So, I thought I'd take a break from sugary sweets and post something healthy. Gotta throw it in there every once in awhile, right?
Luckily, I love any roasted vegetable. When in doubt... roast vegetables. You absolutely, positively cannot go wrong. I've become kinda lazy with my vegetable preparation. What I mean by that is, I buy the frozen veggies that you steam in the microwave. I mean, they're still good for you, and there's pretty much no work involved on my part to make them.
Lazy....... and I really don't feel bad about that. Hey, anyway I can cut corners, especially when it comes to making dinner, I'm there.
So, this roasted asparagus recipe, while you don't just throw a bag in the microwave to cook them, it's still hardly any work on my part....... and I totally feel like I'm eating something fancy. Don't ask me why, but for some reason asparagus screams fancy to me.
I only bought one bunch and soon regretted not buying two, so I doubled the recipe for all of you, because you WILL want more than one serving!
Anyway... go roast some veggies... more specifically... some asparagus. Word.
- 2 Bunches Asparagus
- 2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- Sea Salt, To Taste
- Course Black Pepper, To Taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F).
Rinse and dry the asparagus and cut or snap a few inches off the bottoms. Place the asparagus on a large baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread the asparagus out in a single layer. Roast for 20-25 minutes until tender, yet still crisp.
