Well, I'm back on GAPs now and trying to experiment with more vegetables, especially now that I've discovered a lovely source of duck fat!
Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
2 tbsp. leftover bacon grease (or other healthy fat)*
1 pound asparagus
salt and pepper
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1-2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Melt bacon grease and toss asparagus in it. Arrange each stalk on a sheet or in a pan. Salt and pepper the stalks.
Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Remove from oven, sprinkle with parmesan and then return for another minute.
Sprinkle balsamic over to taste.
*Note: While butter, olive oil or duck fat will also work, the flavor from the bacon works really well with asparagus.
