Servings: 6 servings
Calories: 48 kcal
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil (I line my sheet with foil for easier clean up).
Roast the asparagus for 8-10 minutes, until just tender.
While the asparagus is roasting, boil the balsamic vinegar until reduced to about 1/4 cup.
Divide asparagus among the plates and top with sliced berries, basil, and salt and pepper.
Use a spoon to drizzle each serving of asparagus with the balsamic syrup.
Approximate cost/serving: This is especially cheap if you grow your own basil and strawberries, or you can also get your berries in season at a local farm. We got our asparagus at Costco for a great price, and often see them on sale at our local grocery store this time of year. The whole recipe cost me about $7 to make (buying the strawberries but using my basil) and came out to just $1.17 per serving.
Vegetarian/Gluten Free: Yes, and vegan and paleo too!
