Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

I love the earthy tastes of mushrooms and asparagus.  Put them together and roast them in the oven, and you have an awesome side dish for Thanksgiving!  Mushrooms have always been a favorite of mine.  Asparagus was not a favorite until I became an adult.  Probably because all I ever had for asparagus as a kid was the canned mushy stuff!

This month, one recipe we are making as part of the Allrecipes Allstar Program is Quick and Flavorful Vegetables.  This recipe calls for the new Swanson Flavor Boost packet to be stirred into your vegetables once they are cooked.  If you haven’t tried this product, I am happy to inform you that it is worth the $1.99 you pay for the box.  I will definitely keep spares of the flavor booster around for future use!

    This look "holiday worthy" for sure. Our stores have the chicken and beef flavor boost, but I haven't seen the veggie one yet. I'll have to watch for it since this recipe is a real contender for this years menu. Thank you for sharing it.
