir in the pea tendrils or spinach. Cook, stirring, until they wilt, about three minutes for pea tendrils and one minute for baby spinach. Season to taste. Add the thyme, the remaining olive oil and rice, and stir until the mixture is combined. Season with freshly ground pepper, adjust salt and serve.

ASPARAGUS WITH LEEKS AND NEW POTATOES
- Cut the asparagus crosswise into 1-inch lengths, keeping the tips separate from the stems; set aside. Slice the leek tops crosswise about 1/4 inch thick. Slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick rounds.
- In a skillet or saute pan that will comfortably hold all the ingredients, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and the asparagus stems. Saute, shaking the pan frequently, until the potatoes are beginning to turn golden, about 3 minutes.
- Add the leek greens and asparagus tips, a healthy pinch of salt, and a liberal grinding of pepper. Sauté, shaking the pan and tossing the ingredients frequently, until the asparagus is tender and beginning to brown a little. It should still be firm and bright green. Taste and correct the seasonings, and serve at once.
