Garlic Salted Asparagus

Fresh produce, what’s that? Growing up, most of our vegetables came from a can. So, when my husband and I got married I was determined to change things and expand my palette. We began by steaming broccoli and cauliflower. This was a step in the right direction – eating two fresh vegetables, while expanding my food pyramid. This was great, but it was quickly short lived. That’s when we began searching for more fresh vegetable recipes.

There were 3 things I was searching for in a vegetable recipe:

  1. Quick and Easy
  2. Using Fresh Produce
  3. Adding new vegetables to the list

One evening while talking with a co-worker, she shared a great recipe, which hit all my criteria. It sounded so good, I just had to give in a try! It has quickly become a stable!

Garlic Salted Asparagus

Or

Green Beans

Ingredients:

  1. Garlic Salt
  2. Olive Oil
  3. Asparagus or Green Beans (green beans are by far my favorite, but the asparagus is good too.)
  4. Storage Ziploc Bag

Directions:

(I have done this recipe so often that I don’t use exact measurements. I recommend testing out different amounts to see what works for you. But for this post, I will try to give you a suggested starting point.)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Step 2: Cut open the bundle of asparagus or green beans

Step 3: Place vegetable in a storage Ziploc Bag

Step 4: Pour a little less than ¼ cup olive oil in the Ziploc Bag. Close the bag and shake until vegetables are completely coated.

Step 5: Pour about 3 tablespoons of garlic salt into the bag and shake until vegetables are well coated.

Step 6: Place asparagus of ungreased baking sheet and cook in oven for 25 minutes.

Enjoy!
