You know it is springtime when asparagus is available at the grocery store (or even better, from our backyard garden)!
Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables.
One cup provides an excellent source of fiber (3 grams), vitamin K, folate, and iron.
Here is one simple way to enjoy this delicious green:
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!
Asparagus makes the perfect side dish. I enjoy it with grilled chicken or baked cod.
