You would think that a food blogger would prepare multi-course meals for their family in Martha Stewart fashion. Nope. It is totally the opposite of that 😆
I shoot my recipes early in the day so sometimes I have leftovers to reheat and serve for dinner. If I’ve been working on non-dinner foods all day, the last thing I want to do is cook a full meal at 5pm.
I keep it simple with a protein and a roasted veggie like this Oven Roasted Asparagus Recipe. There’s no 5 star dining happening at my house. Just fresh, simple, nutritious meals.
Can you omit the lemon?
Of course. I love the bright lemon flavor on my asparagus. But, if it’s not your thing or you just don’t have a lemon on hand, feel free to leave it off.
What other kinds of oils can be used?
Any cooking oil you prefer. I use avocado oil or olive oil. I’ll throw some butter in there if I’m feeling really fiesty!
What should you serve this with?
This roasted asparagus will go with just about any protein. It would also be fabulous with a risotto dish!
