Oven Roasted Asparagus– Best way to eat Asparagus

Oven Roasted Asparagus

(Best way to eat asparagus)

I love asparagus.  I use to steam it or boil it, which are both good ways to eat asparagus.  BUT then I tried oven roasted asparagus.  Wow! If you haven’t had asparagus this way you really are missing out.  We had this last night for dinner and my 3 year old ate it like candy.  No joke! He ate more asparagus than me!! I cut up small bite size pieces to give to my 1 year old and I was shocked and even he ate it!  We all were happy munching on some asparagus and I was really happy everyone in my family was eating vegetables, which can be hard with kids.  Give this recipe a try and let me know how it goes!

Oven Roasted Asparagus  When I buy asparagus, I like to look for the skinnier pieces instead of the really thick ones.  That is just a personal preference.  Preheat oven to 425 F.  Wash off the asparagus and cut off the tough white ends.  Sometimes I can cut off up to 1.5 – 2 inches.  I like to make sure I get the tough part off.  Spread the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.  That’s it! Easy!! Poke with a fork to make sure they are tender.  Mine are done at 10 minutes, but ovens can vary.
