Slow Roasted Asparagus

In 2007 I updated this recipe with a better photo.  At that time it wasn't possible to move a post forward without breaking the link, so that's a brand new post.  I am removing the recipe from this page so it doesn't show up twice in search engine results, but you can see the newer version of Slow Roasted Asparagus at that link.

  1. I will try this Kalyn, sounds really delicious!

  2. Thanks blog friend, on both counts! Couldn't have done it without you! Someday soon I might even try eating FEWER carbs rather than just racking up their counts!

  3. mmm asparagus is one of my favorite veggies. and funny my family had it as our greens on thanksgiving and when i posted the recipe was like WATCH OUT HOW LONG YOU COOK 'EM FOR! they get so soft so easily and with the soft out goes the flavor.

  4. I just got an e-mail from a friend named Nick who gave me an excellent idea. When you make asparagus and break off those ends, use them to make cream of asparagus soup. Thanks for the idea Nick.

  5. My wife doesn't like the sparagus, sigh. I'm a huge fan of the grilling over a wood fire until it's still a little snappy, but not today. Today it's pouring rain and a bit nippy out.
    When I roast it in the oven or grill it I use the squeeze of a lemon instead of the vinegar. I'm a lemon fiend.


  6. I love roasted asparagus, one of favorites!
    It's nice too to toss in some vinegar like red wine, or even better, balsamic. If there isn't the thick aged stuff in the pantry, the reduction works just as well in my opinion. I didn't even realize it was low carb!

  7. Great easy recipe Kalyn. This looks fab.
