Roasted Asparagus

Season: Spring

Amy Wisniewski for Chowhound

This roasted asparagus recipe adds a deeper flavor compared to the usual method of poaching your asparagus. Just toss the asparagus in the oven to cook alongside fish or chicken, and dinner is served.

Editor's note: At the Co-op, we love roasted asparagus prepared simply and on its own as it is in this recipe; it's also delicious with a sqeeze of lemon or some fresh-grated parmesan.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the upper third.
  2. On a baking sheet, toss the asparagus with the olive oil until evenly coated. Arrange in a single layer and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for 5 minutes, shake the pan, then roast until just tender when pierced with a knife, about 5 minutes more.
