This is a follow-up post to last week's about the Soy Sauce Marinade. As with any good main dish, you need some good sides to go along with, so this week I'll be letting you know my simple recipe for Roasted Asparagus that we made to go along with the flank steak. I apologize for not having more detailed pictures- sometimes I just don't remember to take the pictures for blogging, so I hope you get the gist.
-Asparagus, washed and trimmed
-sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Put asparagus on a sheet pan, and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, and put under the broiler at approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep the oven door open and watch asparagus closely- when it has started to brown and crisp a little, it’s done (5 minutes maybe, depends on your oven)- just take out of the oven and enjoy!
|The asparagus, obviously, is in the lower left corner. Yum!|
This recipe goes with just about everything, and you can apply this concept to other veggies too. Just keep in mind cooking times may change and not all veggies should be cooked under the broiler- it works for asparagus because it cooks so quickly, but some veggies take longer and should be given a little longer time at a little lower temperature.
I'll be back next week for the best recipe for our cheesy squash casserole that's also on this plate.
