(Bacon, Asparagus,Tomato) From Better Nutrition magazine March 2015. You can if you prefer substitute about 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomatoes for fresh because the flavor and quality of fresh tomatoes are hit and miss this time of year.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp
    olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb
    fresh asparagus
  • ·
    salt, to taste
  • 1 large
    shallot
  • 1 large
    tomato, diced (i used small grape tomatoes)
  • 1 Tbsp
    dark aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp
    dijon mustard (i used closer to 1 1/4 teaspoon of dijon)
  • ·
    fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 4-6
    strips of bacon (or use your favorite vegetarian bacon)

How to Make Roasted B A T

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine the asparagus and shallots. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over the vegetables, season to taste with salt. Toss to coat.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to a large, parchment-lined baking sheet. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer for even roasting.
  4. On another parchment-lined baking sheet place the bacon also in a single layer. Roast vegetables and bacon on the same rack, approximately 15 minutes or to your desired crispness. The bacon may need longer to cook than the asparagus.
  5. While the vegetables and bacon roast, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and cracked black pepper. Whisk ingredients to lightly emulsify. Set aside.
  6. Once the bacon is crispy remove it from the oven and drain on paper towels. Transfer the roasted asparagus and shallots to a serving dish or platter. Top the vegetables with the tomatoes then drizzle with the balsamic emulsion. Crumble the bacon over the tomatoes. Serve immediately.
