Roasted asparagus

I’ve been eating asparagus more often because it’s easy to buy package-free. When I buy it, I immediately put the spears in a glass of water when I get home to keep them fresh. Here’s a delicious and easy recipe for enjoying asparagus this spring!

Roasted asparagus recipe

Adapted from Cafe Delites

1 bunch of asparagus spears, woody ends removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 cup shredded mild cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, gruyere, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with vegetable shortening.
  2. Arrange asparagus on baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl mix together olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Drizzle the oil mixture over the asparagus and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes until they’re just beginning to get tender.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven and broil until the cheese melts and becomes golden (4-5 minutes).
  6. Serve immediately.
