Roasted asparagus

cooking, food
I don't think asparagus is even properly in season yet, but it looked so lovely when I was at the supermarket that I couldn't resist. Here's what I did with it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Break off the woody bottom ends of the asparagus spears. Put them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle liberally with olive oil.

  3. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until they're cooked through and starting to brown a bit. Give the pan a good shake or roll the aparagus around a bit with a spatula to encourage them to brown evenly. (My asparagus always end up more browned on one side than the other. It's fine.)

Make more than you think you need - these get eaten fast.

I do this, too, but I press a few cloves of garlic over top rather than salting. (For some reason it settled out that I salt the green beans and garlic the asparagus. Dunno why; could do it either way.)
