Asparagus, A Great Spring Veggie

By Joy Musselman

Spring is a perfect time to try new seasonal veggies or come back to a favorite. One of my favorite spring vegetables is asparagus. Here is a great roasted asparagus recipe. Enjoy! 

Spring Veggies
The recipe is simple, but absolutely delicious​, and a great preparation for kids to enjoy.​

  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, medium thickness
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Break off tough ends of asparagus.  Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil (it takes less that you would think). Toss to coat the asparagus completely. Spread asparagus out in a single layer on baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for about 25 minutes until tender-crisp.  

Note: I’ve also ended this dish with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese or a drizzle of balsamic vinegar but found that I like the basic method the best.
