Simple Oven-Roasted Asparagus

junipersgame junipersgame
I used to be scared of making asparagus. Asparagus is one vegetable that it's easy to go wrong with! A couple years ago I figured out a quick, simple way to make asparagus that takes all of 15 minutes and everyone loves. Now, I make asparagus all the time.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus
1-2 lbs fresh asparagus spears
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp seasoning (I prefer Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning)

Preheat oven to 375F. Trim the ends off of your asparagus spears. I typically grasp the end of the spear in one hand and further up the spear in the other. Apply pressure, and the spear will break at the perfect point to get rid of any stringy or fibery bits. Discard the cut end of the asparagus, keep the rest of the spear. Put trimmed spears in a gallon-size plastic ziplock bag.

Once all spears are in the ziplock bag, drizzle in the olive oil and seasonings. Close the bag, leaving plenty of air. Shake vigorously, until spears are coated with oil and seasonings.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread asparagus on the baking sheet in a single layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove asparagus, and enjoy!

Thanks for sharing. Question: where can you buy the seasoning you mention?

I've found it at Walmart, Bilo, and most of the other grocery stores I've been to. It can be found on the seasoning aisle, typically next to other spice mixtures like seasoned salt or lemon pepper. I put the cajun seasoning on all sorts of things - popcorn, asparagus, leeks (YUM!), meat, etc. It's a great addition to the spice cabinet.

I love doing oven roasted asparagus. I don't use the bag method, though. I snap the ends off, brush on olive oil with a cooking brush, and then sprinkle sea salt and pepper on it. Yuuuum.

They taste good on the grill too!

I usually use salt, pepper and granulated garlic.
