Roasted Asparagus With Balsamic Soy Sauce

March 24th, 2012 | Posted by Angela in Recipes | Side Dishes | Vegan | Vegetarian

This is one of our families favorite vegetable side dishes.  This dish goes well with almost anything.  From feta stuffed peppers, fish, and grilled chicken.  If you have children the sauce makes this one a winner.  I have to keep an eye on Ava because I often catch her eating the sauce with a spoon!

Here is what you need:

One bunch of asparagus, 3 tablespoons butter (you can omit the butter) , 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce (we also like Bragg’s liquid amino in place of soy sauce), sea salt, and pepper

Here is what you do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Lightly coat baking sheet with olive oil.  Cut the tips off of your asparagus and place on baking sheet.  Drizzle olive oil over asparagus and use a brush or fingers to rub onto asparagus (I usually have olive oil ready in a squirt bottle).  Sprinkle asparagus with sea salt and pepper to your liking.

Place in preheated oven for 10 minutes.  While the asparagus is cooking combine butter, vinegar, and soy sauce or liquid amino in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Remove asparagus from oven and top with sauce.  Serve immediately.
