Meal Planner Monday: Vegetables - Garlic-Roasted Asparagus
This is one of the easiest recipes ever! Lay the asparagus flat in a baking pan or baking sheet. (I cut the spears in half.) Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper if you like. Bake at 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. It is so good especially right now when it's too cold to grill outside(and healthy as long as you don't go overboard on the oil). And, I learned that asparagus is "in season" right now in the grocery stores... I had it the other night with just plain chicken breast and mashed potatoes...and another night with pork pieces seasoned lightly with soy sauce over rice...and another night with tuna steak and baked sweet potato...yum!
