I love this time of year. Asparagus season, green spears, and lovely fat white spears.
One of my favorite ways to prepare this tender veg, is to just grill them. Brush with a nice olive oil and grill till tender. If you don't have a BBQ, roast them in the oven. Finish off with a little Pine Nut oil and some Fleur de Sel.
To me, this is a much more flavorful way to enjoy spring at its best.
