Fresh asparagus tossed with garlic, extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper; then roasted until caramelized.
Do you like asparagus? I’m not a big fan, but my husband and eldest daughter love it. Since she’s at college and the rest of us don’t like it, I generally only make this during the holidays.
The recipe is super simple and can be ready in about 20 minutes. Start by trimming the ends of the asparagus; then steam them over a double boiler for about 1 minute.
Toss them with fresh minced garlic, extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper; then roast them in a 425 degree F oven for about 10 minutes.
My family loves this recipe for Garlic Roasted Asparagus; especially when I make it with a Standing Rib Roast for Christmas dinner. ~Enjoy!
- 1 Bunch Asparagus
- 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Trim the asparagus by cutting off about 1" from the bottom. Rinse under cold water and add to a double boiler. Steam asparagus for approximately 1 minute so that it has softened but still firm.
Add the asparagus to a bowl along with the garlic, salt and pepper. Drizzle with a little olive oil and place on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes.
