Roasted Asparagus

18 Jul

Something like seven years ago, my friend Katy taught me to cook asparagus. Sadly, I don’t think I had even tried those funny-looking green stalks before! Asparagus is definitely one of those vegetables that can be daunting if you aren’t sure how to prepare it. Katy’s method is so good, I’ve used variations of it ever since.

You’ll need:

A heap of asparagus

A foil-lined pan or cookie sheet

Olive oil

And seasoning! Katy uses coarse salt and lemon pepper; I like coarse salt, pepper, and smashed cloves of garlic.

I begin by bending the asparagus stalks near the end – usually, the dry, tough part will snap right off. Then, wash thoroughly.

Distribute in a single layer on the foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on the seasonings. Bake at 350 for 25 – 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus stalks.

Eat. Enjoy. Yes, it’s that easy!
