Ingredients

  • 5.3 ounces Asparagus
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

To garnish:

  • Parsley optional

Instructions

  • Rinse your asparagus well and pat dry.
  • Cut off any tough or chewy stalk parts. I poke into my asparagus with my fingernail to see if it's tough and according to that I decide where to cut. The fresher your asparagus the less of a chance that you will need to cut off anything.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit/180 Celsius.
  • Place your asparagus on a prepared tray with baking sheet.
  • Spread the chopped garlic over the asparagus. Sprinkle the olive oil equally all over.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 Fahrenheit or until the asparagus are cooked through. Keep an eye on your asparagus in the oven, the cooking time may vary.
