Roasted Asparagus

Submitted by: SEESKO

Introduction

In an effort to get my veggies in and try new things. I came across this easy recipe. Pretty darn good. In an effort to get my veggies in and try new things. I came across this easy recipe. Pretty darn good.

Ingredients

    1 lb asparagus
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or 1/4 teaspoon regular table salt)

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Cut off the woody bottom part of the asparagus spears and discard.
With a vegetable peeler, peel off the skin on the bottom 2-3 inches of the spears (this keeps the asparagus from being all "stringy" and if you eat asparagus you know what I mean by that).
Place asparagus on foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt.
With your hands, roll the asparagus around until they are evenly coated with oil and salt.
Roast for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your stalks and how tender you like them.
8They should be tender when pierced with the tip of a knife.
The tips of the spears will get very brown but watch them to prevent burning.
They are great plain, but sometimes I serve them with a light vinaigrette if we need something acidic to balance out our meal.
