I’m always looking for ways to make vegetables more exciting, hoping to entice my kids and husband into not only eating them, but enjoying them. My latest attempt was to dress up asparagus and it was quite successful.
1 bunch asparagus
1/4 cup light sour cream
1 1/2 tsp mustard (I used a ground mustard, but a Dijon would also work)
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper
Place asparagus on parchment (see Technique page for instructions). Mix other ingredients in a small bowl or custard cup and spread over asparagus. Fold the parchment and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
I really liked this. It was light but had lots of flavor and made the asparagus taste like something new and exciting!
