Truffle Roasted Asparagus with Shallots

How many times have you sat down at a restaurant and exclaimed, “Oh my god, they have truffle fries!”

No? Just us? Well, if you’ve never had them, truffle fries are kind of to die for. French fries, however, are on our sad list of inflammatory foods.

One solution: take that amazing truffle powder flavor and put it on a healthy vegetable. It’s not quite the same, but it’s really, really tasty.

Plus, adding truffle to roasted asparagus takes a typical vegetable side dish and makes it fancy enough to serve at a dinner party or on a holiday table.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Asparagus is one of our favorite vegetables, especially when it’s in season in the spring and is super fresh and crunchy. It’s a great source of folate and vitamins like A, C, and K and contains compounds that act like probiotics, so it can help with digestion and prevent bloating. Drizzle on a little avocado oil and you’ve got your healthy fats, too.
