This is another wonderful asparagus recipe that I love to make. The best thing is that there are two different ways to make it depending on your mood. Here is what you'll need
1 bunch asparagus
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Fresh cracked pepper & garlic to taste (I like to use a garlic & pepper grinder I have, you can also use fresh chopped garlic if you would like)
1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
zest of 1 lemon
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash your asparagus and trim the ends. Lay the asparagus out on a cookie sheet.
Mix the olive oil, lemon, and pepper together. Drizzle the mixture over the top of the asparagus and put it in the oven. Depending on the size of your asparagus, cook for about 15 minutes until it's tender and browned.
Pull out your asparagus. Now you can serve it like this or add the toppings! I like it both ways.
If you're using the toppings, you'll want to toast the almonds before you cook the asparagus. Mix together all the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the asparagus. Serve with a smile!! Enjoy!
