Description

A quick and flavorful entree, you simply must try this recipe for Baked Asparagus. Featuring white asparagus, the underground counterpart to our favorite green stalk, this vegetable dish makes a savory side. Baked in a creamy dijon mustard sauce, these white asparagus stalks are full of bright and savory flavor. This makes a great side dish accompaniment to grilled meat or fish. Green asparagus can be substitute for white asparagus, although we recommend using white asparagus if you can find it.
