Asparagus Patties with Lemon Parmesan Corn


“Growing up, my mother made a recipe similar to this one using canned asparagus—typically, it was for a family gathering or special occasion,” explains Marie Valdes. “For this contest, I set out to re-create the forgotten family favorite but used fresh asparagus, and then added my own twist with the lemon Parmesan corn, which I thought was a great accompaniment to the asparagus.”
