– 6 stalks of asparagus, washed

– 2 tablespoons bagged chopped sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil
– 3 cup fresh chopped romaine lettuce
– 2 tablespoons scooped out avocado

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Lay asparagus, eggplant and bell pepper in a single layer on the tray.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

7. Place romaine on a plate, and top with roasted veggies, avocado, and dressing/sun-dried tomatoes.
8. Eat now. Or pack up for later 🙂
