You know it’s Spring when asparagus assaults you at the front door of your local market. I love how they’re all lined up in bundles with thick blue rubberbands waiting to be plucked. Not to be a creep or anything but I sometimes like to watch people grocery store pick out their produce. It’s always so sweet when I see older men pick up a bundle of asparagus. It makes me wonder how they will prepare them. How many years have them been enjoying asparagus? What if they just warmed up to them last year? What if they remind them of their childhood? My mind always feels happiest when I’m grocery shopping.
It’s Spring! Clovers are all over the place, daisies are coming up around our house and the leaves are about to show their sweet faces on our trees outside. SO MUCH GREEN. Why don’t we eat SO MUCH GREEN then? Both asparagus & leeks are in season right now and I’ve showcased them on a pizza.
Pesto, roasted garlic, roasted asparagus, leeks, dotted with goat cheese, microgreens have a party on top of carb heaven-PIZZA. It’s super flavorful; I couldn’t stop eating it! It’s incredible.
