Asparagus has a very unique taste, I cant think of anything else to describe what it tastes like.

@asianyoushi:  Ummm I’m not good at describing tastes but I think all veggies taste delicious roasted! Did people say it tasted weird?

@asianyoushi:  I broil mine for 6 min then flip and for another 6! Keeps em a little crunchy and not soggy

@asianyoushi:  Technically you can eat it raw so it’s really your preference. I roast the heck out of them and my mom lightly steams them, so whatever you prefer!

@asianyoushi:  Can you bite through it, but still have to chew?  Then it’s done.  It should still be green, not brownish.  If it’s brownish, it’s overcooked.  

GOOD FOR YOU branching out!  Just try lots of things.

Erm, best way I can describe it is like a mix between brocolli and green beans, slightly sharper than brocolli (that’s how it tastes to me anyway lol)

It’s like broccoli but a little more… Assertive? Can’t really describe it. I typically avoid it because  (TMI warning) it makes your pee smell soooo bad.

@TheLawrenceBride:  I would agree with that description. Its difficult to describe the taste lol. I just know that I like it!

My parents grow asparagus in their garden, and I have found that I love asparagus more when the stalks are skinnier and more tender than those you usually find in the grocery store.

@asianyoushi:  Gotcha. I would roast in a 400 degree even for 20ish minutes. Shake them around in the pan every once in awhile. They should just be turning slightly brown and easily pierced with a fork.

If you open it and it smells like fish then toss it! It should be warm and crunchy. Not over cooked. The taste itself is hard to describe – the texture is the key to me.
