Oven Roasted Asparagus

Yum
Vegetable Recipes

It has been awhile since I added a good side to the blog and what better then to have a delicious side of roasted asparagus. The vegetable is high in iron and vitamin K, goes well with any main entree and adds some green to your plate. I have been a fan of asparagus since I was a boy and a hungry boy needs to have his food ready quick, this is a simple recipe that does not take much time to make and since aparagus is sold in bunches you will have a large amount of the spears on hand. The main thing with asparagus is to try to buy spears that are not very thick as these are older and have been grown longer, you want medium size spears, they taste better and are quicker to make. I like to cut the bottom of the spear by about 2 inches to shorten them as the taste that I enjoy is towards the top. Use a baking sheet and to avoid making too much of a mess you can wrap some aluminium foil around it before you drench them with olive oil. Broiling can be different for different ovens so make sure you start to watch your asparagus after 8 minutes to not burn.
