Asparagus, roasted with thinly sliced shallots, crushed almonds, rosemary and lemon juice.

Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Asparagus and Shallots

16 asparagus spears
1 onion or shallot, thinly sliced
1/4 cup almonds, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Roasted Asparagus and Shallots

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Rinse the asparagus.

  3. Trim the ends of the asparagus where they naturally break off. Either slice the asparagus into diagonal portions or leave whole.

  4. Thinly slice the shallot.

  5. If the almonds are not already crushed, use a food processor to crush them. (If you do not have a food processor, try using a ziplock bag and the back of a spoon to crush them. Be sure to squeeze out most of the air before trying this, or else the ziplock bag will pop!)

  6. Toss the asparagus, olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, salt and pepper.

  7. Place asparagus in an oven-safe dish, and sprinkle shallots and almonds on the top of them.

  8. Cook asparagus in oven for 10-15 minutes.
