Fresh Roasted Fresh Carrots

FRESH ROASTED FRESH CARROTS

I’ve roasted carrots many times, but not this fresh. Sweet. Natural sweetness emerges with all freshly roasted veggies, but this time, these carrots are different. Maybe because they’re organic; maybe because the tops were still fresh looking and green.

I liked carrots even as a kid. Mom peeled them, cut off ends, cut in half around the equator, then quartered them lengthwise. Boiled them in salted water, drained and slathered a big piece of margarine over the top, melting it as she laid it on. She knew how to get the food to the table hot!

Serves 5 (1 large carrot each)

PREPARING & COOKING WHITE ASPARAGUS

PREPARING AND COOKING WHITE ASPARAGUS

Although I rarely see white asparagus when out and about, I saw these while shopping at the West Side Market a few days ago. Two bunches for five dollars! Great price. I asked the vendor the best way to cook them and he said, “grill them – that’s the best way – just olive oil – put olive oil on them – grill them and they’re great – the best way”. He further said, “don’t knock them around in the bag – they break easy”.
