Balsamic Asparagus

The theme for Monday Posts in April is Spring Vegetables.

Our favorite spring vegetables are both green and white asparagus, snow peas, spinach, artichokes, and…

I won’t be able to get to them all. But I’ll start with green asparagus.

White asparagus is preferred by most people in Europe but we are seeing more green asparagus every spring.

These are simple, easy recipes – no detailed photos, etc.

We love the first spring vegetables roasted. Watch carefully if your asparagus is very thin as it will get tender quickly. I roasted the asparagus in the photo for about 12 minutes.

  1. I’ve done the olive oil and balsamic, never thought to add soy sauce. Asparagus isn’t really showing up here yet, a bit too early, but this one will definitely be on the menu.
