When I think spring, it usually conjures up scents of lemon. The clean, fresh scent is a welcome addition to the beginning of the warm weather season.

And lemon on asparagus is absolutely amazing and is the perfect melding of fruit and vegetable. I baked the asparagus in the oven but it is just as good on the grill. Be careful not to overcook because the vegetable becomes tough and stringy.

I paired with rice noodles cooked with low-fat coconut milk but any rice or noodle work. The asparagus is also great on top of a salad so you may want to double-up the recipe.

ENJOY!

My ancestry is half Italian so anything with the word “Roman” in it automatically gets my attention.

The jury is still out on whether or not to call this funky looking veggie broccoli or cauliflower. I think it tends to be more like cauliflower but is a little more tender and sweeter.

Whatever you choose to call it, romanesco is a wonderful vegetable with a lot to offer. If you happen to find some at your local farmers market or grocery, romanesco is an excellent addition to vegan recipes for pastas, salads, and adding a dimension to just about any dish.

Nutritionally speaking, this veggie contains high levels of carotenoids, iron, Vitamin C and folates.

ENJOY!

This is the first of two consecutive posts on bowls. They turned out really well and are extremely satisfying. You can, of course, try different veggies suited to your individual taste.

It is good both hot and cold and keeps in the refrigerator for a few days.

ENJOY!
