Oven Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Healthy Balance Quick and Easy Whole30

Oven Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes, served with steak and potatoes.

Sometimes meal planning takes almost no planning at all.  That’s why I love the spring and summer.  I just mix and match vegetables and proteins and throw them on the grill.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature has put a damper on these plans lately, so my asparagus and tomatoes are going in the oven.

Ingredients for Oven Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 425ºF.  Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray or foil.  Trim your asparagus.  The woody part on the bottom is tough, and I find I have to take more of the bottom because my husband won’t eat the asparagus if there’s too much of that part left.
 Oil, vinegar, and spices combines for asparagus
In a bowl, combine oil, vinegar, pepper, and garlic powder. 
 
Asparagus and Tomatoes on baking sheet
Spread vegetables out in a single layer of the prepared baking sheet.  Drizzle oil mix over vegetables and turn to coat. 
Asparagus and Tomatoes after roasting
Bake for 15 minutes. The skin on the tomatoes should start to wrinkle and even pop a bit.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.
Wasn't that simple?  I love this easy side dish with a nice grilled steak in the summer.  This can easily be done on the grill instead of the oven, just make sure to use a holder or foil so the vegetables don't fall through the grate!
