Well…..If I had to pick between brussel sprouts and asparagus, I think asparagus would win! If I had to pick between asparagus and juicy cheeseburger with bacon and avocado…..asparagus would not be winning anything.
I took the opportunity of the holiday to cook the asparagus I had sitting on my counter waiting for me to get the nerve to try it.
Much like brussel sprouts, I was worried that if I didn’t cook the the asparagus properly they weren’t going to get a fair shake. I would hate asparagus forever, and it would only be due to my lack of knowledge on how to cook them.
A few Google searches and I came up with pretty easy instructions. Cut them in pieces, boil them for a few minutes, coat them in oil, parmesan cheese and lemon zest.
They were actually fairly yummy! A nice fresh flavor that I didn’t expect. I could definitely see adding asparagus into my regular meal rotation. I look forward to throwing them on the grill or roasting them up in the oven.
A sentence I never though I would say, “Yes, I like asparagus”.
