Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes & Asparagus by The Whole Cook vertical

I love roasting every vegetable ever created. Roasting brings out so much more flavor than other cooking methods. Let’s just roast all the things.

These Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes & Asparagus cook quickly. We can all appreciate that, can’t we? They require only fifteen minutes or less in the oven, making this side dish an extra easy way to add fresh vegetables to dinner even on a busy weeknight.

Plus the preparation just can’t get any easier. Give the asparagus a few chops with a knife and just throw everything on the pan. Boom. You’re ready for the oven.

Have you grilled or roasted tomatoes before? If you use grape or cherry tomatoes they’ll soften up fast and the skin will burst just a bit. The heat makes them taste infinitely more flavorful than when they’re left uncooked.

Asparagus, like tomatoes, don’t require much cooking time. In fact they cook so fast that the biggest mistake people make with them is overdoing it. Don’t do that. With too much heat they become mushy, stringy, and the texture is just blah. You want your asparagus to have a little crunch left. When they do you’ll find they’re just perfect and a yummy complement to the softened tomatoes.
