Usher in Spring With Asparagus

You can find a lot of asparagus these days, in the grocery stores and the local farmers' markets. They're getting nice and thick and so versatile. You can roast them, grill them, put them in a salad or stir-fry, or make soup. And they're one of the few spring vegetables that are returning to the farmers' markets, which are going to be really fun and plentiful in the months to come. Can't wait! (BTW, the shot above is from the Berkeley Downtown Farmers' Market, which occurs every Saturday morning in the street one block east of the Berkeley Downtown BART station.)
