Seared Asparagus With Balsamic Tomatoes


Asparagus is one of my all time favorite vegetables! Unfortunately, I’m the only person in my family who likes it. Despite this, I make some preparation of asparagus weekly. This particular recipe gets doubled and munched on for days– it’s just that good!

You Will Need:

  • 1lb fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2TBSP olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 4TBSP balsamic vinegar
  • 3TBSP crumbled goat cheese (optional)


  1. Preheat pan to medium-high heat until oil is hot. Add asparagus.
  2. Cook asparagus until just tender, turning every 2 minutes to avoid charring. Add garlic and saute until browned.
  3. Add diced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until vinegar begins to reduce.
  4. Season to taste and serve hot. Enjoy!

      It’s so delicious, and such a healthy vegetable! This is one of the best preparations of asparagus I’ve had to date– and I’m usually just a butter-and-salt kind of girl!
