Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. One cup provides an excellent source of fiber (3 grams), vitamin K, folate, and iron.
Asparagus makes the perfect side dish. I enjoy it with grilled chicken or baked cod.
– 1 lb asparagus
– 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
– 1/2 t. kosher salt
– juice from 1/2 lemon
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. Place trimmed asparagus on a baking sheet (I line mine with foil or parchment paper). Add oil and salt and roast for 15-20 minutes, rotate once. Just before serving, add lemon juice and enjoy!
