Well, well, it’s time for this month’s Fantastical Food Fight! I didn’t participate last month, I totally had a recipe ready to go, then I completely flaked out and didn’t post it at all. Ahh! Silliness!
Anyway, I’m back and ready to go for this month’s Asparagus food fight!
I love asparagus. The kids…not so much. They’ll grudgingly eat it, but still call it “ick-sparagus” Haha – we’ll get there one of these days!
Normally, I just sauté asparagus and season it with salt and pepper, because sometimes simple is best.
For this challenge I went for oven roasted, plus garlic and fried onions! It was definitely delicious and the kids judged it “a bit better than usual” haha – tough crowd!
Check out the rest of the wonderful asparagus dishes after the recipe!
