Well hello to plate prettiness! This Low-carb Asparagus Mimosa is not only ridiculously delicious, super easy to make, but it’s also one of the prettiest plates I’ve stared down at in a while!

The asparagus is roasted to bring out the flavour, but feel free to steam or griddle if you prefer. Topped with hard boiled eggs and a zingy Dijon dressing, it’s great for a BBQ or light vegetarian keto meal or as a healthy keto-friendly side dish. Pair with your favourite source of protein for a balanced keto dinner.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
