Ovenroasted Asparagus Recipe @pinch

Lisa shared a basic recipe for oven haveroasted asparagus anyone can make. It is an easy side dish that goes with any meat, seafood, or poultry dish. Seasoned simply, the asparagus is salty and savory. A great side dish for spring and early summer when fresh asparagus is in season. Roasting vegetables brings out great flavor, without adding calories. This is a simple process that can be used on almost any hearty vegetable, Brussels sprouts, carrots, green beans, etc. If you haven't ever roasted veggies before, give it a try!

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Vegetables Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 bunch(es) asparagus, organic or regular
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil, extra virgin
  • - salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease the pan. Clean asparagus. You can bend the stalks and they will naturally break where they are dry. Or you can cut them above the white stalk area. Discard the stems. Lay the spears on the prepared baking sheet
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the stalks. Use a brush to coat them evenly- there shouldn't be a lot of oil, just enough to cover them
  • Once the stalks are brushed completely with oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder should be lightly sprinkled over them
  • Place them in the oven on the middle rack
  • Roast them in a 375 degree F oven turning at 20-minute intervals. Continue to cook them until they begin to brown - you can adjust the time if you like them less or more done. I usually use the entire hour. The size of the stalks may change the cooking time as well, thicker stalks take longer than thin ones. Re-season them with salt and pepper, using a light hand. Serve hot out of the oven!
