Roasted Aspargus with Green Garlic

Spring has started in the SF Bay Area, sure it’s still rainy and cool, but this weekends visit to the Hayward Farmers Market had me jumping up and down for joy – the very first green garlic and asparagus of the season had appeared!

So when trying to decide what to cook for dinner I combined my two early spring treats into one wonderful roasted treat.

Ingredients:

1 bunch of asparagus, tough ends snapped off

3 -4 green garlic bulbs, white and light green parts, chopped

2 tsp olive oil

Salt

Preheat oven to 425.

Toss green garlic, asparagus , salt and olive oil together in a roasting pan.

Cook for 15 – 20 minutes until the asparagus starts to brown slightly. Cooking time will vary depending on width of asparagus.

Serves 2 -4
