Mince 4-5 cloves of garlic, mix in a Ziploc bag with about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and a table spoon of olive oil. Olive oil is a healthier version of vegetable oil, so I like to use it whenever I can. (I’ll make a post about the difference between the two a bit later.)

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 7-10 mins (until golden brown.)

Ingredients:

  • Fresh minced garlic
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese (you can substitute vegan or your favorite cheese here)
  • Organic asparagus

What to do:

  1. Mince Garlic, grate cheese
  2. Add mixture of garlic and cheese to a Ziploc bag along with 1 tbsp of olive oil
  3. Using your hands, add the asparagus to the mixture and rub the ingredients around in the bag for about 2 mins. This is to evenly distribute the flavors to every piece of asparagus and make every one of them extra savory 🙂
  4. Place the contents of the bag onto a piece of tinfoil and bake for 7-10 mins (until they appear golden brown.)
  5. Eat and enjoy!

Easy, delicious and will impress any guests that you have over 🙂
