Asparagus is here!

Just a short post this week because I want to share this recipe while the asparagus is still in the markets. Put a Fork In It has had some beautiful asparagus the last two weekends but it goes FAST. I got to the market at 9:05am on Saturday and just barely got some. The other ingredients you can also get locally - the olive oil from Ohh-lio Express or both the oil and the balsamic vinegar from The House of Olives and the nuts from Chosen Roasters.

Fancy Asparagus (V)
(1 serving each)
6 asparagus stalks
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar (I used the Blackberry Ginger from House of Olives)
1 tablespoon slivered almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on a cookie sheet.
  2. Chop off the bottom 1-1.5 inches of the asparagus stalks. Lay stalks on the olive oil.
  3. Drizzle balsamic vinegar over the stalks and finish with the almonds.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until asparagus reaches your desired tenderness.
I made 3 servings and saved some for later.
 That's all it is - easy to do but delicious!
