Roasted Asparagus with Oranges

2 servings
Preparation 10 min
Cooking 10 min

180 calories per serving 


20 asparagus, average size   400 g
2 oranges, cut into rounds   360 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar   2.5 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g


  1. Preheat the oven to 230ºC/450ºF.
  2. Prepare the asparagus. Peel the oranges with a small paring knife, removing all the pith. Slice the oranges into rounds, reserving any juice that runs out.
  3. Lay the asparagus on an oiled baking tray. Coat thoroughly with oil, then add salt. Cook until the asparagus change colour, about 8-10 min, depending on their size. Shake the tray a couple times during cooking, so that the asparagus will grill evenly.
  4. Arrange the asparagus on a serving plate. Add the orange rounds, reserved juice, and the oil left over from the cooking tray. Sprinkle with few drops of balsamic vinegar. Serve.
