On Friday I shared a new recipe I tried out via Pinterest! I love giving new recipes a shot, especially because I consider myself to be the ultimate amateur in the kitchen. Learning new techniques and skills as well as building confidence to try out new flavours is like learning to ride a bike for the first time. Scary, it takes some practice, but once you have it down, it’s smooth sailing!
I never learned much about cooking growing up, my mom tried, but I’d pull the traditional teenager pout, and never paid much attention. I did and still do enjoy baking, however my tolerance for failure in the kitchen is very very low. Hubby Bumpkin has many stories of complete toddler-like meltdowns over things like scorched shish-kabobs, and falling cake pops. So easy peasy is a must for me!
That’s why when I create a recipe myself that gets rave reviews from friends and family I am so eager to share it with you!
Lemon Asparagus is a simple and delicious way to add a lot of flavour to your plate! This recipe is so easy and is a big hit in our house!
To make this recipe you’ll need
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt, to taste
I spread the asparagus evenly on the rack over a baking sheet. Drizzle the oil to coat each stalk. I then squeeze the juice from half the lemon over top. Add salt to taste and top with lemon slices for baking.
I place in the oven at 425 degrees for around 10 minutes, but keep a close eye on it, as I have this funny thing about ‘forgetting’ whatever’s in the oven.
Remove when the asparagus is tender, and serve! Yum! I really can’t think of a more simple crowd pleaser than this!
