Tips for making the perfect roasted asparagus

  • Choose asparagus that are all the same thickness to ensure even cooking.
  • Either trim the asparagus with a knife, or hold either end of the asparagus stalk, and bend until the asparagus snaps. It will naturally snap where the woody end begins.
  • Simply coat the asparagus in olive oil and salt and pepper, or add your favorite herbs, spices or even parmesan cheese.
  • The thicker the asparagus stalks, the longer they will take to cook.
