Did you know: Asparagus is technically a type of grass?
Yep. It’s an extremely delicious, edible, versatile type of grass. A wonder-grass, if you will. And this month, May, is officially Asparagus month!
Anyway, because I so love this deliciously edible embodiment of spring, I have developed a few different recipes that capture its flavor the best! I also have a couple recipes brought to you by blogger friends of mine for you as well.
But first. My everyday favorite recipe.
Roast asparagus for 10-13 minutes at 400 degrees F. on a pan – bottom ends trimmed, drizzled with a little olive oil, covered in garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Top with lemon juice or add nuts if you like. It’s so beautiful in its simplicity!
