How to Roast Asparagus
Roasted asparagus is one of our favorite dishes. It is ridiculously fast and easy to do. We love that it is served alone, added to tortillas, and even served on top of crostini for a simple appetizer (or lunch). Grilling your own bunch of asparagus is easy and can be done in three steps.
- Rinse, pat dry, and trim the ends of each stem. Peel off the thicker stems as needed (see below).
- Mix with olive oil, salt and pepper. Or add your favorite seasonings. We often add a little fresh lemon zest and garlic. Here's our garlic roasted asparagus for you to look at.
- Bake in a 400 degree oven until the tips are lightly browned and the stems are tender.
Depending on how thick the asparagus is, it will take 15 to 25 minutes to bake. We try to buy thin-stemmed asparagus when we can find them. If you can only find thick asparagus with woody stems, we recommend that you use a vegetable peeler to peel off the thick outer shell of the stems.
