Roasted Asparagus with Feta Cheese

Gluten FreeVegetarian

I’m not sure if you have this problem too, but I have the hardest time trying to get Cason to eat vegetables. He LOVES fruits, but will stiff arm me when it comes to vegetables.

The one thing that has worked is to mix the vegetables with something a little sweeter, I usually use apples or pears. (I guess he has his mommy’s sweet tooth.. and for that I’m sorry bud.) As he has gotten bigger he has enjoyed picking up and feeding himself, and mommy is still trying to sneak those vegetables in.

Asparagus, when roasted in the oven, tend to have a little bit of a sweeter taste. So I thought I would give this Roasted Asparagus with Feta Cheese recipe a shot.

He loved it! He kept reaching for the spoon and moaning for more, acting like it was the best meal I had ever fed him in his short life. This will definitely be a repeat recipe. And to be honest, this could actually work as a side dish for mommy and daddy and then you can cut up smaller pieces for your little one.

To get started, Preheat oven to 400º. Clean asparagus and snap off the woody part of the stem.
