HOW DO YOU ROAST ASPARAGUS?

  • Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper, and spread in a single layer.
  • Roast at 425F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender, but crisp. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the asparagus spears.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a plate.
  • If you want, drizzle with Hollandaise Sauce – you won’t go wrong with that idea – and serve. 

HOW LONG IS ASPARAGUS GOOD FOR?

  • Raw asparagus keeps well in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also freeze fresh asparagus for up to 3 months.
