Roasted asparagus is the perfect spring side dish for any meal. Here are our favorite ways to bring out the best in these tasty, tender stalks.
Now that our six children are grown, they’ve started sharing recipes with me—and I love it. This tasty way to prepare fresh asparagus —by roasting the spears, then serving them with a Dijon dressing at room temperature—came from our daughter. —Anna Kreymborg, Louisville, Kentucky
No vegetable says spring quite like asparagus. In this recipe, we combine pretty green spears with leeks. Crushed red pepper adds a bit of zest.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I have a habit of buying too much asparagus when it’s in season, but it doesn’t go to waste! I toss the spears with cherry tomatoes and goat cheese for this side. Be sure to use good quality goat cheese because it makes all the difference.—Holly Battiste, Barrington, New Jersey
