This was one of the side dishes that I served with dinner yesterday.

We love Roasted Asparagus IN OUR HOUSEHOLD, & SINCE IT WAS ON SALE, I COULDN'T THINK OF A MORE PERFECT VEGETABLE to accompany our Barbequed Country Ribs than asparagus.

I made some pasta & a corn Souffle, those recipes are already posted, but although I make Roasted Asparagus quite often, I had never written it down.

Of course you can use olive or Canola oil, but I love the flavor that BLACK TRUFFLE OIL adds to the asparagus. It is quite expensive, but a little goes a long way, so use it sparingly. Its a great side

Ingredients

  • 2 lb
    fresh asparagus
  • 2-3 tsp
    kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1-2 tsp

    black truffle oil, (or canola or olive oil)

How to Make BLACK TRUFFLE OIL ROASTED ASPARAGUS

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut or trim fiberous bottom portion of asparagus from the bottom of spears, usually about 2 inches or at least where bottom end breaks off easily. PREHEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES F.

    Note where it breaks easily is the beginning of the tender part. Try to choose smaller spears, because they are usually more tender.
  2. Wash & dry asparagus
  3. Line a shallow pan with foil for easy clean up, then spray with non stick cooking spray.
  4. Arrange asparagus in a single layer in pan.
  5. Drizzle sparingly with truffle oil, then roll asparagus back and forth to coat all sides. NOTE: I ORDERED MY TRUFFLE OIL FROM AMAZON.
  6. Sprinkle with Kosher salt, & Black pepper, then roll back and forth to coat all sides.Add minced Garlic if desired.
  7. Place in Preheated 425 degrees oven & Roast for 15 to 20 minutes till crisp tender.
  8. Remove from oven and serve while hot.

    Please Note: Although Black Truffle Oil is quite expensive, you use it sparingly, and a little goes a long way, and it really does ENHANCE THE FLAVOR OF WHAT EVER YOU ARE USING IT ON, ESPECIALLY STEAKS.
