Everything's Coming Up Roasted!!

Spring is in the air and to me that means it's time for spring vegetables! There are so many delicious options, but two of my favorites are artichokes and asparagus. I surveyed a group of adults from around the country, who said that some of their favorite springtime foods are:

Fruit, Salad, Strawberries, Pasta Salad, Ice Cream, Watermelon, BBQ Food, Butter Grilled Asparagus, Corn on the Cob, and Strawberry Shortcake. Yum! Is your mouth watering yet? Mine sure is. One thing I noticed is that people especially like roasted foods during the Spring and Summer months. Roasted foods are very flavorful and often colorful as well! So, I thought I would share three roasted recipes with you, including some that incorporate Spring vegetables. Enjoy!
Chili-Roasted Chick Peas look and taste delicious! When is the last time you used chick peas in your cooking? It's never too late to start! Spring is a great time for new beginnings!
Roasted Herbed Artichokes with Leeks will dazzle you! This recipe uses fresh herbs to add plenty of flavor to an already mouth-watering vegetable. But, did you know that artichokes are actually flower buds?
Sometimes, simpler IS better! Such is the case with this Roasted Asparagus recipe. And if you're looking for something a bit more complicated, try dressing it up with a bit of lemon juice and parmesan cheese!
