Combining the asparagus with carrots is the idea from my son, Rich, whose easy recipes have inspired me as well.

Asparagus Season in Germany

Late spring is asparagus season in Germany. Many restaurants even have a special "Spargel" menu that only has asparagus dishes on it.

White asparagus in Germany

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!

Roasting Vegetables

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.
