First, fresh asparagus stalks are steamed, leaving them with a tender and crispier texture than the oven-roasted method. It's then drizzled with a creamy white bean and artichoke aioli. The one ingredient that is so crucial for the savory flavor of this aioli recipe is the oven-roasted garlic. This side is perfect for spring dinners.
