Roasted Asparagus Recipe

Makes: 4 servings


Roasted Asparagus Recipe

1 pound  Asparagus spears (thick spears are best for roasting)
1-2 tablespoons  Extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves  Garlic, minced
 Kosher Salt
 Freshly grated black pepper
 Lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar)

Roasted Asparagus Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (205°C). Rinse the asparagus spears. If the ends are tough, break them off and either discard or save for stock. You can also use a vegetable peeler to peel away the tough outer skin of the fatter ends of the asparagus if you want.
  2. Line a roasting pan with foil. Arrange the asparagus spears in a single layer on the lined roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and rub the spears all over with the olive oil to coat. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and minced garlic, and rub over the asparagus spears to evenly distribute.
  3. Roast at 400°F (205°C) for 10 minutes, more or less, depending on your particular oven and how thick the spears are, until the asparagus are just lightly browned and tender when you pierce them with a fork.
  4. To serve, drizzle with fresh lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, and if you want, a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese.
