Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus and the mushrooms with the olive oil to coat (adding a little more if necessary).
  3. Sprinkle with the coarse salt.
  4. Spread the vegetables on two cookie sheets so they are not touching.
  5. Roast for about 20 to 25 minutes, shaking the pans occasionally so that the vegetables do not stick, until the asparagus is nicely browned and the mushrooms are cooked through.
  6. Remove the pans from the oven and arrange the vegetables on individual plates or a serving platter.
  7. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and season with the salt the pepper to taste.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature.
