Roast asparagus, uncovered, in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until crisp-tender, lightly tossing twice during the roasting. Kitchen tongs make it easy to grab a bunch of asparagus spears.
Save time by simmering spears on the stovetop instead of roasting them in the oven. Lay the asparagus in a skillet and top with an inch of water. Lightly salt the water and bring it to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the spears are crisp-tender.
You can count on this light and luscious dessert to provide the perfect ending to your brunch. To add a signature flavor, try substituting raspberry-, lemon-, or orange-flavored yogurt.
