Oven Roasted Asparagus...

One of my very favorite vegetables on this planet has to be asparagus!  I think I could literally eat it by the pounds.  I realize that would not be good for me, but truth is truth and I am about nothing, if not keeping it real on here.  *lol*  Asparagus can be a little intimidating, but when done right, there are few vegetables that can touch it.  Also, if you are trying to broaden your child's veggie horizon, asparagus is a great place to start.  They have a mild flavor, similar to a green bean. 
Here is one of my favorite ways to prepare this veggie delight.  It's fast, easy, and on the table in no time!  Let's get going!
Oven Roasted Asparagus:
*Prep-Time: 2 minutes  *Cook Time: 10-12 minutes  *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 4-6
Here is what you will need:
  • 2 lbs. of Fresh Asparagus
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
Tools you will need:
  • Chef's Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Making Dish

To prepare your asparagus, you will take one rod and bend it till it snaps.
The bottom is a bit woody and fibrous, not really good for eating.
You can discard it.

Use your snapped rod as a guide, and trim the rest of your asparagus.

Place, in a single layer, in your baking dish, and drizzle with oil.

Season with salt and pepper.

Mix around to evenly coat.
Return to single layer.

And place in a 450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.


Serve with your favorite entrée and enjoy!

See, that was so simple!  Why wouldn't you try it? 

Let me know what you think and I would love to see your pictures on my Facebook page!
As always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
