For some reason I’m craving asparagus lately. I’ve eaten it 3 times since Sunday. Yes, 3 times. Maybe it’s my longing for spring.
A few years ago I discovered a no-mush, no-fail way to cook asparagus. I used to boil mine because it was what I thought you did. But now I bake it. And as an added bonus, by baking them, they don’t end up looking grey on your plate. Delish beyond belief!
- Line up the asparagus on a cookie sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil, then generously salt & pepper them.
- Bake in a preheated 500 degree oven. Yes you read that right! 500 degrees. (watch them closely)
- Bake for 5-10 minutes.
