Roasted Asparagus

26 Jul

Hey, people. I had roasted asparagus tonight. It was delicious. I have to stop and think every single time I type ‘asparagus’ because I want to spell it ‘asperagus’. Moving on.

  • 3 Tbs olive oyl
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

It’s quite simple, really. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and brush it with olive oyl, and then sprinkle some garlic powder on top of that (optional).

Prep your asparagus, breaking off the woody part at the end, and stick it in a bowl.

Combine your olive oyl, lemon juice, pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl, and whisk to combine.

Pour it over your asparagus, and toss to coat.

Place in an even layer on your prepared baking sheet. Try not to crowd them, because then they’ll just steam and not roast. Then forget to take a picture before it went in the oven because you’re a goober. Oh wait, that’s me. Moving on.

Roast in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or until tender and caramelized.

Yummy! Serve hot as a side dish to whatever you’re feeling, or stick it on a pizza, or on a salad, or in shrimp gumbo… Be like Bubba Gump. Woah my brain’s shutting down kthxbai.

Happy eating!
