How is your week going? A while back I had some asparagus at in my laws for dinner and I really liked it so I asked my mother in law how she made it and she said she simply made it with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and roasted in the oven. I said, that’s it? I’m going to try it! Because we all know I like to keep it as simple as possible. If it takes more than 15 minutes to prepare, I’m usually not interested (unless its a special occasion)
My mother in law makes some of the best food around but it’s usually not vegan or even vegetarian so since I stopped eating meat, I load up on all the vegetables whenever we eat there, which are always pretty good.
So this past weekend, I made it for dinner. I put all the ingredients in a ziplock bag and gave it a shake.
I usually line my tray with foil to avoid having to wash it.
I served with some super delicious roasted potatoes. And, eggs.
Although I eat 90% vegan I still have not made a complete transition to vegan because I still eat eggs about once a week. I’m working on it. Obviously, the asparagus and potatoes alone make it a delicious dish.
1 Tbs. of Olive Oil
1 clove of Garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Place all ingredients in a ziplock bag and mix
Lay asparagus on a non-stick sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
Pretty simple right? Its a great side to any dish whether vegan or not. I am not sure why it took me this long to prepare.
