Asparagus with Soy Sauce and Honey





























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 🙂

How to roast asparagus

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 at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes and you end up with a lovely side dish.

What are the benefits of eating asparagus?

  • Full of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
  • High in nutrients including folic acid, fiber, potassium, vitamin A and C.
  • Nutritional benefits that help your heart, bones and digestion.

How do you know if asparagus has gone bad?

  • The key to telling if asparagus has gone bad is to look at the tips of the vegetable. The tips will look dark green, almost black.
  • The tips are soft and mushy to the touch.
  • Asparagus stays good for approximately 5-7 days.
