Tastes of Spring


I hated asparagus as a child and I still don't like it steamed or boiled. But I discovered that roasted asparagus is wonderful, and so I thought maybe sauteeing would be acceptable as well. It is! I sauteed asparagus in olive oil, letting the bottom brown slightly before stirring it. At the end I threw in some grape tomatoes and heated them just until a few skins popped. Mmm - sweet and good!

    I don't care for them either and we used to grow them when I was a child, I have done them in the oven 350 for 15 mins or so in olive oil and kosher salt with a hint of lemon juice...and the family loves them...will have to give this a try...I won't like it lol, but they will !!

    Thanks for the tip,
    Kathy :)

    I love to saute' asparagus. When it's in season I eat it two or three times a day from my garden! I also love to add it to scrambled eggs for breakfast. I cook the asparagus in EV olive oil & let them get a little crisp then add the egg. Yum!

  4. Thanks for the idea Lorrie. I do like roasted vegetables and had not thought of roasting Asparagus. I wonder if it is less stringy this way.
    Thanks for visiting and the word verification was interesting.
