Lavender Lemon Asparagus Recipe


Spring is one of our favorite times of year at the farm.  After months of dormancy, everything starts to wake up — the birds start singing again, the frogs start chirping, the grass starts growing and the lavender fields begin showing evidence of green new growth.

Everywhere new life is appearing, including tasty things like asparagus!  For spring eating, this simple (vegan) recipe will bring a fresh brightness to the table.

Step 1:

Wash and dry the asparagus.  Snap the tough end off each stalk by grasping the end and middle of the stalk and bending until it naturally breaks.  Each stalk will likely break at a slightly different point depending on the thickness of the stalk.  Don't worry if some are much shorter than others.  Snapping off the tough ends will create a much more pleasurable eating experience.  After snapping, arrange the stalks on a baking sheet.
