Old-Style Mustard and Rosemary Asparagus Recipe

Kerry Saretsky

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.
