Can you believe I was 24 years old before I ever tried asparagus? I know, me either. I don’t think it was on the most popular vegetable list at the grocery store in my hometown. Because believe me, we ate lots of veggies at my house growing up. Asparagus just didn’t happen to be one of them.
I was visiting a friend and her new husband in Minneapolis when she made it as part of our dinner. It was simply steamed with a bit of salt and pepper. Delicious. I couldn’t get over how I had missed out on such a tasty veggie. I’ve been finding all kinds of ways to make it ever since.
