Rosemary Roasted Asparagus + Tomatoes with Toasted Sunflower Seeds

Tossing veggies with your favorite vinaigrette, roasting and topping them with toasted seeds makes a quick and delicious side dish!

Back in March, our Supper Club theme was Green. I was working on some green tea truffles, but the recipe proportions were so off that it wasn’t salvageable. So I looked at what I had on hand to make something green that was quick and easy.

I had some asparagus in the fridge, and leftover vinaigrette from the salmon recipe that I had made a few days before that.

I also love roasted tomatoes, and I had a bunch of multi-colored ones on hand, too.

While this was roasting, I quickly toasted some sunflower seeds in a dry skillet on the stovetop. It added a really nice crunch to the top.

Feel free to use any vinaigrette you have on hand, or even just a quick mix of oil and vinegar with a spritz of lemon or lime juice. Easy peasy!

I was definitely disappointed that the truffles were a flop, but this side dish was well received by the club, and it definitely felt good to be able to throw something together that was so tasty!
