Asparagus & Goat Cheese Sandwiches
What I used for two of us:
- 1 lb. asparagus (we ate the extra on the side)
- 1/2 baguette
- 1 lemon, juiced & zested
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- goat cheese (the more the merrier!)
- salt & pepper to taste
1. Toss asparagus with a few tablespoons olive oil & juice of half a lemon. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and top with salt & pepper. Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they are to your liking. I like mine a little on the crispy/al dente side with a little softness.
2. For the last 5 minutes of roasting time, put your baguette in the oven to warm through. Once bread & asparagus are done, cut bread open. Brush each side of bread with olive oil and spread a nice layer of goat cheese on one side (or two if you want). Top the goat cheese with asparagus. Squeeze lemon juice on top and sprinkle the lemon zest. Finish with salt & pepper and you have yourself a nice spring sandwich!
Next time I might drizzle some aged balsamic vinegar on top to make it sweet and tangy!
