Roasting vegetables brings out great flavor without adding calories. This is a simple process that can be used on almost any hearty vegetable, brussel sprouts, carrots, green beans etc. If you haven't ever roasted veggies before- give it a try!

How to Make Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease the pan.
  • 2Clean asparagus. You can bend the stalks and they will naturally break where they are dry. Or you can cut them above the white stalk area. Discard the stems.
  • 3Lay the spears on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the stalks. Use a brush to coat them evenly- there shouldn't be a lot of oil, just enough to cover them.
  • 4Once the stalks are brushed completely with oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder should be lightly sprinkled over them. Place them in the oven on the middle rack.
  • 5Roast in a 375 degree F oven turning them at 20 minute intervals. Continue to cook them until they begin to brown- you can adjust the time if you like them less or more done. I usually use the entire hour. The size of the stalks may change the cook time as well, thicker stalks take longer than thin ones. Re-season them with salt and pepper, using a light hand. Serve hot out of the oven!
