This simple side dish is ready in 15 minutes or less and is a great addition to any meal. I season with regular old sea salt and fresh ground pepper, but you can add any spice you like. I think it would be great with lemon pepper, or garlic salt as well. And since it is spring, and asparagus is in season....you can try them all!
Oven Roasted Asparagus
1 Bunch Asparagus
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Prepping your asparagus is super easy, but I don't think many people do it right. Never use a knife to cut the ends off. Instead, grasp your asparagus by both ends and begin to bend. The asparagus will snap where it is supposed to snap naturally. Leaving the woody end to be discarded and the tender, tasty end for you to eat!
Next place your trimmed asparagus onto a baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Using your hands, toss the asparagus so every piece is coated with olive oil.
Spread evenly on the baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper, once again tossing to coat.
Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes at 350 degrees or until asparagus is tender. You can serve as a side dish with dinner, or with scrambled eggs for breakfast!
