I don’t remember eating asparagus as a kid. Let me rephrase that…I don’t remember ever having asparagus on the dinner table when I was a kid. If we did, I’m certain I would have just shuffled it around on my plate and avoided eating it at all costs.
I was such a picky eater! Anything green and cooked was off limits for me. I loved raw veggies, but cooked! Yuck!!!
How long do you cook asparagus?
I roast asparagus in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.
It’s a good thing my tastes have changed! I love asparagus now. And I love most veggies, even if they are green and even when they are cooked.
