Two friends adventures in eating and cooking the way nature intended it
Tuesday, June 8, 2010
One of my favorite vegetables is asparagus. There are plenty of fancy ways you can cook it, lots of delicious ingredients that you can combine it with. The best in my opinion though? Fresh asparagus, roasted with olive oil, sea salt and cracked black pepper. This weekend the farmers market had a few bunches of asparagus and I stood in line to make sure I had one!
Snap the woody ends off - they'll break naturally at the tough point.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper (I like to crack it fresh over the spears before putting it in the oven)
400 degrees, 10 - 15 minutes depending on how browned or crunchy you like it
