Charred Asparagus

charred asparagus

I love to see a bountiful table filled with delicious foods and vivid colors, it goes back to my belief that we eat with our eyes before we eat with our mouths. Try to ensure that your menu has green, red and yellow hues by serving brightly colored dishes. This dish is simple and rustic and allows the fresh seasonal asparagus to come through as the star.
