Favorite vegetable alert!

Sadly I only realized how awesome it was about 16 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!

Now, 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 it’s the only vegetable I have made for weeks. Luckily Art loves asparagus too so he doesn’t mind.

Well, honestly he is just happy he isn’t cooking.

Since my favorite way to eat this vegetable is roasted it was high time I shared it with you all! Actually, I shared this with you all back in 2010 but I updated the photos last year and finally got around to re-sharing it with you. 

The thing I love most about roasted asparagus is that the tops get a little crunch to ends and you are not left with sad little limp stalks. 

You know those sad little limp stalks. They happen anytime you over steam. 

Which I have done. 

A lot. 

You know, before I got smart and started roasting it. 

Just remember that if you find super skinny asparagus it will take less time to cook versus the fat stalks you find later in the season.

Always adjust roasting time accordingly based on size.

    It doesn’t get any better than roasted veggies!! Seriously, I think I could almost live off them, especially if cheese is involved like this beauty. Perfect side dish!

    I love asparagus prepared this way! We usually have green beans for Christmas, but I just may have to change it to asparagus, instead!
