Pistachio + Honey Crusted Asparagus
Asparagus is generally pretty tasty but I think they are best with a crispy crumb - like this sweet and crunchy honey and pistachio crust.
I love this recipe from the Keep It Real Program. This is a really easy to make a plant-based side dish that tastes as good as it looks.
Why not serve this with my Teriyaki Salmon, zoodles and brown rice for a balanced meal.
