I will be the first to admit, I am really bad about making sides for meals. That being said, one of our more common sides is some simple roasted asparagus. It is quick, cheap, and easy to make. The first time I had it cooked this way was visiting family and my brother-in-law made this for us. So next time we got some asparagus in our fruit/veggie co-op I sent him a text asking how to make it. You can adapt this to go with many different recipes just by changing the seasonings you use on the asparagus. I typically use onion powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning on mine.
- 1 bundle asparagus
- 2 tbsp butter
Snap the ends of the asparagus to know where to cut the base off and trim all of the asparagus
In a medium skillet, warm the butter and asparagus over medium heat and top with desired seasonings
Stir frequently and cook until asparagus is tender and starts to brown, about 10 minutes
