ariel's making ... garlic asparagus
i love spring veggies, especially asparagus. but you gotta act quick with these babies -- they're only in the market for a few weeks! at the farmers' market this weekend i splurged on two beautiful bunches, and cooked them up for sunday dinner.
we also had this lovely fresh garlic, so i decided to marinate the asparagus with lots of garlic.
steam the asparagus for about 5-10 minutes until they easy to poke with a knife, but not mushy.
then top them with garlic, olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper, vinegar ... really anything you want!
here's the hard part -- wait! that's right ... try to wait as long as you can to eat this dish ... the longer it sits, the tastier it gets. but that's kinda hard to do, so just make a big batch, eat half, and let the other half soak 'til tomorrow.
now go marinate on that recipe ... and let me know what you think!
