Roasted Asparagus Recipe

Roasted Asparagus

I hate coming up with sides for meals. But this roasted asparagus is so quick and easy that it has become my go-to side for many meals.

I will be the first to admit, I am really bad about making sides for meals. That being said, one of our more common sides is some simple roasted asparagus. It is quick, cheap, and easy to make. The first time I had it cooked this way was visiting family and my brother-in-law made this for us.

The next time we got some asparagus in our fruit/veggie co-op I sent him a text asking how to make it. You can adapt this to go with many different recipes just by changing the seasonings you use on the asparagus. I typically use onion powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning on mine.

Anyone who knew me growing up would be shocked to know that I eat this. I never ate anything green. As I gotten older, I have expanded my palette a little bit and started eating some greens.

Step by Step

Bend the asparagus until it snaps so you know where to trim the asparagus.

Heat the butter in a skillet large enough for the asparagus over medium heat, until it has melted.

Place the asparagus in the pan and sprinkle with your chosen seasonings.

Cook the asparagus, turning occasionally, until the asparagus is tender.
