Quick and Easy Roasted Asparagus
To make this dish, really you only need two ingredients — the asparagus, and this amazing new Olive Oil Spray from Pompeian — plus your salt and pepper.
Simply start by laying out your asparagus on a cookie sheet. You can trim the ends off where it is really thick so all you have left is the thinner top portion. The bottom is not very good (but don’t throw them away! Store them in the freezer to put in soup stock).
After you get your asparagus ready, turn your oven on to 400 degrees and let it preheat. While it is pre-heating, spray your asparagus down in the olive oil spray.
The thing I LOVE about this new Avocado Oil Spray from Pompeian is the fact that I can spray, I can drip, or I can drizzle all with the touch of the nozzle. It makes it so easy when making different dishes.
Now that you have it sprayed, simply sprinkle on salt and pepper and place it in the oven to roast for about 15-20 minutes. You can do it longer depending on how roasted you want it.
I like mine a little crispier on the end.
After it is finished, if you have a lemon laying around, you can sprinkle on some fresh lemon juice to really take it over the top!
The Pompeian Avocado Spray that I used above, has a high heat spray content which makes it great for grilling, baking, or even broiling in the oven.
