Ingredients
  • 1 pound asparagus ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 20 medium strawberries sliced
  • 10 leaves basil chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil (I line my sheet with foil for easier clean up).
  3. Roast the asparagus for 8-10 minutes, until just tender.
  4. While the asparagus is roasting, boil the balsamic vinegar until reduced to about 1/4 cup.
  5. Divide asparagus among the plates and top with sliced berries, basil, and salt and pepper.
  6. Use a spoon to drizzle each serving of asparagus with the balsamic syrup.
Recipe Notes

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!
