Roasted Asparagus with Capers & Breadcrumbs


Even though it feels cold outside, it is technically spring, and therefore it is asparagus season! Asparagus are one of my favorite vegetables and can be made so many ways – steamed, sautéed, roasted, as a soup, in salads, etc. But today, I want to share this basic recipe. It is exactly what the title says – roasted asparagus with capers and breadcrumbs.

I can’t really give you exact measurements because it is more of a method than a recipe, so use your judgment based on the amount of people you are serving and the size of the asparagus. You can’t really go wrong!
