Why? Because it is asparagus time! Love those tender little shoots.
Garlic Roasted Asparagus
couple pounds of asparagus
3 tablespoons olive oil
couple cloves of garlic crushed
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In glass baking dish toss the asparagus and leek with the olive oil and garlic. Sprinkle with salt. Bake until spears are tender and lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. They will need to be flipped a couple of times during the baking.
