This recipe is delicious and would be perfect for the upcoming holidays. It’s one of those recipes that needs to be made at the last minute but it’s super easy so it goes together quickly. This is a Cooking Light recipe that I changed a little bit.
Roast Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter
1 bunch asparagus
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsps butter
2 tsps soy sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400º.
Coat a small baking sheet with cooking spray and arrange the cleaned asparagus on it. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the asparagus and bake for 12 minutes or until tender. The asparagus I used was super thin so it only took 12 minutes but if it’s thicker, you might need a longer time in the oven.
In a small pan, melt the butter over medium heat and let it cook for about 3 minutes or until it browns, shaking the pan occasionally ~ be careful not to let it burn. If it burns, start over. Remove the pan from the heat and add the soy sauce and vinegar, stirring until combined.
Pour the sauce over the asparagus on the baking sheet and toss to combine. Plate the asparagus and pour any sauce on the pan over the top.
Serve immediately ~ this will not keep.
Makes 4 servings.
