Perfect Roasted Asparagus

Perfect Roasted Asparagus

It’s asparagus season, and I can’t get enough of it. Roasting asparagus brings out its best. The tips get a little crispy in the oven, which I love, and the flavor is more concentrated than it would be if you steamed or sautéed it.

Roasted asparagus is the perfect springtime side dish, whether for brunch or dinner. As a bonus, it’s simple to throw together while your main dish cooks on the stove.

Basic roasted asparagus

1 large bunch (about 1 pound) fresh asparagus

1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil

Salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

My seasonings (use one or all, like I did)

Zest and juice of ½ medium lemon, preferably organic

Lemon wedges, from the remaining ½ lemon

Sprinkle of finely grated Parmesan cheese

Small handful of fresh mint or parsley, finely chopped

Light sprinkle of red pepper flakes

Other options

Pat or two of butter

Light drizzle of balsamic reduction or thick balsamic vinegar

Toasted sliced almonds
