Mmmm. Asparagus.

I love asparagus. So when I opened up my brand new issue of Eating Well yesterday and found a veggie spread on asparagus, I knew I was in for a treat. I went back and forth on which one to try first, but a favorable review on the CLBB for Chile-Spiced Asparagus sent me in that direction. This was fantastic. Simply cooked asparagus tossed with a very simple spice blend and hightened with just a hint of red-wine vinegar provided a great addition to tonight's dinner. It was a definite wow for us. I chose the option of using Smoke Paprika instead of the chile powder, which we really were glad I did. We decided that we'd like to try this with grilled asparagus- only using the chile powder instead then.
