Asparagus Season!

Asparagus season is on us – and love those beautiful, green spears.  There are so many things you can do – Soup, sauce, stir fry – or just beautifully roasted.

It’s pretty simple to do.

You need the asparagus, olive oil and a lemon – that’s it!

Clean the spears by gently washing and cutting the woody bottom stems off.

Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle some olive oil and garlic salt over the spear.

Bake at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes – check them frequently.  You want them warm but with just a little crunch left!

Remove from the oven and squeeze some lemon juice over the top.  Garnish with lemon slices and serve hot!

    I rarely make asparagus. I will have to try it this way. Thanks for linking up to Creative K Kid’s Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. I’ve pinned your post to the Tasty Tuesday’s Pinterest board.

  3. We love asparagus but I have never have tired a soup. I too use lemon and sometimes I use a frying pan for cooking.

    Some of my fondest memories were in the spring driving along ditch banks with my dad or aunt and uncle to find those first fresh spears to pick, nowadays those ditch banks have been replaced, so we rely on the grocery stores for our purchase.

    Thanks for visiting to share this week on Oh My Heartsie Girl!
    Have a great week!
