Roasted Asparagus

Made with just 3 ingredients, roasted asparagus is a healthy side dish that can be pulled together easily. All you need is asparagus, olive oil, and sea salt. Asparagus is a beautifully festive spring vegetable. I love serving it at our Passover Seder as well as at warm weather dinner parties.

Asparagus is a nutritional power house that is high in fiber and low in calories. It’s a great source of  vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Personally though, I love asparagus because it’s delicious and so easy to prepare.

  1. Absolutely says spring to me. Sometimes I just have to gild the lily and wrap in prosciutto, but simply roasted this way is sublime….anytime!

  2. I’ve roasted asparagus like this for a long time, with the addition of a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Delicious!

  3. Keeping it simple brings out so much flavor. We love roasted veggies, EVOO, salt and pepper. This is great for cauliflower, brussel sprouts, green beans, eggplant, onions….. Mmmmm…. I’m hungry!

  4. Oh I am SO excited that Elana is finally coming to LA!! I will be in line for her book signing on June 12!

  5. I roast asparagus, onion and carrots – add them to some vegetable stock and puree. Add a little olive oil and it’s the best soup!

  6. I am a sucker for anything asparagus. While I tend to simply steam mine (and if I’m feeling adventurous, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle lemon zest over), I do love it roasted too! Yum!
