  • 1 bunch asparagus *see note below
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste *see note below

Recipe notes:

Asparagus: I prefer to buy a medium thick asparagus for roasting. Sometimes really thin asparagus can end up stringy and extra thick asparagus can take longer to roast.
Salt: kosher salt is really yummy on roasted asparagus! The grains in kosher salt are a little bigger, so you get a nice bit of crunch. I highly recommend giving it a try, but regular salt will work great, too.


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F
  • Rinse and dry asparagus. Remove woody/tough ends and arrange asparagus on a baking sheet.
  • Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil over asparagus. Use your hands to move stalks around to cover them completely with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!
