When my in-laws were visiting us last month, I made a meal that included asparagus – and they raved over them! My mother in-law asked me how I made them and when I told her, she said she had never tried them that way before.

I grew up never eating asparagus – I was in my late 20’s the first time I tried them, if you can believe that!

Once I learned how to cook them, I quickly became addicted. They are so easy to cook and always taste delicious! I love cooking them when I am making steaks, they are the perfect accompaniment, along with mashed or baked potatoes!

So, without further ado, here is my super easy recipe for awesome asparagus!

Ingredients

1 bunch Asparagus

2 tablespoons garlic salt

olive oil

black pepper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Wash asparagus, and trim two inches off of the bottom (this is the hard part that does not taste very good!)

Spread evenly on a baking sheet (I line mine with tin foil for easy clean up)

Drizzle olive oil over asparagus, then sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper

Pop in the oven for 25 minutes.

See how easy that is?

Enjoy!

    I’m definitely going to try this as asparagus is my favourite vegetable and it works well as an aphrodisiac too! I usually steam my asparagus then sprinkle sea salt and balsamic vinegar over it. I first tried it this way in Spain and I loved it! I’ve never had it baked though. This sounds delicious :)

    Hey, this is what I do too! Although, I just use normal salt (my husband’s garlic salt intake is already WAY beyond normal.) It’s so delicious this way! Sometimes I add a dusting of parmesan, too. Now I can’t wait for spring (and asparagus season) to come…
