Creamy, flavorful Asparagus Dip is not only a beautiful color, but tastes fantastic and is super easy to make.
It’s a favorite whenever it’s served! The perfect party dip!
Have you ever had Asparagus Dip? I hadn’t until recently, I was hooked.
It’s fantastic with so many things!
We decided on this Asparagus Dip because we have about 5lbs of Asparagus to use up in the next few days, my garden is overflowing!
This dip was so incredibly good. We really only made a few adaptions, to fit our taste.
We adjusted some ingredients, and added extra garlic because we love, love garlic, and some minced onion.
It was a huge hit, and we ate it all very quickly and made a second batch later that day. I feel like from now on, I will be making double batches so I have some leftover for later.
It’s SO good with bread, crackers, veggies and more!
I promise you will find plenty of things to dip in it, and you will make it again and again. It’s quite popular at events.
Easy Asparagus Dip Recipe
- 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 14 ounces of asparagus
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons onion minced
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese grated
- Boil a pot of water. While it’s heating to boiling, clean up the end of the asparagus (I cut them off) and then boil them for 3 minutes.
- Drain them and put them in a cold water bath.
- In a blender, mix the Parmesan cheese, garlic clove, onion and softened cream cheese together until blended.
- Add the asparagus and pulse a few times to mix that in. We actually really blended it in, just because I love the green color.
- Put the asparagus dip into a heat proof dish and sprinkle with some more Parmesan cheese.
- Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbly and the top is slightly browned.
I had no idea that asparagus could be used to make a dip. What a delicious recipe.
It was fabulous and I was with you, had no clue but so good! Thanks!
That does sound like the perfect recipe for this time of year! Great pick!
Thank you Pola!
Weirdly enough, I’ve never even thought of making asparagus into a dip. Dipping it into things, yes. I’ll have to give it a try… nice choice.
I hadn’t either Stephanie and now we’ve made it a few times. Very good!!
Gorgeous! This looks super delicious and a great use for spring veggies! Such great color!
Sara, I adored the color. Such a fantastic recipe! Thanks!
I just recently made a fresh pea and spinach dip. I’ll definitely give it a try with asparagus. So pretty and fresh looking!
Mmm…. pea and spinach dip sounds pretty good too! Thanks Camilla!
This recipe sounds just perfect for spring – the asparagus is so cheap and fresh that I can’t help but buy a couple of bunches every time I’m at the store, so even though most of the time we just throw it on the grill and call it a day, I’m still always on the lookout for interesting new dishes I can prepare. Love it!
I do the same thing Isabelle, at any given night I can just grab a bunch and make it. It’s my love affair with asparagus and also avocado. It’s crazy. Thanks for the sweet words.
Nicole – First i want to say Thank you for such an awesome write up, you were so kind. Your dip looks amazing, this is one of my favorites and i make it all the time. Next time i will add some more garlic 🙂 Also your pictures are fantastic!
Ewa, sorry it took so long to respond. I had so much fun on your blog. This recipe has become an all time favorite at our house. I just love how delicious it is, and sort of addicting. Thank you so much!
It’s beautiful and would make any party all the more elegant.
That’s what I was thinking! haha Thanks Angela!
Such a beautiful colour! 🙂
Leigh, I just loved the color. 🙂 Thanks!
I never would have thought to make dip out of asparagus, but it sounds and looks amazing! Such a pretty color!
Right? Me either. When I saw it on her blog, I was like… yep that’s it. That’s the one I am doing. No questions. I’m not sorry either. We are all kinda addicted now. haha Thanks Lesa!
We’re big garlic fans too, my husband usually triples the amount of garlic in recipes. The color on this dip is incredible, and we love anything with asparagus. I’ll have to keep this in mind the next time I whip up a dip.
We’ve made it a few more times adding different ingredients but we also take the garlic up a notch. We’ve decided 3 cloves is perfect. 🙂 hahha I told you we’re addicted!
Is it necessary to bake it?? It sounds pretty good as a cold dip. Thanks
I doubt it, if you’d like to serve it chilled, I think it would be ok. The only thing I would recommend is make sure if you serve it cold, that whatever you are serving to dip in it, is sturdy, since I don’t think the dip will soften as much. Do let us know!
Hi Nicole – can I make this a day ahead of time?
Lisa, honestly I have never done it a day ahead, but you know, I can’t really see why it couldn’t be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Let me know how it works out.
My blender had a very hard time mixing such a thick spread. I had to add a tablespoon of water. Then the dip was a little bit more liquid. Also much lighter green than your picture. Tasted good !
