Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Baked Almond Asparagus

Very Yummy!  I thought it needed a little salt so I just sprinkled it on top.   After that it was good.  Next time I will sprinkle with salt right after I spritz with olive oil.  Then add almond mixture. 

Baked Almond Asparagus

Makes 2 servings
Weight Watchers:  4 pp+

  • 1/2 lb. asparagus
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  1. Place all ingredients except the asparagus into a food processor and blend.
  2. Clean your asparagus the way you usually do and spread it on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Spray the asparagus with a very light coating of olive oil using a non-aerosol oil sprayer.
  4. Sprinkle your asparagus with the nut mixture. Use all of it. It will seem like to much, but trust me. Use all of it.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F. until it reaches your preferred level of “done-ness” (Is that a word? I don’t think so. But we’ll pretend it is for now.)
  6. Allow to cool slightly and serve.
