I realize not everyone likes veggies straight up as I do. And sometimes even us veggie junkies need some flavor!
This is a simple marinade for asparagus that takes seconds to prepare and adds just a the right hint of sweetness without adding many calories.
Note: The husband thinks the marinade adds too much of a kick to the asparagus. But you can’t listen to him he doesn’t like asparagus anyway. (but at least I got him to try it!)
- Bunch of Asparagus (about 1 pound)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2-3 gloves of garlic minced in a garlic press
- Salt & Pepper
Mix honey, lemon juice, garlic in a small bowl to make the marinade.
Place asparagus in a ziplock bag. Pour honey garlic mixture on top. Place in fridge for about an hour. Note: I don’t think the time really matters, I just prepare these first while getting everything else ready for dinner.
When ready to cook spread on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Roast about 10-15 minutes in a preheated 375-degree oven.
Last note, I promise: I realize the entire rescipe can serve more then 1, it was just easier to post the nutritional information for the all of it. Just dived by the number of servings you use. Me, I can eat the hole bunch myself!
