Easy Roasted Asparagus

I am so happy Spring is here.  I love all the spring fruits and veggies.  I picked up some asparagus the other day and I knew I wanted to roast them.  This Easy Roasted Asparagus is so easy and fool proof!  I promise you will love it.  This roasted asparagus recipe is very similar to my Easy Roasted Broccoli and my Honey Balsamic Brussel Sprouts.

Roasted Asparagus - My Whole Food Life

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like my asparagus to be completely soft.  I like a little crunch still left to it.  That is why I only roasted mine for 10 minutes.  If you like a softer asparagus, feel free to keep it in the oven longer.

Crock Pot Baked Beans

I just love crock pot meals.  I am more of a baker than a cook, so I tend to make my cooking recipes super easy.  I have had a lot of requests lately for toddler friendly recipes.  This is one!  When I was a little girl, my favorite meal was baked beans.  Of course back then, I ate the pork and beans in a can.  No pork in this, but I promise it is delicious! I also have my Healthy Toddler Crackers.

Recipe Notes

You can cook it longer if you like. The longer it cooks, the more the flavors develop. This made at least 4-5 servings. You can eat it right away, store it for later, or even freeze it. Enjoy!
