Pandora Inspired Purple Tipped Asparagus Almondine

While visiting Animal Kingdom and Pandora – The World of Avatar I was motivated to create a recipe and so I did just that with my Pandora Inspired Purple Tipped Asparagus Almondine. While my trip to Disney World was #hosted #wdwresorts all of my opinions are recipe are mine and mine alone. I should mention this is Mary Washington Asparagus in honor of my daughter being accepted to the University of Mary Washington. Go Eagles. Another animal that would be appreciated on Pandora. The purple tipped asparagus reminds me of the plush forest in Pandora – The World of Avatar. The bright purple tips and lush green just scream Pandora to me. My Pandora Inspired Purpled Tipped Asparagus Almondine is a favorite even my teenagers love and it always disappears quickly. I even made sure to spread my message of conservation by serving my Purple Tipped Asparagus Almondine in a paper origami Na’vi Boat with my paper origami Direhorse standing watch.

Origami Foodie did a great video tutorial on how to make a Na’vi Boat. It is different from the one I created but, it’s cooler.

I was completely enamored by the fact that in Animal Kingdom you cannot get plastic straws because they are not eco-friendly and they could harm the animals. I have been to Animal Kingdom multiple times and never noticed they have paper straws.

Once you notice Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park has a huge conservation message, they even hire Conservation Education Presenter Interns!!! Think about that for a minute. Not only is Disney’s Animal Kingdom all about conservation but, the message is throughout the park including the materials food is served in. This is why Pandora: The World of Avatar belongs in Animal Kingdom. In “Avatar” every single thing is connected. They even thank their food for nourishment to their bodies. So, I hope this recipe reminds you of all the beautiful trees in Pandora and that it nourishes your body. Tips on traveling to Pandora: The World of Avatar coming soon.

I live between our Nation's Capital and North Carolina, love daisies, giraffes, purple, polka dots, Diet Mountain Dew, Doritos, and guns. Not necessarily in that order. I know that I’m very unoriginal and fit most cliches. I won’t try to deny it if you ask me. Ill-advised, indiscreet, and injudicious individuals infuriate I.
