One of my favorite veggies to eat in the springtime is asparagus.
I remember as a kid, though, that we only ate canned asparagus tips and only for a holiday! Boy have times changed. There is nothing like fresh asparagus which you can get in thick stalks or thin stalks, purple and white! And of course, roasting is one of the ways of bringing out it’s best flavor.
These beautiful green stalks have been drizzled with a little olive oil and seasoned with salt & pepper. They are then roasted to perfection. Honestly, I could not stop eating them right off the pan. The only thing that makes them better is the easy crème fraiche sauce that’s studded with chives and made fresh with a burst of lemon juice and lemon zest.
