Delicious recipe! I used local organic asparagus and garlic and fresh lavender from our garden. The problem I have is the long roasting time. Most asparagus would be shriveled stalks (which in their former life used to be asparagus) if cooked for a full 40 minutes. I roasted them for 10 minutes and it worked out fine! Change the cooking time and I'll happily give the recipe a 5 star-rating.
This is a nice change from steamed asparagus, although cooking time may have been a little long. We like it a little crisper. The flavors are really nice, though.
Yummy! This will be a go to recipe for me from now on. I love cooking with lavender. This is easy and very very flavorful.
