On our trip to Reading Terminal Market, I picked up some asparagus since we hadn't eaten any in a while. Plus, at less than a dollar per bunch, do you really even need to think about it? Even though asparagus is a vegetable, we tend to think of it as a "treat vegetable" since it's a bit pricier than most so we don't buy it as often. I wanted the asparagus flavor to come through, so I kept it pretty basic - just asparagus, lime, butter, and Brie. However, I did use brown butter since I thought it'd match the asparagus well. Give this asparagus a try and see what you think!

What's your favorite way to make asparagus?
