Happy Monday!

There’s only a week left until the 4th of July weekend, and I’m so glad! I’ve been working extra days these past few weeks, and I’m ready for a break. But I wish I had planned ahead and noticed that I had extra days off for the 4th of July. Then I would have made plans for a longer getaway, like Philadelphia where one of my friends is currently living while she’s doing her residency.

But I’m soo excited that I still get to have a weekend getaway to the Monterey area to visit my friend Kim. If you remember Kim, we did a little cruise trip back in February. Sadly, I have never been to the Monterey and Carmel area before, but I hear they have amazing seafood and views of the coast. So I seriously can’t wait!

Since it’s asparagus is in season, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to feature asparagus as a dish! For this particular recipe, I roasted the asparagus, but you can definitely toss them on the grill instead for your 4th of July BBQ. That way you won’t have to deal with your kitchen overheating during hot summer days.

I love these asparagus because they’re so simple to make. Just a few simple ingredients, and you can turn fresh seasonal vegetables into something flavorful and delicious. The slightly spicy kick of Creole seasoning with crushed red pepper, the aromatic flavor of roasted garlic, and the nutty crunch of almonds. Can it get any better?

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease the surface with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil.

Trim the ends of the asparagus to remove the woody part. Place the asparasgus on the sheet pan, and cover with minced garlic. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus and minced garlic until lightly covered. Season with Creole seasoning and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Roast the asparagus for about 9-12 minutes until the asparagus are tender.

The amount of time it takes to roast the asparagus will be slightly different depending on the size of the asparagus. Thinner stalks will take a shorter amount of time. Bigger stalks will take a longer amount of time
