HCG Diet Phase 2 Recipe: Roasted Asparagus
Phase: Low Calorie Phase Course: Side Dish
This recipe is safe for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet and counts as 1 vegetable serving. Also recommended for the ketogenic diet.
- 100 grams asparagus
- 2 cloves garlic, minced*
- ½ tsp parsley
- ¼ tsp oregano
- ⅛ tsp cracked black pepper or Simple Girl Steak Seasoning**
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cut off the woody ends of the asparagus and place on a sheet of non-stick aluminum foil.
Sprinkle the seasonings over top.
Wrap all ends of the foil up tightly to make a sealed 'pocket'.
Roast 15-20 minutes.
*You should always mince fresh garlic rather than using pre-minced garlic from the grocery store. Most pre-minced garlic contain preservatives. Be on the safe side... mince your own fresh garlic cloves for the best possible weight loss.
**Not all seasonings are safe for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet. Check the ingredients and avoid anything containing sugar, starches, oils, preservatives, and words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin. The Simple Girl Seasonings were created especially for the HCG Diet. They are gluten free, fat free, preservative free, contain no sugar or artificial sweeteners and are sweetened exclusively with HCG Diet approved stevia.
