Roasted Asparagus

Looking for a versatile side dish that goes with just about anything? Look no further! I absolutely love this Roasted Asparagus recipe. It’s super fast, delicious, and as I said, goes with nearly anything – beef, chicken, pasta… yup. It all works. 

I used to only sort of like asparagus. It wasn’t my least favorite veggie (I’m talking to you, brussels sprouts) but I didn’t really appreciate it until I got older and started cooking it myself. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! I love the little crispy ends of the asparagus in this recipe! It’s the little things…

Start with about 20 stalks of asparagus. This is enough for two of us, because we love asparagus.

I just chop off the woody ends because I’m too impatient to snap each one individually.

Put the asparagus on a baking sheet and coat with 1 tsp of olive oil. Toss them around with your fingers. Then add salt & pepper.

Mix together 1/2 tsp of soy sauce and 1/2 tsp of balsamic vinegar and pour that over the asparagus.
