Roasted Asparagus

I was a veggie-roasting-virgin until about a week ago when I made broccoli. YUM! Brooke commented and suggested I try asparagus; a few days later, a roasted asparagus recipe appeared on Liz's Cooking Blog. Perfect! Here is her recipe, which was the easiest thing ever, and SO good!

  • 1-2 lbs asparagus (look for thin spears)
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly-cracked pepper
  • Lemon

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Snap bottoms off of spears and lay spears in one layer on a jelly roll pan.
  3. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for 10-15 minutes, or until a sharp knife easily slides into the thickest part of a spear.
  5. Lightly squeeze lemon juice over asparagus and serve.


  1. I love roasted asparagus. For sure the easiest, tastiest way to make veggies.
