Coconut Oil roasted Asparagus

Asparagus roasted in Coconut Oil

I’m obsessed with Coconut Oil.  I ran out of Brussel Sprouts and had some asparagus left over in the fridge.  These are very interesting.  My favorite is when the asparagus turns a little dark and crispy.  Not that you should read anything into that …

 Coconut Oil is amazing and it’s really good for you – it’s making a comeback in all the healthy food circles. I decided to try it with the Asparagus.  The results?  A slightly nutty flavor and a snappy crunch. 

Serves: 4

Hands-on time: 25 minutes.
Total time: 1 hour, 15 minutes.

Ingredients
  • Asparagus (1 bunch)
  • Expeller pressed coconut oil (3T)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Black pepper, freshly ground (to taste)

Equipment

  • Oven proof cooking pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the bottom ends off.
  3. Turn stove to medium heat. In cooking pan, add coconut oil and asparagus. Melt the coconut oil.
  4. Toss a few times in the pan and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.
  5. Roast in the oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Toss the asparagus occasionally so they brown evenly. 
  6. Remove from the oven. Add additional sea salt and black pepper if necessary. 
  7. Serve immediately.

  4. Me too, on the coconut oil. I just got back from living in the caribbean for 3 months. I would buy my coconut water, oil, milk, meat on the side of the road from the locals. (coconut meat that is) These guys would hold a coconut in one hand and a machete in the other and open a coconut with one swoop. I have blogged about the benefits of coconut oil a couple times. It is a medium chain fatty acid, (one of the few). It is the most efficient delivery of glucose to cells. Does not even need insulin. very low on glycemic index. Very useful in early stage alzheimers and candida. I use it in nutritive smoothies everyday. Even at room temperature it smooths out in blender.
