Favorite vegetable alert! Sadly I only realized how awesome it was about seven years ago. Just think, I could have been loving asparagus for 21 years before that if I had just given it a shot. This should be a lesson for all you picky eaters out there. There are a lot of awesome foods but you just gotta give them a try!

When asparagus is in season I eat it all. the. time. Sometimes I feel bad because I will keep buying it and then suddenly it will hit me that this is the only vegetable I have made for weeks. Luckily Art loves asparagus too so he doesn’t mind. But to be honest he pretty much lets me pick whatever vegetable I want since he just happy he isn’t cooking.

My favorite way to eat this delectable vegetable is roasted so I thought I would share it with you all! The tops get a little crunch to their ends and you do not get sad little limp stalks like you can get if you steam asparagus. Well, if you over steam it. Which I have done before, whoops!

If you have not roasted asparagus before I strongly suggest you try it immediately. Crazy good!

Just remember that is you find super skinny asparagus it will take a lot less time to cook up versus the fat stalks you find later in the season. Remember to adjust roasting time accordingly based on size.

    This is my favorite way to cook asparagus, too! My husband refuses to eat it, but that’s okay – leaves me for me.

    i try asparagus at least once a year and it has yet to please me. roasted, steamed, smothered with cheese sauce (that was tolerable)–it’s just not the veggie for me. more for you, though! 🙂

    I just started really liking it a month ago when my Mom insisted I take a bite of hers! I haven’t tried it roasted yet. You should send this to the Showdown!

    I agree, roasting asparagus is hands-down the best way to cook it! The crunchy tops are my favorite part. 🙂
