Garlic Roasted Greens

Garlic Roasted Greens

I made these veggies for a party to celebrate Ostara at my new apartment. Even my husband (who hates anything green) can’t stop talking about these sprouts! This is an interesting dish as it combines the female energy of the Brussels sprouts and the extremely potent male energy of the asparagus. Both in season now for Spring! Be sure to focus on your relationship and the physical aspects of it as you make and share this dish. If you do not have a partner, this is also great to share with a potential partner, or to improve your own libido!
