When I find a really good, new recipe for veggies, I’m beyond happy. I’m elated! Finding cookie recipes or, say, a new cake recipe that I like, is always tremendously easy. I hardly even have to look for those kinds of new recipes and it seems I have half a dozen on a list to try!

Veggie recipes on the other hand, not so easy! Let’s face it most of us desperately need to eat more veggie and let me tell ya, I lead the pack on this issue! If you’re a regular reader to this blog you know I’ve mentioned this situation before! I struggle to eat my veggies!

 

Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta

Recipe Notes For Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta:

It’s important that all the asparagus gets well coated with the infused oil so make sure you toss it well and spread the garlic out a bit, don’t just pour it on top of the asparagus.

I toss the whole thing right on the baking sheet I’m going to use then straighten the asparagus out into a single layer.

You may need to use 2 baking sheets in order to get a single layer depending on the thickness of your asparagus.

You don’t want to crowd the asparagus or it won’t roast properly.

Also, if you’d like to lighten the dish up a bit, you can use a portion of the oil, say even half of it, not the entire amount. It will still be amazing!
