Somehow it just doesn’t seem right to slather butter and loads of cheese on vegetables. Isn’t that defeating the purpose of eating healthy vegetables? It is always a challenge to find new healthy ways to cook vegetables. I discovered this recipe and loved it. Not only is it flavorful, but quick and easy. I have also made it on the grill and loved it even more. Enjoy!
- One bunch Asparagus
- sprinkling of Feta Cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped, sun-dried Tomatoes (not packed in oil)
- 2-3 tablespoons good quality Balsamic vinegar
- salt and pepper
Trim the bottoms of your asparagus. Quick and easy – microwave asparagus on a plate with a few tablespoons of water, covered with a paper towel, for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to overcook. My personal favorite – drizzle asparagus with olive oil and grill.
To finish, top with balsamic vinegar and other ingredients, season with salt and pepper as desired and serve.
LOVE asparagus. I usually roast it in the oven with salt, pepper, olive oil, and crushed garlic. I will have to try it topped with the sundried tomatoes, feta and balsamic. Sounds really good.
I think you’ll love it!
Yumm! I roast asparagus in balsamic all the time, but I just love how you added feta and sundried tomatoes.
Give it a try on the grill – it’s awesome!
Nice simple recipe, but good flavors. Will try.
Give it a try and let me know how you like it – it is much better on the grill.
Looks delish! Do you reconstitute the sun dried tomatoes in a little water or just leave them dry?
Thanks! If the sun dried tomatoes are hard, yes, I would “plump” them with water.
I’m an expert “plumper”- I can smell most foods and get plump myself.
Lovely! Nice and simple; just the way asparagus is supposed to be prepared – this looks great.
Thank you very much … yes, just the way vegetables are intended!
Exactly 😀 I’m glad you appreciate that.
I love asparagus! It’s also delicious pan-roasted with a tomato-ripe olive-and garlic sauce on top.
Thank you for this recipe. I’m always looking for new ones for my favorite vegetable!
Ohhh that does sound good as well!
I’ve been eating asparagus all season! Fresh veggies are best kept simple. I’ll be trying this, yum!
Very nice combination …
Thank you … simple, but delicious!
