Happy Monday everybody!! Today was officially the last Monday of my junior year of college! I cannot believe how fast time flies. I am super excited for finals to be over and for it to be officially summertime!
Today’s yummy recipe is Roasted Asparagus! I made this version in the oven but asparagus is also super easy to throw on the grill for a tasty summertime side dish.
Asparagus is a good source of folic acid, potassium, and Vitamin K. Folic Acid helps the body form red blood cells. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure. And lastly Vitamin K helps with the synthesis of blood-clotting proteins and bone proteins.
Here is my recipe for Roasted Asparagus:
1 bunch of asparagus
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Romano Cheese
- Preheat oven to 400⁰.
- Wash bunch of asparagus.
- Toss asparagus with olive oil. (I used a loaf pan).
- Toss in grated Romano cheese.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper. (Just a dash of each)
- Spread asparagus on baking pan. (I used a stone baking pan with raised edges to prevent rolling)
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Enjoy 🙂
