Easiest asparagus in the oven

Baked asparagus

This is a quick and easy to prepare side dish, where you bake the asparagus in the oven (rather than steam it, as in this recipe).  The trick is to use garlic and to let the asparagus bake until it’s a bit crunchy (when it darkens and looks wrinkled, it’s ready!).

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1-2 Tbsp oil
  • 1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions:

  1. Wash and trim asparagus. Place in a bowl.
  2. Mix crushed garlic cloves with oil and balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour marinade over asparagus and mix well. Do not skip this step – it is important that the asparagus is covered with this marinade.
  4. Line up asparagus on baking tray, pouring any remaining marinade on top of it and bake in the oven (350F) for 20-30 minutes or until asparagus is done.
