Recipe Notes

  1. 1. This recipe is vegan and gluten free. 2. You can add a squeeze of lime or lemon on top if you so desire.
  2. HOW TO STORE ASPARAGUS: After the dish has cooled completely, transfer to a air-tight tupperware container. Place in the fridge and store for 2 days. You can reheat in a toaster oven until heated through. I do recommend only cooking what you will be eating since this does not store well. .
  3. HOW TO FREEZE ASPARAGUS If freezing, I would freeze the raw asparagus freezer friendly zipper plastic bag, and then roast the asparagus. Allow to thaw and then roast when needed.
