Roasted Asparagus

DSC_0431

Super easy, and as delicious as it gets. Take advantage of our wonderful, local spears now. Yummy on their own with a crusty bread, some cheese or bean spread, or serve as a side–especially yummy with salmon.

2# fresh asparagus, trimmed
2-3 T olive oil
Sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Fresh thyme
Lemon wedges

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

Trim woody stem end from asparagus spears.

Place spears on a sheet pan, and drizzle with olive oil, salt (about a t should be enough), and cracked pepper. Toss spears with your hands to distribute oil and seasonings

Roast in pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes. Check for doneness, toss, and return to oven for up to 5 minutes more if necessary.

Remove asparagus from oven and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Transfer to a serving dish. Squeeze lemon juice on top, and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
