Roasted Asparagus
Ingredients:
1 bunch asparagus
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon zest1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and break the ends off the asparagus. If your spears are large, you should also carefully peel the spears.
2. Arrange with plenty of space on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with zest and salt. Give the baking sheet a few shakes, and place into oven. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. Give the baking sheet a good shake halfway though. Asparagus are done when the edges are lightly browned, and the spears are a vivid green. Taste one to make sure it is cooked through. less
