There are many health benefits associated with asparagus, including antioxidants and fiber. It can also help you lose weight and lower your blood pressure (See Healthline for more health benefits). Despite its nutritional content for you, you may find it hard to eat fresh. But don’t fret! This article will look at the top 3 toaster-oven-roasted asparagus recipes.
Brie shares a delicious roasted asparagus spears recipe with balsamic vinegar and chopped walnuts. According to the author, roasting has a couple of incredible benefits: “…it greatly enhances the flavor and sweetness of the asparagus”. Even the most novice cook should produce some tasty spears with this recipe. 😋
Another great recipe by Brie. Only this time, you’ll be roasting pieces much smaller. Which, as she notes, you can “…add to a bowl of pasta, corn and quinoa salad or even veggie nachos.” This recipe is super simple, requiring only three additional ingredients: salt, pepper, and oil.
In this article, Sarah presents three different ways to roast asparagus. However, we’re only concerned with the toaster oven so let’s focus on that one. Her recipe calls for using a cast-iron skillet in a toaster oven, something I feel is a must to have on hand (call me old-school if you want, haha). The recipe is relatively simple and even calls for some Montreal Steak Seasoning. Yum!
