Roasted Asparagus With Mushrooms & Bacon

Roasted Asparagus With Mushrooms & Bacon

This super quick, healthy, grain free dinner is so tasty, and smells amazing while it's roasting. I've been making it a couple of times a week lately, with all variety of vegetables. It's a great way to make any vegetables palatable to my children. They LOVE this meal! 

I use half of a pack of nitrate-free bacon, so each package makes two meals, and each time I make it I use whatever vegetables will roast up nicely together. Tonight, it's asparagus & mushrooms! Other great combos I've made include broccoli & garlic, cauliflower & carrots, and potato & onion.


chopped bacon

First, chop the bacon. I generally prefer using scissors for meat; they're just easy to handle and then there's no cutting board to wash. Using half the bacon from a 1 lb package, separate the slices just so they're not stuck together, then bundle them and cut into 1/2" pieces, directly into a deep baking dish. Mine is about 8" x 13" x 2". Break up any clumps a bit so the bacon is spread evenly.

Bake in a 375 degree oven while you prep the veggies. If you're partial to crispy bacon, you might want to let the bacon brown just a bit before you add the vegetables, since the asparagus & mushrooms will cook relatively quickly. If you're using potatoes, they will need to cook just about as long as the bacon.

chopped asparagus

Remove the ends from 1 lb of asparagus. Instead of using a knife, you can hold each stalk with two hands and snap the bottom off. It should break off the tough ends at just the right place. Chop the stalks into about 1" lengths.

chopped mushrooms

Quarter one 6 oz tub of mushrooms. Use portabellas, button, or whatever mushrooms you prefer. Add all the sliced veggies to the bacon, and stir to combine.

Bake for about 10 minutes, until your veggies are tender. Stir a couple of times during cooking so it cooks evenly and the flavors mix. There won't be any leftovers ;)

Lovely! My kind of dish. I bet you could even substitute some kind of sausage for the bacon just for variety. I'm hungry now!

Wow! That may be the most awesome thing I have ever seen. I love the grow your own mushrooms thing.
And nothing like making some fresh mushroom risotto straight from your own mushroom garden, huh? Very nice.

I don't know why I've never thought to do this with asparagus before! I love using it with green beans. My favorite is to use brussel sprouts and also chop up an apple and roast it all together.
