Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter

Salty-sweet browned butter turns this asparagus into a delicious side dish.  Very easy and quick.  This is going to be on my Holiday menu for sure!

  • l lb. asparagus spears, trimmed
  • Cooking spray (I used olive oil spray)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Grated lemon rind for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Arrange asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Coat with spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 12 minutes or until tender.

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat.  Cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.  Drizzle over asparagus tossing well to coat.  Garnish with black pepper and lemon rind.
