    Oven roasted apseragus?

    Advertisements
    I just found a new love for these veggies, yet I can make them. Everytime I tried to make them on the stove, they are gross and slimy and stringy. I heard someine mention roasting them in the oven, how do you do this? Thanks!

    I love to grill them! They get tender, but have a great taste and stay firm. I LOVE asparagus too, I wish I had found it before the age of 27!

    Steam them, grill them, roast them but make sure you don't overcook them. That is why they'd be mushy.

    Stringy = not prepared correctly or you chose older ones. You want to choose asparagus that are thin and tightly closed at the top. After you wash them at home, hold the top with one hand, and the bottom with the other, and bend the top over until the asparagus snaps. Where it snaps on its own is the most tender. The part at the bottom would be stringy and gross if you were to cook it.

    Me too. I never knew they could be so good.
    Thanks for the tip Schaele. I will make sure to keep that in mind.
    As far as roasting them, how hot the oven and how long? I would like to season them with salt/pepper, a little olive oil, and some dried spices. Would that work?

    I like to do them in a pan and sautee them with olive oil and spices just until they're really bright green. That's when they're perfect

    i roast mine and theyre great every time.
    youre supposed to cut off (or snap) about an inch of the bottoms. Then i spread them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Drizzle some EVOO, sprinkle some minced dried garlic, sea salt and cracked pepper. mix with your hands. Bake at 400 for 20-25 min, turning over once.

    Wonderful! Thank so much ladies for helping me out. I am a beginner to this whole cooking thing, but loving every minute of it. DH loves it too because now there is a variety of choices instead of five for dinner LOL. I am starting to gain more confidence in myself, and would love to continue to do a more balance style of cooking for our children as well. So I am sure I will be asking lots of questions in the future LOL
