Asparagus, tossed with olive oil, grain mustard, fresh rosemary, lemon zest, and sea salt. Roasted until nutty and fragrant. Simple, just like that.

The mustard adds a tangy spice and crunch, rosemary pairs gorgeously with both old-fashioned mustard and asparagus, and the lemon zest is like a flash bulb, exploding and exposing the best things in all the other flavors.
