This is the perfect recipe for fresh in season asparagus. I don’t even like asparagus and I gobble this down! This method preserves the cruch a bit, so no mushy veggies!
This is an amazingly simple recipe that has a great flavor. Go grab some fresh local asparagus at the store, it’s everywhere right now!
Credit goes to my husband for this recipe, well I think I should get some of the credit, I put asparagus on the grocery list. Right? Anyways to that recipe… delicious and easy, one special ingredient takes roasting to a whole new level.
