Plus, carrots and asparagus make a great side to almost any meal. They add a little color to your dinner plate and a whole lotta flavor!


Carrots and asparagus have so much taste all on their own, that you really don’t need that many ingredients to spice them up. In fact, I only used a simple combination of olive oil, garlic salt, and black pepper. 

When roasted in the oven, the carrots release their naturally sweet flavor which compliments the salt and pepper perfectly.  Asparagus adds its own unique “earthy” taste to this side dish but it’s also known to soak up the flavors of its seasonings quite efficiently. So, you’ll really notice the savory garlic salt and pepper when taking a bite out of it.
