Yummy Asparagus!

I don't know about you guys but I love summer because summer bring fresh veggies!
One of my favorites is ASPARAGUS! There is nothing like yummy asparagus.
So today I thought all of you might like to know how I like my asparagus!
 I like to line my pans with tin foil to make things easy.
So first I put 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in my lined pan.

After I have washed and cut about an inch of the bottom of my asparagus, I toss them in the olive oil.
I then put them in the oven for about 15 minutes at ° 375.
I like mine a little crunchy so you may want to leave it in a little longer for softer asparagus.

After you take them out of the oven I squeeze a little lemon over them along with some kosher salt.
 I also like to add some toasted almonds...or any kind of toasted nuts.

 Add a little Fetta to top it off and you got some delicious asparagus!
HINT: I normally like to add crumbled bacon on it, but the bacon didn't really go with this meal, but the bacon is yummy.
 And voila, you got a tasty side dish and  I consider it a healthy side dish!
And because you ate "healthy" and it was so simple to make.... you cook your family up some A+ cupcakes for dessert! YUMMY!  I promise you it can't go wrong!

  1. Jodi I just bought asparagus last night and I have never made it. I will try your roasting method. Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home! I love to eat healthy!

    1. Let me know how you like it! I can't ever get my kids to eat vegetables but this is one recipe they will eat.

  2. I love roasting asparagus too, it gives it the best flavor! In fact, I'm making some as a side for dinner tonight! :) I love the addition of the almonds, that's a great idea! :)

    1. I love toasted almonds on my asparagus!

  3. Jodi,
    We tried it and I will blog the recipe soon. I made it and I thought I would be the only one to eat it. My middle son said, do you have any more of that? I said yah! I gave him some and he loved it! He said he discovered he liked asparagus at a school cookout, they made it!?? Who would have know! Not me! LOL! Nice recipe, I will link back to you when I post it. Thanks for sharing at HSH!

    1. I'm glad you liked it esp. your son. It's always nice when we see our kids eat vegetables.
