Asparagus with Mustard Marinade by El Navarrico


Sink your teeth into these crunchy asparagus marinated in mustard. These are thick white spears that can be used as side dishes salads and with boiled potatoes. The reason the asparagus are white or blanched is because they are created by covering the budding spears with dirt, depriving them of sunlight which inhibit photosynthesis, leaving them with the white or blanched color.
