ROASTED ASPARAGUS

Asparagus is one of the veggies that is so versatile and takes minutes to make for a side dish. My kids will actually eat it too!

BROWNED BUTTER

Browned butter is you heat butter until the milk solids caramelize, and create a toasted, nutty flavor. Adding this to a vegetable makes it so good!

WHAT TO SERVE THIS WITH

Pair it up with a pork tenderloin, as an accessory to your salmon, or wrap it in prosciutto for an appetizer. Really it goes with everything and is the most popular vegetable this spring. My family loves it so I’m always trying different ways to serve it and we really liked this.

  2. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook for 3 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking pan occasionally.
