Here's what I've shared with you so far:
  1.  Sean's Banana Berry Birthday Smoothie (Soy, Wheat, Nut, Fish and Egg-Free, Can Be Milk-Free)
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 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!
Super Simple Roasted Asparagus 

Super Simple Roasted Asparagus
2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper (to taste)
  1. Preheat oven to 400oF.
  2. Place asparagus in a shallow 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Drizzle oil over asparagus and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper to taste on all sides.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned; about 15 to 20 minutes.
Makes about 6 servings.
Variations (Please keep your particular allergen needs in mind when using substitutions!):
  • Super Simple Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar: Prepare asparagus as directed, drizzling with balsamic vinegar before serving.  You can even use a flavored balsamic vinegar (i.e. raspberry), if desired.

  • Super Simple Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar and Pecans: Prepare asparagus as directed, drizzling with balsamic vinegar (regular or flavored - raspberry is excellent with this dish) and sprinkling with chopped pecans before serving.  You could also substitute chopped or slivered almonds for the pecans as well.

  • 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!

Totally simple, totally delicious and so many ways to enjoy it!
