Tasty!

21 Feb

I made the best dinner the other night. It was light, fulfilling, healthy, and the best part, tasty!

I started with a sauce pan full of water for the Asparagus.

The secret to making amazing asparagus is lemon. Yes, I add lemon. I did not have any fresh lemons this time so I used lemon juice. (In the little squeezable lemon shaped bottle.) Squeeze just enough so the water is tart or a whole lemon sliced, squeezed, and dropped into the pan. I also added salt and pepper. Depending on how crunchy you want your asparagus will determine how long you boil it. I go for approx 10 minutes.

Next, I preheated the over to 425, seasoned 2 thin slices of pork with salt/pepper and a seasoning salt. Bake for 15 minutes.

Finally, I made an amazing salad with a cup of apple sauce. I used roman lettuce and chopped it into small pieces. I added black olives, chick peas, artichoke hearts, croutons, topped with Kraft Light Parmesan Asiago Balsamic Vinaigrette (amazing).

The end result was AMAZING! Very quick dinner, yet very healthy!

    My husband loves pork chops so he cooks them all the time. I love asparagus and salad (he does not). I usually make my asparagus in the oven with olive oil and pink salt. Never tried lemon before, will have to try soon.

      If I bake the asparagus I will rub it down with olive oil, cracked rock salt, and slice up a lemon squeeze it, slice it, and bake it with the asparagus…. That is delicious!

      Pink salt.. I will have to try that!

    Asparagus is my favorite vegetable ever. I roast my asparagus with a bit of olive oil drizzled over it and sea salt. I have never tried the lemon before. I will have to try that next time.

    Asparagus is my favorite vegetable, but I have never quite mastered cooking it perfectly. I will definitely try the lemon, thanks so much for the tip! =)
