Top Review by Spice Princess

This was delicious! I did make a couple changes -- I roasted the asparagus in my toaster oven (personal preference -- I think steaming makes it too "moist") and since is was so hot outside I decided that a cold yogurt sauce would be very refreshing, so I just stirred the ingredients together and let it sit awhile for the saffron to infuse with the yogurt. The result was just fabulous! I had a little sauce left over after the asparagus was gone, so I smeared it on my marinated tofu -- very tasty indeed. Thanks so much for sharing, Sue!
