Spring is wonderful for so many reasons and fresh asparagus is one of them. We got the most beautiful asparagus from our CSA and I had to bake it to melt in our mouths! I’m salivating just writing about it. What you will need:
1 bunch of fresh asparagus
The juice from one half of a lemon
3 TBS olive oil
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse the asparagus and twist off the bottoms that will be hard to chew. Place asparagus into a large plastic bag that zips shut. Add the other ingredients, seal bag and mix everything well by shaking the bag. Pour everything into a large glass baking dish and place onto the middle shelf of oven. Bake 10 minutes and shake dish to make sure everything is getting evenly baked. Return pan to oven and bake another 10 minutes. Check asparagus that it is browning. If browning, remove pan and serve hot. If not browning yet, bake another 5 minutes and repeat this step until baked. Enjoy!
