If you like asparagus, you are going to LOVE this roasted asparagus. I will admit that Roasted asparagus is one of my very favorite vegetable dishes of all time. Actually, asparagus prepared almost any way is one of my favorite veggies.

This recipe is so unbelievably easy to prepare and goes from raw asparagus to cooked in no time flat!

In my humble opinion, this method of cooking asparagus is far superior to steaming.

Asparagus cooked this way is incredible served as a side for dinner, brunch or lunch, and even breakfast.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR ROASTED ASPARAGUS

Asparagus stems can be very tough and woody, which are definitely not good to eat. There is a super easy method for removing the tough end of an asparagus spear. Simply hold each end of a spear with your fingertips and pull the stem end towards you, it will naturally break at the proper point. There is no need to do this to each spear, simply lay this spear next to the bunch of asparagus and use the single spear as a guide to cut the other spears with a sharp knife.

Cooking time will ultimately depend on the thickness or thinness of the asparagus spears. If asparagus spears are super thin, cooking time will be reduced to approximately 10 minutes.

Be sure to set a timer to give the asparagus a toss/stir at the 10 minute mark.

This is an EXCELLENT side for a perfectly grilled steak, or perched beside some fried eggs for breakfast.
