Asparagus is extremely healthy and loaded with nutrients: it’s a good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K. Asparagus has an outstanding antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrient composition that helps reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
I had my first asparagus of the season this weekend and I was amazed what little effort it took to make such a tasty dish.
- 1 bunch fresh asparagus
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- Ground garlic pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice off the ends of the asparagus.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place asparagus on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and ground the garlic pepper over the asparagus.
Place into the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, until asparagus begins to darken and is tender, yet crisp.
