Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

I love asparagus and this is by far one of my favorite asparagus recipes. It combines two of my favorite things, asparagus and balsamic, so I knew right off the bat that it was going to be a keeper. It could not be simpler to make and it will be ready in less than 15 minutes. What’s not to love?

Balsamic Roasted Asparagus (adapted from

  2. Arrange the asparagus on a baking sheet. Coat with cooking spray, and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Pour over the baked asparagus to serve.

  1. This recipe looks so yummy! I’ll definitely have to try it out tonight. I make a roasted bone-in pork chop with a balsamic reduction that would go great with this. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  2. I love asparagus! I’ve not tried making it yet with balsamic vinegar – I’ll have to try it out! I usually make it with a little brown sugar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds on the grill. Time to change it up! 🙂
