I think my problem for the longest time was not knowing how to cook. I would try asparagus, broccoli, and other veggies and thought I hated them, but I just didn’t know how to make them taste good! For people in college, like me, or even for people who just don’t know how to cook, I’m here to save you! Today I’ll tell you the easiest way to make asparagus.
Asparagus are a wonderful vegetable to include in your diet. They contain folic acid and antioxidants. They were used in Ancient Greece and Rome as a natural remedy to flush out the kidneys. They lower blood pressure (due to diuretic action), stimulate digestion (due to bitterness), purify the blood, removes uric acid, anti-parasitic, promotes fertility, and helps halt kidney disease. Enough reasons to make you want to eat some tonight?
1-1 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil
Salt & pepper
How to cook it:
Preheat the oven to 400.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. This will help with the clean up process.
Cut the ends off the asparagus. (not the funny looking ends, you eat those… the ends that are hard and sometimes whitish)
Place asparagus on cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, coat well.
Top with salt and pepper, and (optional) goat cheese.
Place in oven for 13-15 minutes.
Note: Cheese is not technically Paleo. Some people who can tolerate dairy consume it, and goat’s dairy is more tolerable.
