I often times only steam my asparagus, but when I'm craving something more refined, I use this recipe instead. They turn out absolutely perfect and delicious every time. What a flavourful and healthy side-dish this makes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful way to prepare asparagus. This is my "go to" every time! I agree on the cook time, since the size of asparagus can differ in size drastically. I use this for a side dish often. And even use it as an appetizer with a simple dip made of mayonnaise and whole grain mustard. The larger the asparagus size, the better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family hated asparagus, until this recipe...enough said! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So, I have to say, I made this recipe 1) Because it was SO easy, and 2) I wanted to TOTALLY impress my in-laws. They were TOTALLY impressed (AND, I just got a text from my mother-in-law telling me she was making it RIGHT NOW and couldn't wait to eat it!)... good food, good wine, and great company. Isn't that what life is all about? Who wants to spend the entire night in the kitchen when there's memories to be made?! AWESOME! I use this same technique for ALL my roasted veggies!
