Today, I want to share a very simple spring-time recipe with you that it soy (if you use all soy-free ingredients), wheat, egg, nut, milk and fish-free. It is a recipe that I got from Allrecipes.com as shared by Gemini26 (slightly modified). It is for roasted asparagus and it is just brilliant in it simplicity. If you like asparagus, you will love this! It is so easy to dress up, if you wish (see variations), but is also so delicious as is. It's a fab go-to spring recipe for sure!

- Other options: You could sprinkle the asparagus with Parmesan cheese before serving, with or without the balsamic vinegar and/or pecans, too. Some people even like pairing it with roasted tomatoes or squeezing fresh lemon juice over the top. Have fun playing with the flavors!
