Tomato And Asparagus Side Dish

Jan 7, 2020 | Cook, Food

I have double ovens but around the holidays, they are both full of several different dishes.  This year I combined the side dishes and created a tomato, asparagus, onion, and garlic combination that was not only very colorful but was loaded with lots of flavor.  
Doesn’t this look like the healthiest dish you have ever seen!!!!
I sliced tomatoes on the vine into halves and cherry tomatoes into halves and laid them on a bed of fresh thyme.  I then peeled 2 bulbs of garlic and 4 shallots to throw into the mix.  I was going to leave it at that but decided to cut the ends off the asparagus sprouts and laid them on top of the mixture.  I love combining dishes and I love fresh extra virgin olive oil.  When we lived in Missouri, they had a store with a million different olive oils called, Olive, and you could go in and taste before you bought. It was really neat because you bought the glass container and filled it yourself.  Who can taste the difference in olive oil?  I can!!!  Well, now I can after living in Missouri :-).
I poured olive oil all over the vegetables and in my hand, combined garlic salt and pepper, rubbed my hands together and sprinkled the pepper and salt all over the dish.  I baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
If you have any leftovers, you can mash up the garlic as a past for another dish or combine all of the ingredients into eggs the next morning to make a frittata!!
