It’s also asparagus season, so eat all you can before this lovely vegetable goes out of season. In our house, we can go through several pounds of asparagus for the five of us, just as a side vegetable. This is our favorite way to eat it.
Wash the asparagus and snap the hard ends off. Place on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and a bit of salt. Pop into a medium hot oven for about twenty minutes. The hotter the oven, the shorter the time, but all you have to do is keep an eye on it. The asparagus is done when it is bright green and crispy on the tops.
Actually, this kind of asparagus is so popular in our house that I have to divide the servings before I put the rest of the food out, just to make sure that everyone gets at least some.
