Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Roasted Margarita Asparagus

Posted by 8 years ago 18 Comments

Sometimes simple is the way to go.

The husband actually ate all his veggies tonight AND I got an unsolicited compliment about them! I still can’t believe it!

Roasted Margarita Asparagus

  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 1 lime cut into thin slices
  • Kosher Salt
  • Non-Stick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Break off the ends of the asparagus, wash them and spread on the cookie sheet.

Season liberally with kosher sat. Top with lime slices.

Roast for 10-15 minutes shaking once or twice during cooking.

No nutrition value on this one, the number of servings depends on how many asparagus are in your “bunch” and the ingredients add zip!

    I'll be trying this. I make my asparagus with lemon all the time, but have never tried it with lime. Thanks Roni! Reply

    Looks great Roni! I'll tell you though, you could have a successful career in food photography. I've never seen food pictures before, that were as beautiful as yours! Reply

    I always use lemon - never thought to use lime. I'm going to try it next time, thanks for the idea! Reply

    A friend of mine recieved some fresh, home-grown grape fruits. So, instead of lime, I use sliced grapefruit atop, and it was a hit! My husband loved it, so it's definitely a winner. Reply

    Wow! I love this recipe. I cooked them exactly as you said and then placed them on top of a ricotta pasta dish that called for asparagus and lemon. Mmm! Thanks for the recipe! Reply

    We made a foil bag and threw them on the grill with some lean steaks. Huge hit, even 2yr old ate up his spears! Reply

    Yum, I've made your recipe a few times now and it's always sooo good. I plan on making this over the weekend with some steamed (over the bbq) rainbow trout. Reply

    One more benefit of asparagus: It contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine, which serves as a natural diuretic, and increased urination not only releases fluid but helps rid the body of excess salts. This is especially beneficial for people who suffer from edema (an accumulation of fluids in the body's tissues) and those who have high blood pressure or other heart-related diseases. .
