Roasted Asparagus

Whenever I'm looking for an easy side dish recipe, Roasted Asparagus is usually at the top of my list. It's impossible to mess it up and almost everyone loves it.

Roasted Asparagus

Print Optimized Version

  • 2 large bunches of asparagus
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slowly bend one asparagus spear in half to see where it natually breaks. This tells you where to cut the rest of the bunch so that you can discard the woody ends (usually about the bottom 3 inches or so).

Lay the trimmed spears on a baking sheet. Drizzle with canola oil and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast for 15 minutes until crisp-tender. Serves 3-4 people.

Roasted Asparagus with Proscuitto Appetizer

If you like asparagus, this video from shows us how to make an easy appetizer with only 2 ingredients. Chef John uses the woody end of the asparagus as a handle rather than cut it off. Good idea. Lots of other fantastic recipes can be found at this site.
