1 Tablespoon Walnut Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Roast (15 - 20 minutes in 375F oven) or grill asparagus (8-10 minutes total, flipping after 4-5 minutes over indirect heat).

In small bowl combine hot water with packet of Healthy Gourmet Kitchen Roasted Red Pepper Dip Mix. Let sit 3 - 5 minutes.

Stir in oil, lemon juice and vinegar to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Arrange cooked asparagus on 4 - 6 plates and top with a little of the red pepper mixture.

If you have leftover red pepper chopped sauce, turn it into a salad dressing by adding 2 - 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar. You can puree or serve chunky. Store in refrigerator tightly sealed.
