Roasted Asparagus & a Giveaway


Roasted Asparagus

How do you like your veggies?  I love mine roasted.  Broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts, pretty much any vegetable is good roasted.  Normally I just put a little olive oil, salt and pepper on them, and put them in a hot oven for 15 minutes.  They come out tender, slightly caramelized, and with so much flavor.

Roasted Asparagus

A couple weeks ago I received a package from Star Fine Foods with all sorts of their oils and balsamic vinegars.  I was so excited to play around, I didn’t know where to begin. Finally, I decided to start simple.  I used their Roasted Garlic Olive Oil over some asparagus.  I first tasted the oil on a cracker to see how much flavor it had.  It was the perfect balance of roasted garlic to olive oil; it wasn’t over powering at all.  It was kind of hard to resist just sitting down with a box of crackers and the bottle of oil.

After roasting the asparagus, the oil gave it just a hit of garlic in the background.  A great edition to my normally plain roasted asparagus.  I also received a rosemary infused oil, which I can’t wait to use when roasting some potatoes.
