Okay, I need some help here. The local produce market advertised asparagus, and recently I saw a TV show where it said asparagus is good for the libido. I was intrigued. If only that nice young man from “The Doctors” would like to share some with me…? 🙂
Anyway, I picked up a bunch of asparagus from the store yesterday and I think what I did with it was considered broiling, though I didn’t use the broiler; I baked it at 350 for about 30 minutes, drizzled with olive oil, garlic salt, minced onion and parmesan cheese. It didn’t turn out half bad, but I think there’s a better way to do it.
I’m looking for suggestions. (Polite ones, please.) How do you cook fresh asparagus?
For the record, I didn’t end up with any “woodies”, as we used to call them; those hard ends of the asparagus that you couldn’t chew through without rodent teeth. For that reason alone, I consider last night’s dinner a win.
