How to Make Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus
While both vegetables can be roasted, for this recipe I like to roast the potatoes and quickly blanch the asparagus. This way, the potatoes get those lovely crisped edges that everyone loves. And the asparagus maintains its crisp-tender texture and bright green color.
Once my potatoes are nicely charred in a 400°F oven and my asparagus are out of their hot water bath, I drizzle everything with a sweet balsamic vinegar glaze. I also like to add a bit of sea vegetable powder if I have it on hand, but that's optional.
That's it: all you need for a well-balanced, vibrant, and crowd-pleasing plant-based side dish brimming with seasonal produce.
How to Season Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus
I always use Redmond Sea Salt these days. It adds minerals and trace minerals to any recipe, and brings forth the natural flavors of the roasted potatoes and asparagus. Redmond is offering special savings for the Natural Kitchen community, so you can save 15% by using the code "NaturalKitchen" when you check out.
You can make this yourself using a recipe like this, or you can take a shortcut like I did and use one that's pre-made. It's organic too! It does contain a little sugar, so if you want to avoid that here is a no-sugar and non-GMO variety. Or you can also make it yourself by just cooking down and reducing pure balsamic vinegar.
Onion Powder and Garlic Powder
These two seasonings are a culinary super power together. They just add so much "oomph" to any dish, and it's easier than chopping up loads of fresh garlic. Feel free to use them liberally in this recipe! I always prefer to use the organic onion powder and garlic powder.
