Roasted Asparagus

Roasted veggies have become my go-to side dish if I’m not making a stir fry.  They are good just wish a little olive oil, salt and pepper, but sometimes I’m looking for an even more flavorful seasoning.  I previously made roasted Brussels sprouts using Urban Accents‘ “Balsamic and Roasted Onion Veggie Roaster” and today I am back with another of their seasoning packets.  The Parmesan Mediterranean Veggie Roaster is another delicious seasoning for vegetables.  Although they recommend using it with butternut squash or potatoes, I’ve made this a few times with asparagus and think it works great.  I cannot speak highly enough about how easy these are to use and how delicious the vegetables turn out.  Once again I followed the instructions on the back of the packet and these turned out great.

I began by pre-heating the oven to 350°F, lining a baking sheet with foil and lightly spraying it with non-stick spray.  I poured 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a small bowl and added 1 tablespoon of pasture butter before microwaving them for 30 seconds to melt the butter.  Meanwhile I snapped the bottoms off the fresh asparagus at the natural breaking point and discarded the refuse.

Next I added 1 tablespoon of the parmesan Mediterranean seasoning to the oil and butter and stirred until they were thoroughly combined and kind of an oily paste.  I put the asparagus into a large bowl and drizzled the seasoning over top.  The last time I made these I put the asparagus in a large ziplock bag before adding the oil and mixing them together, which was much easier, but I ran out of plastic bags unfortunately.

I made sure each asparagus was coated in oil and seasoning and then placed them on my baking sheet.  I drizzled the excess oil over top the asparagus before putting them in the oven and baking them for 25 minutes.

I loved how the seasoning’s aroma permeated the house as the vegetables roasted.  When they were finished, the tops were crispy and the rest was tender and extremely flavorful.  Roasted asparagus would be a great side dish for any chicken or salmon dish and this really could not be easier to put together.  These would be a great dish to make for a holiday party in bigger batches or for one or two people on a busy weeknight.  I think either Urban Accents seasoning would do wonders when making kale chips; that will probably be a future test kitchen recipe.
