Need Asparagus Recipe Help

Nothing green looked too great at the store, so I bought a few pounds of asparagus. I need a dish to serve about 10 at the seder and I'd prefer not to have just plain steamed/boiled asparagus.

I need a dish that is non-dairy and contains no hametz or kitniyot (flour, bread crumbs, beans, legumes, and the like). Any tried and true suggestions?

  1. Oven roasted for about 15-20 minutes at 400 with just a drizzle of olive oil and some lemon zest, salt and pepper is lovely.

    1. Definitely oven roasted. I drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, then place in one layer on a cookie sheet(s) and roast at 425 until just tender. Depending on the thickness of the stalks, you should start checking for doneness in less than 10 minutes. I shake the pan about halfway through (or when I check them) to turn them a bit.

      1. You absolutely cannot go wrong with roasted asparagus. If you want something that looks fancier, you could go with Asparagus Mimosa. Here is a recipe but I think it calls for cooking the asparagus too long. Myself I would probably roast it before giving it the mimosa treatment.

        1. If you have the time to look through a bunch of them, here is where I go...

          1. Roasted is good. If possible, I'd suggest firing up the grill, drizzle w/ olive oil, and chargrill. salt when taken off the grill. They might look black, but its flavor flavor flavor. Can be re-warmed nicely.
