Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

This Easter, my father-in-law made turkey, so I decided to bring 2 simple side dishes and a decadent pie for dessert.

The first side was this beautiful and tasty asparagus dish.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Asparagus is baked until tender and topped with melted butter that is infused with soy and balsamic. It’s really easy, and if you use dairy-free butter, it can even be vegan.

This is definitely a great, simple side dish that would be great with a variety of main courses.

    I envy you finding skinny asparagus! Not a fan of the thick, woody stuff. This looks good!
