Roasted Garlic Herb Asparagus

When I was a kid I lived in Colorado for a time and I remember my Mom cutting fresh, wild asparagus from the side of country roads. I fell in love with asparagus way back then and still love it today. One of my absolute favorite ways of having it is steamed with hollandaise sauceĀ over it. My hubby however doesn’t like hollandaise sauce so much so I’ve had to come up with another way to prepare it so I’m not the only one eating it. I decided to try to roast it in the oven a few years ago and he loved it so this is now my go-to way of preparing it. A few things to know about asparagus. In my opinion, the skinnier ones are better. I love petite asparagus for the flavor but I also love it because it isn’t as stalky as fatter asparagus is. There aren’t many people that want to eat something that has the consistency and feel of a tree. When preparing asparagus you want to make sure that you cut the ends of up until you hit a soft spot. My method is to hold a knife in one had and the asparagus in the other. I will start by trying to cut as close to the end as I can and if the knife doesn’t easily cut through the asparagus then I will move up in (roughly) 1/4 inch increments until the knife cuts through it fairly easily. This will ensure that you’ve cut the stalky part off and what remains will be a nice crisp consistency instead of like eating a twig. This is a family favorite! I hope your family enjoys it as well. What other ways do you like to prepare asparagus?
