roasted asparagus

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. asparagus, ends trimmed
  • olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • salt & pepper to taste

Pro-tip: Asparagus requires little or no prep: Wash the spears and trim the ends by breaking or chopping.

If you steam the spears for about 5min, I personally think they taste delicious with no added seasoning. Just pure asparagus goodness.

Or, you can roast (bake) them at 400°F for about 10min with just a drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper.

Or, added a little lemon juice, à la this recipe: http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/lemon-pepper-asparagus/
