Some of you might be looking at the title and going “Butter on Skinny Mondays”??

Butter in moderation is fine; not my words, but Dr. Ian Smith’s. Yes, that is how I roll at times, echoing back whatever the specialist said. It is perfectly normal to quote someone else otherwise there wouldn’t be a re-post feature on Instagram, a re-tweet tab on Twitter or a share button on Facebook. I’m sure you get what I mean.

I am a huge fan of roasted vegetables if you can tell from this recipe and this too. Grilling vegetables can really concentrate their flavors. I especially love asparagus. Nah, love isn’t the word.  I am obsessed with asparagus! I guess since I love asparagus SO MUCH, I would keep coming up with new recipes at regular intervals. You guys are so lucky. 😀

Today, I did an Asparagus + Balsamic vinegar + Butter + Parmesan combo. Holy asparagus! Too good. This Roasted Asparagus in Balsamic Butter vinaigrette is so simple, yet full on flavor. I could literally eat my body weight worth of asparagus each day. Come to think of it, I would have no complains devouring a plate of roasted asparagus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That also means I would probably end up being Pencil thin for once in my life.

I have been hoping to go to the supermarket one fine day and be greeted with other varieties of asparagus. I have seen purple ones floating around the internet and white ones too. Too pretty. It seems that white asparagus is more prominent in Europe. So now I have to make a trip to Europe just to eat the white asparagus? I am so ready. Till the time, I have saved enough moolah (Read; Money) I am fine with the green ones.
