Roasted Asparagus with Soy Sauce and Honey is a quick side with only 5 ingredients. Fresh and flavorful!
Today is the first official day of spring, Easter is this weekend and the weather is getting warmer. We spent Saturday doing yard work and starting our spring cleaning. One of my favorite things about this time is finding young, skinny asparagus at the grocery store!! This probably sounds silly but I get so excited when I see skinny asparagus at the store. I feel it tastes better, is tender crisp and just better than the super thick stalks. The bright green color just screams spring time and thank goodness winter is over 🙂
I love asparagus and this is a super simple recipe that only requires a few ingredients you probably have on hand. The soy sauce and honey give the asparagus a slight salty sweet flavor and it is done in 15 minutes. For this recipe I cut the ends off of the asparagus and give the stalks a rinse under the water.
Toss the asparagus in a little olive oil, mixture of honey and soy sauce and then a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Put it in the oven for 10-12 minutes and you end up with a lovely side dish.
If you are looking for a quick and simple side dish full of flavor, you will love this asparagus. This recipe makes about four servings but my husband and I enjoy it so much, we can finish it between the two of us.
