I suppose we were feeling funky and carefree at the market on Sunday. Apparently, we just assumed that the early white asparagus would be as tasty and delicious as last year's green Belgian spears. Nope. They were bitter and yucky, remaining tough through a good bake time.
BUT - luckily there were Kidney Bean Beanie Babies & Twice Roasted Potatoes and Carrots to carry the meal.
I can't recommend enough doing a double roasting of veg. Twice now I have experimented with this, and I just love the texture my veg gets when I throw it in the oven for a quick 25 minute rebake after a 1 hour roast on Sunday afternoon. A little bit of olive oil, herbs and pepper was all these little veggies were looking for. They were perfectly perfect.
