I have been experimenting with my new fancy Breville toaster oven and it’s been a life-changer! I don’t always want to turn the regular oven on for a small dish, so this new tabletop oven has widened my options.
Zesty Dipping Sauce for Roasted Asparagus
3 Tbs mayonnaise
1-2 Tbs plain nonfat yogurt
2 Tbs roasted sweet red pepper, diced fine
Mix all ingredients together. Serve as a dipping sauce or as relish for black bean burgers or other sandwich fillings.
1 lb asparagus (the fat kind preferred), washed and bottoms snapped off (reserve to make broth for another recipe)
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt or coarse kosher salt for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350°. Rub olive oil over asparagus spears and place on rimmed baking sheet, foil or, ideally, broiler-type rack. Cook for 15 minutes, sprinkle with salt and serve with dipping sauce.
