This easy asparagus recipe, aka Spargel, is a great company dish that will find its way to your everyday menu as well. Quick to prepare, its delicious flavor is a great addition to any meal. You can make this with just asparagus or try any combination of vegetables.
Combining the asparagus with carrots is the idea from my son, Rich, whose easy recipes have inspired me as well.
Late spring is asparagus season in Germany. Many restaurants even have a special "Spargel" menu that only has asparagus dishes on it.
Most asparagus sold in Germany is the white variety. It needs to be peeled and is cooked longer than the green variety that's sold in Canada and the US.
If you want to roast the white asparagus, be careful that you don't let it brown. It'll turn bitter. The green asparagus, on the other hand, tastes absolutely delicious when browned!
Learning how to roast asparagus and other vegetables heightens the flavor as the water is evaporated away. Daily eating vegetables that are especially tasty is such an easy way to include vitamins, minerals, and fiber into the diet. This baked asparagus recipe is just one way to do so.
