Add Green to Your St. Patrick's Day Spread with Roasted Asparagus with Mushrooms

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


St. Patrick's Day is kind of a big deal in our house. We put up the shamrock decorations and we wear green, and I also try my hand at recreating Irish foods. Last year we had corned beef and cabbage. This year, I think I'll be making shepherd's pie, but I don't stick with the traditional ingredients that the recipe usually calls for because I have a house full of picky eaters. I have to tweak most of the recipes to suit my family's taste preferences. So, to put more green on our plates, I'll be adding a green side dish this year.  

We just got a Fresh Thyme grocery store in our area, and the produce prices are amazing. I've been loading up on fresh asparagus for half the price that my other local grocers have it priced. Since I have it stocked in abundance right now, I thought it would be a nice addition to green up our St. Patrick's Day spread this year. Golden Blossom Honey has several delicious looking asparagus recipes listed, but when I was browsing them, I immediately honed in on this Roasted Asparagus with Mushrooms recipe. 

Roasted Asparagus

Minimal ingredients and roasted in 20 minutes makes this my kind of side dish! Plus, it's so tasty, I just want to eat it right off the serving dish!

Ingredients

1 pound thin to medium asparagus spears, snap off woody stems
1/2 pound white or cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste

  1. When is St Patrick's this year?
    Ewww... can I pick out the shrooms and leave you the asparagus? :) Never liked it, thank God it's not even popular here. But it is an extremely good diuretic, indeed

    1. It's in just a few weeks. Seems like this year is already flying by, doesn't it?

      I never thought I'd like asparagus , so I always skipped it at the store. Then I saw a ranch asparagus recipe a few years back on another blog that piqued my interest, and have been hooked ever since.

    2. I tried eating it and I wish I could eat it since I can't eat cabbagy veggies, so the choice is really low for me, but I just couldn't stand its taste. We do currently enjoy the return of radishes with early spring. I mixed the red ones with horseradish and eat them for breaky like the true looney me is

    3. I love eating the red radishes raw. Now, horseradish? No, no, no for me. Jason loves it and has to buy his own little jar when we have dishes that he likes to eat it with. I've tried it with many different foods and it just does not fly with me.

    4. I eat it in very small quantities, for example I will grate radishes and mix in a teaspoon of horseradish in it, but I have a jar of it mixed with celery, which gives it a lovely blend. I could not eat it on itself, though. Like the regular radishes and asparagus, it is also an extremely good diuretic and frees you from toxins. In my country it is eaten freshly grated with some vinegar for Easter breakfast with boiled ham, sausages and eggs. I remember my granpa crying every year when he had to grate it :) And it looks wonderful in nature, we had it growing wildly all around our farm, it has huge leaves like elephant ears. Kinda like something from a jungle

    6. Blue, I am sure you don't need no stinking diet!

      Dezzy, we (as in Jason's family) usually has it on Christmas with their Prime Rib. I think they serve it at the bar with wings too. I once thought it was ranch dressing and gave my self a nasty surprise. I think people like to eat it with celery, too.

  8. This sounds good. I like asparagus I didn't even know though until my son and his wife were visiting a few years back and made it fresh. My mom had always used canned (ew) so I thought I hated it.
