Over my birthday weekend we found the season's first asparagus, and it made me so happy! I just love it when asparagus comes in to season, and my favorite way to eat it is simply to wash and trim them, toss with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with salt and pepper and then roast at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or so until they are just about to wilt but still with some crunch left. Delicious!
Although I must say, I made this recipe the other day and it was quite a tasty way to enjoy asparagus as well.
I love asparagus season!
