Stuff I Feed My Kid: Roasted Asparagus Tips

We all know that it’s not always eat to get your kids to eat their veggies.  I am here to solve that problem.  My kid won’t eat his veggies either.

Actually, that’s not completely true.  Bug does pretty well with his veggies… and he especially like these asparagus tips.  I think he really just likes that he can pick them up.  (We still usually feed him his dinner… he eats table foods the rest of the day.)  I like this super easy asparagus recipe because I can make it for the whole family.  Oh, and because it’s healthy.

 

You really don’t need a whole lot:

  • Asparagus
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper & whatever other seasonings you want

Preheat your oven to 400.  Rinse & dry the asparagus and cut off the woody ends.

Lay out the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil… you really don’t need much.  Then, sprinkle with salt, pepper & other seasonings.  I just used Italian seasoning.

Throw the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes.  Well, maybe you shouldn’t throw the pan… maybe you should gently place it in the oven.  Once it cools, cut into whatever size pieces your baby can handle.  You could easily put the roasted asparagus into a food processor with a little water for a healthy puree.

Enjoy!
