      Lemony and springy! I whisked together the sauce, placed the asparagus in a grill pan, poured sauce over it and roasted the vegetables for 7-8 minutes at 425 degrees! Fresh parsley replaced thyme. Easy and fast! Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.

      Ok, I'll be perfectly honest in that I didn't expect I'd like this recipe as much as I do, but once I tasted it, the food was gone in a flash. The light tart taste of the lemon contrasted especially well with the dark earthy flavors of the asparagus, extra virgin olive oil and toasted pine nuts. All this action takes place against a delightful backdrop of artfully suggested dijon mustard, kosher salt, thyme and garlic. Definitely recommended.

      This was so delicious. The flavors all go together so well. I roasted my asparagus instead of blanching. Everything else I followed exactly. I will definately make my asparagus like this again. Made for Veg*n swap.
