Roasted Asparagus

After my weekend of poor eating my body has been craving something healthy!  So I made my favorite veggie, asparagus.  Of all the fancy ways to make asparagus edible I like the KISS (keep it simple stupid) method.  I hate mushy vegetables which you can get by over boiling them.  However, I have a simple way to make them without over or under cooking them.

Even my dog Tabu liked it!  I’ll take that as a seal of approval.



1 bushel of asparagus

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp garlic powder

Sea Salt to taste

Crushed black pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  Rinse asparagus under cool water and dry with a paper towel.  Cut off the ends of asparagus, about an inch.  Place asparagus on the cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil.  Season with garlic powder, salt & pepper.

Roll asparagus in oil and seasonings to ensure even coverage.  Roast uncovered for 13-18 minutes depending on how tender you prefer them to be.  Flip asparagus about halfway through cooking time.  Serve immediately while still warm.
