Roasting Intensifies the Magnificent Flavor of this Springtime Favorite
Springtime means asparagus. Oh sure, asparagus is available in our supermarkets year round. And often it’s pretty good. But early spring brings locally grown asparagus — the freshest and most succulent of the year.
With Easter coming soon, what better vegetable to grace your table? Not only is asparagus seasonally appropriate, it combines well with the ham or lamb that many people like to serve.
Although asparagus is wonderful no matter how you cook it, I have a soft spot for Roast Asparagus. This veggie has extraordinarily good flavor to begin with, but roasting deepens and concentrates it.
Roast Asparagus tastes equally good hot from the oven or cooked ahead and served at room temperature. What’s more convenient than that?
