This could not possibly be easier or more delicious. I used to steam asparagus, but roasting makes them so much more flavorful; I’m never going back.
PERFECT ROASTED ASPARAGUS
First, remove the tough ends from the spears (just bend them to see where they naturally break off). Then, all you do is place them on a baking tray with good-quality olive oil, roll them around so they’re thoroughly coated, season well with sea salt & pepper, and roast at 400F for about 8-10 minutes. Just before serving, squeeze some lemon over the top.
Tip: Go for thicker spears when roasting; they’re easier to keep from getting stringy and tough.
