Sometimes the hardest part of dinner, are the side dishes! You spend all this time cooking and planning your dinner, and then you realize you have nothing to serve with it. There are many times that we go without side dishes at our house. I try to grab a couple of vegetables at the store every week because they make healthy and fast side dishes. My favorite lately is this 15 Minute Roasted Asparagus! You can literally have dinner completely made, realize you don’t have a side dish, throw together this asparagus and have it ready to eat in the time it takes everyone to get to the table. It really is a life saver!
All you need is some asparagus, olive oil and seasoning salt. I like to use the Lowry’s brand seasoning salt. But the good news is, if you don’t have seasoning salt you can just use good old salt and pepper! You can also experiment with other flavors, adding some lemon-pepper seasoning or some chili flakes. The possibilities are endless!
