This time of year is perfect for asparagus. You can usually find good quality asparagus in the stores for a good price during the early spring. Several in my family love asparagus. In fact my daughter picked it as part of her birthday meal last week. Yes, kids can like and want vegetables like asparagus.
There are lots of ways to cook asparagus. You can steam it, fry it, or bake it. But recently our favorite way to cook it is to roast it. You basically cook it at a really high heat.
Here is what I do.
I wash it and cut off the ends.
Place it on a cookie sheet or shallow pan. I use my stoneware pan.
I drizzle it with a couple of teaspoons of olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt.
Then I bake it at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes. You want it to be done but not too done. And yes I know this is a high heat, but that is the roasting part. It really is good.
Now that you know how I cook it, how do you cook it? Or do you even like it?
