Roasted Asparagus {PALEO}

My diet has changed in a crazy way!  I never would have thought to eat an entire bunch of asparagus for lunch a year ago.  Lunch food, as I used to know it, was always a sandwich, carrot sticks and perhaps some fruit.  But as I opened the fridge to find a bunch of asparagus that needed to be eaten in a bad way, I thought, “What the heck!”

I sliced up my usual chicken sausage and some green apple; trimmed the asparagus and tossed everything in just less than a tablespoon of coconut oil.  It all went on a rimmed baking sheet and then into the oven.  I used the broiler set to high.  My meal was ready in about ten minutes.  Bam, boom, lunch was served!  Now, you certainly don’t have to eat these roasted asparagus for lunch, you could have them for dinner or even breakfast.  You can save some for a friend, or not.  Either way, this simple and fast cooking method makes some delish asparagus!

Paleo roasted asparagus with sausage and apples.  A quick and easy lunch or dinner idea.
