As much as we’re trying to cook seasonally, the landscape (both on our table and outside) can be pretty bleak in Minnesota in January. I am ashamed to admit that I don’t even know where these asparagus spears were grown, and I’m going to try not to think of the carbon fuels that were burned bringing them to Minnesota, but I could not resist when they were on sale (buy one, get one free) at our grocery store. They were delicious. If you haven’t tried roasting asparagus before, I highly recommend it as a pleasant diversion from the usual steaming.
