Roasted Asparagus With Balsamic Vinegar
I found this recipe in one of my cooking light magazines and decided to give it a try. I have never cooked asparagus before this and was unsure how it was going to turn out, but I thought it tasted really good. The balsamic browned butter gives it a really good taste and the asparagus comes out perfect when baked in the oven.
- Ready In:
- cooking spray
- 40 asparagus spears, trimmed (about 2 pounds)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Arrange asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet; coat with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 12 minutes or until tender.
- Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking pan occasionally.
- Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
- Drizzle over asparagus, tossing well to coat.

Got this receipe from my sister. My family and I love asparagus and this is absolutely our favorite way of having it. The vinegar and soy sauce offer such an interesting taste, and the butter smoothes it out beautifully. I woudn' hesitate to make this for someone who isn't sure if they like asparagus because it really delivers a good asparagus taste without being overpowering.Reply
I cut this recipe in half and I quite enjoyed the taste. I undercooked the asparagus slightly, removed them from the oven, coated them with the dressing then put then in my little toaster to keep warm until the rest of the meal was ready. A nice sprinkling of parmesan cheese might have been nice, but I was using parmesan in another dish. I would do this dish again!! Thanks for the posting!Reply
