Sometimes you want to have a healthy meal but you just don’t have all that energy to make it! Instead of making some unhealthy food fast just to satisfy the starving tummies, you can make an entire meal all in the oven. I’ve already posted my recipes for Oven Baked Salmon, then Garlic Baby Portobello Mushrooms, and Teriyaki Chicken Drumsticks. Here’s how to add Asparagus to the mix.
- Sea salt
- Garlic powder (optional)
- Olive oil
0. Preheat oven to 400℉.
1. Trim your asparagus so that the tough parts are gone. If you want, you can also peel your asparagus with a peeler if you prefer it that way. (I don’t.)
2. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
3. Now, you can either place your prepared asparagus on the baking pan and drizzle olive oil over it, or dump your olive oil on a plate, roll the asparagus around in it so that it is evenly coated, and then place it on the baking dish.
4. Now season with sea salt and garlic powder:
5. Pop it in the oven for 15 minutes. I find that in my oven, 15 minutes is perfect amount of cooked-ness. If you know you like yours more tender, then you can cook it for a couple minutes more.
6. After 15 minutes, it’s ready to be served!
