The easiest asparagus ever....

Posted by Christina // 6 Replies

So you say you don’t like asparagus huh?

Well, you haven’t tried it with blue cheese.
Trust me on this okay.

When I joined our local fruit and veggie delivery service, they started throwing food at me that I had never heard of before.  Or maybe I had heard of it but refused to buy it, or eat it, or even smell it (lookin at you brussel sprouts).  So when I got a bundle of asparagus, I found a recipe where you stuffed asparagus and lots of cheese in some bacon.  Yea that is my kind of food.

Then I decided that I could leave off the bacon and call it delicious.

It is the easiest tasty thing you can make, I promise.
Here….I will prove it. easy asparagus step one Wash your asparagus, break off the ends, put them in a pan and drizzle olive oil over it.  I throw it in the oven at 400 degrees and set the timer for fifteen minutes. easy asparagus step two Once the fire alarm timer let’s me know what is up I just take a fork and gently roll the asparagus.  Channel your tanning bed days, you want to get a nice even glow.  I will tell you that sometimes at this point the olive oil is sizzling, so be very careful my friends.  Then spread some blue cheese crumbles on top and throw it back in the oven for about five minutes to get it all good and melty. easy asparagus step three Once the cheese is melty (totally official cooking term) take the pan out and let the sizzle stop.  Load it up on your fanciest paper plate and enjoy the semi-healthy goodness.  Don’t judge my paper plates, we were having steak and I can’t handle the knife-cutting screech.  Okay, okay, I just didn’t want to wash dishes.

Do you have any good veggie recipe?
Ever tried beets or brussel sprouts?  Those are next on our “to cook” list.
Are you a paper plate fanatic too?

    I really like brussels sprouts cut in half and grilled, especially with a little smoked salt, Old Bay, and EVOO on ’em. I hope you like them! I can’t remember if you like mushrooms but we LOVE portabella burgers. They’re just sauteed in some sort of oil, smoked salt, Old Bay (sensing a theme?), smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning. It’s mushroom heaven.

    We don’t eat meat so we make veggies A LOT 🙂

      You might roll your eyes at this….but what is Old Bay?

      PS…I have tried commenting on your page a couple times but it always asks me to log in to WordPress and then it tells me my password is wrong. I changed it once and was able to comment I think but now it is all “no that is not your password” again and I don’t get it! WordPress hates me haha
