This is just a simple how-to for roasted asparagus. Cooking times can vary, depending on how thick your stalks are, so adjust accordingly.
- 1 bunch green asparagus
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 400° F. Snap off the woody ends of the stalks, rinse well, and dry thoroughly with paper towels. Lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil to coat lightly. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10 minutes; then shake the baking sheet to turn and roll the asparagus. Bake for another 4-5 minutes, until the asparagus are a vibrant, shiny, cooked shade of green and their skins are lightly blistered and slightly wrinkled. They should be soft but not shriveled or mushy.
