Light Thanksgiving: Roasted Asparagus

Healthy sides

Yes, the Holidays are all about indulging and letting yourself enjoy the last few months of the year. That doesn’t mean you have to totally bust up all your hard work at the gym by consuming thousands of calories over the course of a couple of days!! I am all about healthy decadence…I’m talking’ healthy dishes, that are good for you without sacrificing flavor!

Your Thanksgiving sides are the perfect place to insert a little healthy decadence in to your holiday table! These asparagus spears can sub out that heavy green bean casserole and I promise you won’t even miss it…

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Trim off dry ends of asparagus

*RGK Tip: simply bend the asparagus spear and it will naturally snap where the asparagus should be trimmed…

Peel and slice 1 shallot and 3-5 cloves of garlic and place in baking dish

Drizzle with olive oil and Bake for 10 minutes

After 10 minutes, add asparagus to the baking dish and toss shallots and garlic throughout

Drizzle with a bit more olive oil & sprinkle a pinch of sea salt

(the shallot and garlic take longer to soften so they cook first!)

Bake asparagus for 10 minutes
