Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes

 

When someone tells me they don’t like a certain vegetable, I always challenge them to try it roasted before ruling it out forever.  Roasting brings out amazing flavors while maintaining a pleasing texture.  The general recipe is to cut veggies into uniform sizes, spritz with olive oil, roast at 400 for 15-20 minutes, then sprinkle with salt & pepper.  That’s exactly what I did here with two veggies from my co-op offering.  Serve as a side dish to any protein, or make roasted veggies the main star of the meal.

  1. Oh, yum! I love roasting both tomatoes (cherry or grape) and asparagus. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love asparagus and I love roasted cherry tomatoes, I HAVE to try this! Thanks. :)

  3. I totally agree – roasting veggies is FABULOUS! By the way grilling them is very similar. Also, if you slice a shallot thinly and toss with other veggies (esp green beans) and roast it really changes the flavor – so yummy!

  4. Roasting is the best way to go!! Definitely brings out all those flavoooorr!
