Old-Style Mustard and Rosemary Asparagus

(Review by Denise)

I may have mentioned before that my family loves asparagus. This is no small joy because we’re a family of five. Pleasing everyone at once is not something I expect to accomplish at mealtime. I also happen to love any excuse to eat grainy mustard. Old-Style Mustard and Rosemary Asparagus seemed like a winning pin to me! Check out the recipe from Serious Eats right here.

Let me first tell you that the photo above is not really this recipe. (Sad, I know.) I made this recipe before I upped the ante on being careful with copyright conundrums, and it happened that I had a photo on my phone of asparagus. (What? You don’t snap phone pics of food for no reason?) But truth be told, it didn’t look much different: asparagus spears laid out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. But did it taste different from plain ol’ roasted asparagus? Yep.

Verdict? Pass. Here’s my recommendation to you: If you aren’t already a card carrier for the Asparagus Fan Club, this is a great recipe to try. It is easy and it adds enough flavor to “break in” your palette for the wonders of this spring vegetable. We prefer it with just olive oil, salt and pepper. But if the ingredients appeal to you, so will the taste.
