  1. Cynthia, you are making me hungry! This will be perfect side vegetables with the turkey that I am planning to cook this coming Thursday. I used to love baking the asparagus and wrap it with bacon as an appetizer but we will have a lot of food so it is better to stick to this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe! 

    1. I have heard of baking asparagus wrapped in bacon but I haven’t tried it (yet).  Probably because I never considered it as an appetizer but now I think I will the next time I have guests!  Thank you for the great idea and I I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. 

  2. I have heard alot about how medicinal this herb is and i can now confirm why. Roasting it with olive oil and nuts makes it more nutritious and juicy as well. This one is a sure one that am gona try and I would really want again to tank you for sharing this wonderful post.

    1. Asparagus is loaded with health benefits…low in calories and a good source of many vitamins.  One serving provides 60% of your daily recommended intake of folic acid!  And it tastes great!  Please check back in to let me know how you liked this recipe!

  3. This looks really yummy. Way to go in making me hungry at this time of the day. Just kidding though. Who knew asparagus could be taken roasted, I mean baked and boiled for sure, but roasting this takes it to an entirely different level. Definitely looking forward to trying this.

    1. Thank you for your comments!  I love roasted vegetables of all kinds so it was only a matter of time before I tried it with asparagus!

  4. I recently discovered that I can cook asparagus and being able to get them not to be stringy. To achieve this we need to hold each spear. One hand at the base and the other hand a couple of inches up the stalk and bending until the stalk naturally snaps off. Once we get the hang of this process, it will go very quickly and prevent our cooked asparagus from being tough or stringy at the ends.
