Spring is officially here in St. Louis.

Tulips are up.

Leaves are budding on the trees.

My garden has sprouted its sorrel and chives and chamomile.

It’s a time to celebrate all things rebirth and renewal.

And all things green and fresh and vibrant.

And, all things asparagus.

Depending on where you live, asparagus peaks from early April to late June. And there are a lot of reasons to take advantage of this spring crop. It’s packed with good-for-you vitamins and minerals like A, C, E, K, and B6, as well as folate, iron, copper, calcium, protein and fiber. Asparagus is low in calories and carbohydrates and high in fiber.

Asparagus helps beat bloat.

And it may help your hangover. Really!

This garlicky roasted, chili lime asparagus is simple and fresh. And comes together with minimal ingredients, time and energy. Chances are you can make this with the pantry staples you have on hand. Because if you have chili powder, olive oil, salt, pepper and a lime on hand – you are good to go. Chili lime asparagus is great side for taco night or served with an egg on top for an easy brunch or brunch-for-dinner meal.

On a personal note – this Thursday is the opening night of my new monthly dinner series, Of All The Places I Call Home. And there’s a fresh crop of asparagus at Eckert’s Farm that’s ready for me to prepare for my guests. Local asparagus – what a dream. I’m eager and anxious for this new series to get off the ground and running. Tickets for April 26 are sold out. But tickets for May 31 will be released very soon. To get first dibs on these, please add your name and email to this list.

    I am obsessed with asparagus season! This recipe looks right up my alley. And I’ve never heard about the hangover cure – hmm just another excuse to load up while it’s spring. Also have fun at your monthly dinner pop up this week! I will make it to one at some point, xo.

    I swear you are a master at taking a single simple vegetable and making it so exciting and new – this asparagus included! Also I’m really sad I’m not in STL and can’t come to your dinner series.
