Simple Roasted Asparagus

(0 Votes)
Coming In:
15 Min

This is the easy roasted asparagus recipe you've been waiting to find! From start to finish, our Simple Roasted Asparagus takes less than 10 minutes, which means you can enjoy easy oven roasted vegetables any day of the week!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine oil, sugar, salt, and pepper; drizzle over asparagus and toss gently until evenly coated.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender. Serve immediately.
  • Select firm, green spears with tightly closed tips. If buying and cooking them on the same day is not an option, store asparagus upright in a container, standing in about an inch of water; cover container with a plastic bag, and refrigerate up to 3 or 4 days.
  • Our Simple Roasted Asparagus is good, but have you tried our roasted carrots or roasted Brussels sprouts? Check out the collection here

Since I would be the only one eating the asparagus, what's the best way to store and reheat the leftovers?

Hi there! If you'll be the only one eating the asparagus, we suggest cutting the recipe in half. However, if you'd like to make enough to enjoy for a few days afterwards, all you have to do is store them covered in your refrigerator and reheat in an oven or toaster oven. Enjoy!
